By every metric, 2017 was a massive year for the website. The editorial content has successfully gone in directions that I never imagined possible. Our podcast, Touching Base, continues to have the most engaged fanbase in our network. Hell, Dillon’s doing a mailbag for the site. How big is that? DORN is on PGP now (bring back the forums). You know this one already, but our remote team is churning out top-shelf ‘tent on a daily basis. Duda and McGannon are back in the mix too. Two content beasts back throwing their weight around. You love to see that. And our most successful video was created by fucking J-Bone. I never imagined a scenario where I’d be typing those words.
Sure, we had the Sup? moment of 2017, but I think we all grew stronger because of it.
But I’m not flexing. The purpose of this isn’t to validate our strategy. I want real feedback. A major reason we’ve been able to create a community around *cringes* millennial content is because we engage with our readers. We aren’t only crunching numbers in Google Analytics. Engagement means something to us. I’d trade a column that gets 20,000 page views in an afternoon for a statistical dud that compels 5 people create user accounts and comment on the site. Everybody loves a dialogue.
So with our feet firmly planted at the starting line in the opening stage of the tour de Q1, I’d like to open the comments up for some reader feedback. Hey, let’s get some listener feedback in there as well. I’ve got time today. Tell us what you like. Tell us what you hated. Who do you want more of? Be honest, but don’t be a dick. Tell us what we can do to keep earning your business. The comment section is your white board.
Please respect the white board..
