a question for you


i’m wondering about what do with the funkypancake blog, so i’d value some feedback ! 

it’s been going for over 6 years and i haven’t changed the format (or content for that matter) much over that time.  We’ve got some major life changing events on the horizon, so now seemed a good time to review where it’s at

here are some questions you could cut and paste in to an email and ping back to me at 

* can you still be bothered to look at all this stuff  ?

* how often do you read it ?

*  and how – on a proper computer or a mobile phone etc ?

* do you look at the webpage or read via an RSS reader ?

* are there too many / too few pictures every day ?

* what sorts of pictures work best ? 

* would you like to see other life ramblings interspersed – eg my twitters etc ?

* would you like a little bit more life updating, which might involve some blog posts of just words.

* do you have any thoughts on better ways of displaying my wares ?

* are there any better design options or ways of doing the site that could make things easier ?

* are pages too slow to load ?

* what’s your favourite vegetable and why ?

* why don’t people leave comments any more ?  is it simply too tricky to work out how to do it or is there actually no one there ?

so there you go.  words.  a rare thing on funkypancake.  please send me an email and tell me what you think !  i’ll give you a week to reply and i’ll attempt to do some redesigning week after next

update: by the way, do include a link to your own webpage/twitter etc and/or if you know any good sites you think i might be interested in.  and i promise not to spam your email address
