As we move into April (wow, the year is flying by), I’d like to ask for your feedback on the site/blog and find out — from you — what I can do to make it a better experience going forward.
Some specific questions I am wondering about include:
– Is anyone interested in posting some advertising on the site? If you know of anyone who is (or if you are in the position to do this), please contact me we can work something out together I am sure. One of the reasons I am asking is because it looks like I will need to get a dedicated server (and increased bandwidth) for the site in the near future, and asking the community for ideas to fund this was my first thought. We are getting a ton of traffic and it is almost doubling on a monthly basis (thank you!). The site is currently hosted on a shared server and I am blowing over the current allotment of bandwidth already.
– One of the areas I have not touched yet is with podcasting. I know this is a hot topic and wanted to know if anyone would *really* be interested in either hearing a weekly broadcast about the comic/blog and/or if anyone out there would be interested in doing a “seven minute conversation about Scrum” (OK… crappy title and we can work on it); this would basically be me interviewing people in the trenches on a weekly basis to find out what problems, issues, or impediments they are having while implementing Scrum. I know that people reading (and maybe listening) can learn a lot about this from others, and I am more than willing to start this if you are interested. We can keep it as confidential as you’d like!
– Translations. As you may have noticed, the comic strips are starting to get translated into local languages. If you are interested in assisting with this, please let me know and I will work with you to make this happen. The only compensation is “credit” to your name but it is always fun seeing them in lights (isn’t it?).
– Ideas for cartoons. Always welcome. And again, I will credit you however you’d like. Love to hear about real-life things that happen other than on teams that I work with!
That’s all for now.
I do appreciate your continued support both reading and helping me spread the word about this blog to people around the world. It is truly awesome to see it makes a positive impact (most of the time). It’s been a fun six month start so far, and hang on for more fun as we continue the journey together. Stick with me!
