LizianEvents News is now nearly 450 articles of age. Those of you have an idea about search engines and web awareness must know the implication of this figure. Those who search for LizianEvents will undoubtedly hit our pages. Not only this, the Community Members who contribute to this platform will also advantage themselves from those who visit the sites.
The engine room behind this site is becoming fairly complex. If the full potential was used in one ‘big hit’ there would be too much to take in, so little by little LEN grows. It is following a specific design plan, and the rising reading figures are due to the Community input, the articles, and the newspaper design. Patience is one of our most significant assets: Liz and I work through the architecture of LizianEvents with care. We test the site on an unpublished ‘nursery’ site before bringing new ideas onto the live site.
The latest addition is the ability to ask for opinions using a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ – ‘Poll’. It was used for the first time in yesterdays article about workshops. This poll will be allowed to run for one month, and we’ll abide by the results.
The implication of polls goes further: as Visitors and Community Members will see them as further evidence of our commitment to the community aspect of the shows. Liz and I feel this is a significant step for everyone involved in the organisation. Critical democratic choices made using a poll will quell any ideas of unfairness or bias in the format and running of OUR Well Being Shows.
We can be sure the next eighteen months will achieve incredible traffic to the site. This month see’s the addition of banner adverts on the front page. And we have an extensive list of articles and contributions for July. There will be other channels of communication added to build the connectivity of Community to Visitors, which is LEN’s purpose.
There are drawbacks to the format:
We are aware that some people feel the format of Community is not for them, and this is fine. Although, it is essential to accept the ‘organisation’ does not dictate to the Community Members. Our dedication to making OUR Well Being Shows a superb way of Community connecting to Visitor should not be underestimated. Everything we do is to connect Vistors to Community and The Well Being Shows. And, we are making headways, there is no doubting this achievement. As Darren Stanton commented in his remarkable article ‘I could find no other who follow this format’.
It is now evident the shows are growing in strength and stature. This week Liz received a wonderful testament to the influence of The Community. During the conversation, the Visitor used the words ‘The Community’: this fantastic moment is recognition of OUR identity from a Visitor. Soon we will have a universally recognised status, and once we pass this landmark there is no stopping the growth of OUR shows.
We have a superb month of articles ready for publishing and maybe another ‘Poll’! Good times ahead for The Community, no doubt about it – Well done to every one of you.
See You Soon
