Back in early August, Kevin posed the following question to readers:
What features would you like to see more of at Country Universe? Are there things we could be doing better? How can we make this a better site?
The post netted a good number of responses, all of which were taken into serious account, and many of which ended up playing out shortly after. Country Universe has seen a lot of expansion over the two months since the time of that post; in addition to three additional writers (Blake, Lynn, and myself), we’ve tried out a number of new or previously infrequent features, including, though not necessarily limited to:
- Classic Country Singles
- “Recommend a Track” discussions
- Yesterday’s Songs
- Songwriters Series
- Retro album reviews
- Analysis of news items and/or current trends
- Concert reviews
- Lynn-tastic notes on televised programs
- Music video reviews
- The comment policy
- The current banner (and theme)
- Personal reflections
Now that your memory is jogged, consider this post an opportunity to comment on your current feelings about the site. If you think we’re delivering too much of one thing, need to deliver more of another thing, should do something differently, should do something new entirely, what-have-you, we want to hear it. You can even be positive! (Wow!)
The only stipulation is to stay classy with your remarks. Any and all constructive criticism is 100% encouraged and desirable here; just realize that we work hard on everything you see and do have (some) feelings. But this site is ultimately about serving country music fans (namely, you), and what you tell us has a lot of bearing on what we do. So if you’ve got a concern, don’t hold back!
P.S. Before anyone mentions it, a handful of Favorite Songs by Favorite Artists entries are on the way!
