It's time to be thinking about goals for 2017. From time to time I get valuable input from readers on what I should be doing to improve the PFRE blog. Here are some things on my list for 2017:
- Make the PFRE blog mobile friendly: This is a top priority. Scott and Wayne told me clearly recently that I should be "eating my own dog food" and getting the blog mobile friendly!
- Look at alternatives for Flickr to run the monthly contests: Yahoo and Flickr may be in financial peril so I've been looking at alternatives for some time. I've had more than one reader confused by Flickr. Cristi, my WordPress mechanic has suggested some plugins that could integrate the contests into the blog better.
- Do things to engage and attract more experienced real estate photographers: My primary goal for the blog is to help people get started and be successful in real estate photography. This may naturally result in some people drifting away as they become more experienced. At the same time, there are many very experienced people who regularly contribute and provide a great diversity of opinion. While several people have brought this issue up, I'm not sure it's an issue that I need to focus on. What do you think?
I'd be interested in reader input on what needs to be improved here on the PFRE blog and what things you like. Don't be shy, I have a thick skin.
