Last week I wrote a blog post about reviving BigBlueBall. If you read that post, I share my Google Analytics data going back to our peak in 2006, when we routinely had over half a million pageviews a month.
A lot has changed since back then, but I still think there is something to be shared here at BigBlueBall, and I'm committed to carving out four hours a week to see what I can do.
I'm not 100% sure where this is going, but my goal is to see if I can turn that curve back around. When I shared the blog post, it was interesting that I got responses on the blog itself, but even more on LinkedIn and Facebook. One of the recurring questions was “will it still be about instant messaging?”
This much I can say for sure: it won't be about instant messaging. It's just not something I'm passionate about, and frankly while there are new-ish IM clients out there (WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, etc.) it's not worthy of a lot of time and attention. At least, not MY time and attention.
So to start with, I've taken the thousands and THOUSANDS of old forum discussions and moved them under a new Archive category. They are still there for a little organic Google juice (whatever that's worth today), and for nostalgic trips down Memory Lane. But I don't expect any new activity there.
That leaves the forums with four categories focused on topics where we are all looking to improve:
- Wealth – Probably going to rename this to Money.
There's a fifth forum called “Community” (you're looking at it) for general discussion that doesn't fit any of the other categories.
Any questions? Any suggestions or feedback? Lemme know!March 18, 2020 at 11:40 am #179696Jeff HesterKeymaster
So I've renamed “Health” to Wellness, and “Wealth” to Money.
“Home” is a confusing category name because it most often is used to take people to the homepage of a website, but I haven't come up with a better descriptor yet.
