Dom and I are trying to fine-tune the site, to make it interesting – and valuable – to as many readers as possible. We’d like your input. What kinds of articles/topics do you prefer? Is there something you’d like to see here that’s not?
Any suggestions for categories – or changes to the site layout?
Do you have any problems accessing the site? Posting? Does it load slowly for you? Is there anything about it that could be made more user-friendly?
I have a friend who is a professional mechanic – and owns his own repair shop. I’ve been thinking about asking him to contribute articles, maybe even do some live (or at least interactive) “Q&A” – giving people who come here the opportunity to ask a pro car repair questions/advice.
Would that be of interest/value?
Also, is anyone out there interested in becoming our “Hero Cop” editor? What we need is a person who can regularly (ideally, daily) post links/excerpts from news stories about Hero Cops running amok. The editor would be free to add his own commentary, too.
Finally, I’d like to ask a favor – of all of you. We could really use your help getting the word out. If you could mention/recommend EPautos to your friends, colleagues and families – forward links to articles you read here that you like – and so on – it would be immensely appreciated.
One of the major obstacles we’re trying to surmount is increasing the visibility/prominence of the site. It’s been a real challenge for us because of the Google shivving and because we are not Facebook friendly nor do we “Tweet” (god help me).
Maybe that’s dumb of us – ox-headed of me, to be fair to Dom.
But I despise Facebook and all it stands for; the data-mining, the vacuity, the herding of people onto a digital feedlot (and you know where that leads). As for Twitter: I’m a middle-aged man; I don’t “Tweet” – and never will.
Anyhow, please chime in with your thoughts, observations and anything else that comes to mind.
By the way: We’ve made a little progress on Donations. See the thermometer on the top right of the main page. We are at 55 percent of goal with a week left in the month. Both fingers crossed, we’ll have a good week and make up the remaining 45 percent – so we don’t end the month on a sour note and have to begin March in the red.
Thanks, as always –
