Your Opinion Counts

You are never happy with what you have!

Ain’t that the truth.

For the past four months, we have been taking a critical look at Eye On Annapolis. While we have seen incredible growth, we needed to be sure that the experience for our readers was as pleasant as possible. As we looked over the old site, we felt it was too cluttered, too confusing to navigate and did not have a “sharp” feel to it. We also wanted to implement a few new features including:

  • A permanent slot for videos–one of the most popular categories
  • A shift to a two column format to cut back on the “busy-ness” of the site
  • Greater integration of images
  • Easier to understand menus

Tonight, we tweaked and modified and here you have the rough draft of the new version of Eye On Annapolis!

Now, we need your help. Please take a look around and leave a comment to let us know what you think. We can modify the color scheme, logos, and much more. So, let us hear your ideas. And please don’t limit it to design. If you want to see more posts of a particular type (or less), let us know. Are we missing something? Do you want to help and contribute?

We do have some more work to do and you will see some more subtle changes over the next few days, but what we really want is YOUR opinion about YOUR website. And as always, thank you for helping us grow as swiftly as we have!
