So we went from 2012 to 2013, and GFF is still running smoothly with a good frequency of articles and videos and lots of readers and viewers
Some years I do it, some years I don't: write a state of the GFF nation blog post.
Well, the news section is new. Christmas a couple of years ago I made the video section, which has been extremely successful, so I thought I'd try my luck with some new stuff this Christmas too. I had long wanted somewhere to put the different happenings and events in the community, not to mention product news. I programmed a small system to handle news, integrated into our image system, the keywords and whatnot.
I'm not expecting anything like the success of the videos (that will be hard to beat with anything), but it seems to have taken nicely off this first week.
So if you have news, let me know. I now have a place to put it.
Adapted front page
The main page has also gotten a small overhaul. Nothing big, but since there is now four sections with potential new content: articles, videos, news and this blog, I thought it would be nice with a so called slider that presents more content in the same space, fading between each section's new content.
It stops when you put your mouse over it, and you can manually shift between the blocks.
So what will come?
I honestly don't know!
Tonnes of articles of course. I keep on writing them and get more article ideas than I could write even if I did this full time, which I don't. GFF is still just a hobby project that's done in mine and other people's spare time. Suggestions are welcome.
There will be more merchandize in our store. Maybe a cap, more things with flies on them. Whatever I can think of. Suggestions are welcome.
I have my old idea list of “semi-dead” ideas. Some might spring to life.
I have thought of making a crowd funding page to recoup some of the expenses. Don't know if that will ever happen. Sometimes it's easier to just shell the money. Suggestions are welcome.
But no matter what: The Global FlyFisher will just get better, larger and hopefully more popular.
