With the Aniblog Tourney coming up, it was natural to stop blogging long enough to breathe once or twice, and to consider what I can do to make the site better and more user-friendly. With that in mind, I hope you'll use the comments to give me some suggestions on what you'd like to see on LiA going forward.
Let me say up front, please don't say "Speed!". I already know load times are crucial and I'm doing everything I can to improve them in the short-term given the constraints of Blogger - and looking as various long-term solutions, too. So given that I already have that at #1 with a bullet on the to-do list, what I'm looking for are suggestions in areas like design, site layout, post format, images, etc. Let me know what you think is working really well, and what you'd like to see change. As well, I'd love to hear about any features you'd like to see added - a visit to 10 anime blogs will reveal a blizzard of chatboxes, video windows, news feeds... And you can't use all of them - so if there's one you'd like to see here, let me know!
Obviously I can't promise to act on every idea - and some opinions are going to directly conflict, anyway. But I will give every suggestion serious consideration. I appreciate your continued support over the last year as readership and participation have grown exponentially - now help me take it to the next level.
