Just a brief note to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!
Thanks so much for your company in 2017; I’ve really enjoyed bringing you news, reviews, interviews and videos on all the latest reissues and box sets. I especially value the interaction – via blog comments, or social media – with SDE readers, who I consider to be some of the most passionate and knowledgeable music fans out there and a very friendly bunch! (sadly not the norm online). So thanks again – this blog really wouldn’t be the same without you.
I’m very excited about the next 12 months and hope to bring you lots of improvements to make your SDE experience even better. I’m working on the plan right now, but feel free to suggest ideas or items on you ‘wish list’ in the comments below. I know many of you would like to see the ability to edit comments for example, and have the option to ‘skip down’ to the very latest comments without having to scroll down (especially important on a mobile/cell phone).
The goal for 2018 is to introduce more functionality and interactivity – give SDE readers a way to leave feedback beyond just leaving comments. For example, one simple idea is three buttons below each product news item: “Do you intend to buy this reissue?’ YES. NO. MAYBE. When you click on the appropriate button, you’d see the percentages and can gauge instantly whether people share your own view or not.
For now, do have a great new year. Go safe and I wish you a prosperous and healthy 2018.
