Over 2 years ago, I registered the name Extreme-Exercises.com and started my online body weight exercise journey. The site quickly gained steam and after about 6 months of growth I decided to rebrand and name the site AShotofAdrenaline.net.
I was super excited to launch the site and knew there were bugs to work out. Before this happened however, I thought it would be fine to pay the remaining balance for my designer.
Well, guess what happened?
She vanished. The incentive to stick around was gone so she disappeared too. (Kind of like fitness right? ;))
With my site 99% of the way done I launched anyway.
Almost immediately I noticed the effects.
The comment fields didn’t work right. The site looked bad on some browsers. And the internal database was built very poorly. And these were just a few of the problems.
I hired another designer to help with some fixes but we knew that at some point we’d have to rebuild.
SOA has still grown despite a foundation built on sand and now reaches between 1,500-2,500 unique visitors a day.
We have come to the point where we can’t keep growing on a weak foundation.
A rebuild must be done. And I need YOUR help.
I am taking the opportunity now to revamp the site and add additional features that have been recommended to me over 2 years. I am also giving you an opportunity now to voice your thoughts on ways to improve the site.
Below are my top features that I want to change but I want to hear your thoughts too.
-Adding a search bar – So you can find workouts and exercises a lot easier.
-Changing the background/font color in the article section – So you can read the content easier.
-Make it easier to navigate the archive section – Right now, the archive section is very hard to navigate. I’ll be making it much easier to find old articles.
-Adding Disqus comments – This will make it easier to leave your thoughts under posts and discuss topics with others.
My friends, take an investment in the future of A Shot of Adrenaline and recommend ways to improve it. Look around this site and think about what you have seen on other sites that you like. What would help you want to stay here on SOA longer and what would help you achieve your goals more effectively?
What would you like to see in the New A Shot of Adrenaline Website? What would help improve SOA?
