Are there any suggestions and volunteers for an overhaul of the nextbigfuture website ?
The User Interface needs to be overhauled.
Currently the site resides on blogger.com.
If a good custom template could be created that might resolve some issues quickly.
Ideally the URLs of the old articles should be preserved. Although if there were big gains from not keeping the old URLs so that could be considered.
Migrating to another platform can also be considered.
The goal would be to increase readership and improving the experience while maintaining or increasing revenue.
Help and suggestions would also be helpful for improving the social media (facebook, twitter, google+) experience as well.
Being able to split the article feeds by major topic would also be good.
Another idea would the viability of a kickstarter for the redesign and to set up an ad free, subscription option.
