I think of life as a journey – a process – one in which I’ll never reach perfection, but part of the challenge is continuously trying to learn, striving to become a better person; a better mother, a better daughter, friend, boss, leader, follower, and a better partner. That’s also how I think of TownSquareBuzz.com. (TSB)
As a business owner, the foremost thought in my mind daily is “How can we do better?” It frustrates me to no end when, like today, our Daily Buzz eNewsletter is sent out and, because of a glitch in our system, readers can’t open the top story! (This is now fixed and thank you to those of you who called or emailed to let us know – we do want to hear from you!) I hate that readers sometimes have difficulties when posting articles – believe me, we want the process to be easy!
Do you know about our social networking capabilities? When you register you can pull in your tweets, or streams from Digg, Flickr, and more. Go to “My Dashboard”, then “Your social networks..” and choose “Edit your web currents”. You can also add your links to your Twitter, Facebook (and more) accounts and push your TSB posts to all of your social networking pages with the click of one button! It’ll all come together in one place. Cool, huh?
I’d like to be able to snap my fingers a la Samantha on Bewitched and have perfection today – this minute! Then I remind myself that even the giants like Apple have hurdles. They launched the first model of the iPhone and we all complained that we couldn’t copy and paste. They continued their fine-tuning their technology and today we have a better model than the first. (If only we could now fix the dropped calls problem!) I remind myself that if we wait until something is “perfect” we will never launch anything new – we will always be waiting until we fix one more thing!
I realize that I can’t update our readers as to each and every detail of what we are working on behind the scenes, but that being said, you can trust that we are working every single day to make TSB better. We do have more exciting things to come, so I hope you will stay tuned and stay connected!
We love to hear from our readers who have suggestions as to how we can do just that. My staff and I are immersed in it up to our eyeballs daily, so we value your input. How can we do better? What do you want to read about? What would you like to see us add to the site? TSB is YOUR site – I’m just the custodian. It’s YOUR voice, your conversation, your connection, your life and your community – your Hometown Homepage!
