What next at Grows on You?
As the question mark suggests, this isn’t another announcement straight after the redesign – we’re asking for your ideas.
We’ve noticed people are using Grows on You in different ways – not always how we thought you would ;o) but all interesting and useful. For us to continue improving Grows on You we’d really like to hear what would make it better for you.
We have some ideas ourselves but you’re the people that matter. This blog was sparked by something David and Spritz brought up in David’s blog on how to create a personal garden journal at your local library. We didn’t think people would want to delete photos which shows why we really value getting feedback on what you want from the site.
I also noticed that AndrewR has created his own database of the plants in his garden. Andrew’s ‘my garden’ section is fantastic, but could we make Grows on You the place to store all the information that’s in the database? Do you also keep a list of plants?
Those are two ideas and if you don’t mind spending some time on it we’d love to hear your opinions. Here are some questions to get you thinking…
How do you use GoY? (e.g. as a place to record plants, to store photos, to get inspiration, all of these, something else?)
Which parts of the site do you use?
Why and how do you use them?
Which parts don’t you use?
What needs improving or simplifying?
What should we definitely not change?
What would make using the site more useful, more interesting, or just easier for you personally?
Please feel free to comment on existing parts of the site or suggest new features, and tell us what is good as well as bad. I can’t promise we’ll do everything but I promise we’ll listen.
You can add your thoughts as comments to this blog or send us an email if you’re feeling a bit shy.
I hope you’re all well and looking forward to Christmas!!
