During the last couple of months, we’ve been really active here at WP Mayor, maintaining a near daily post rate about all things WordPress. The visitor stats have been growing steadily and I’m very happy with the audience this site has.
Still, I’m not entirely satisfied with the way things stand, and today I’m turning to you for feedback.
See, in my eyes the site is facing a bit of an identity crisis right now, at least from my perspective.
WP Daily is steadily becoming the go to site for WordPress news. It’s a great site, with a beautiful design and a strong team behind it, not to mention an army of guest posters who ensure that there is great content to dish out on a daily basis.
When I think about WordPress plugins, I think about PippinsPlugins, another amazing piece of work by Pippin Williamson, probably my favourite WordPress developer at the moment. The tutorials he creates are absolutely top notch, and membership to his website is highly recommended, you will definitely learn a lot.
WPBeginner has been firmly established as the leading WordPress site for beginners looking to take their first steps with WordPress.
The list goes on, I can think of a couple more sites that have nailed a WordPress niche successfully. It’s great to have all these resources within the WordPress community, but it’s also got me thinking about the future and purpose of WP Mayor.
As it stands, I think WP Mayor is very much a generalist WordPress resource site, pretty much nothing is off topic here if it has to do with WordPress.
I’m not sure if this is good for the site or not.
Do we have a loyal audience or do people come through from Google for a particular plugin review or news item, and never visit again?
Are we fulfilling a need in the community, or should we specialise in a particular area?
What are your thoughts?
I would really appreciate to hear your feelings and ideas. Please be open, I’d like to know how you look at WP Mayor. Do you think we should focus on a particular niche? What can we do to make this site better?
Over to you!
