Opening the ODB Suggestion Box

Now that we've entered the second year of ODB's existence as the only Baylor blog on the SB Nation network, I've been putting a lot of thought into how I can improve this site going forward. That's where you come in.

If the answer is simply "show more pictures of cheerleaders," save your breath.  I'm way ahead of you.

Over the past year I've made several threads (here are two) asking those who frequent the site here for their input on how best to improve its content. I've also attempted, with varying degrees of success, to recruit additional contributors/writers passionate about Baylor athletics. Every time I do the latter, I get an encouraging response from people interested in helping out, most of whom eventually taper off for one reason or another. Such is life for a blog manned by volunteers who have their own hobbies, jobs, families, as their priorities. Just because this blog is one of my passions doesn't mean it will be for everyone else. It's basically inevitable that as seasons come and go and interest waxes and wanes, the cast of characters here-- all of whom, it should be made clear, have done incredible work that I appreciate and in no way mean to denigrate-- rotates accordingly. As always, if you are interested in trying your hand at the blogging business and contributing here in whatever capacity suits you, please let me know.

That said, my purpose tonight is not to convince you to do my job but rather to ask your help in telling me what you would like to see. If there is an area of the blog you feel un-or-underdeveloped, let me know. If there's something you'd like me to do that I'm not, likewise. If you have an idea for a feature or concept that I'm not doing, I'd love to hear it. This blog remains as much a work-in-progress now as it was the day this blog sprung into existence. Building and maintaining the community here is and will continue to be my highest priority, so I ask you now how best to achieve that goal.

Should the comments below strike you as too public a forum for your thoughts, feel free to email me. My address is this blog's name (all one word, obviously). Otherwise, let's talk in the comments about how to make ODB better.
