It is soon going to be 5 years since LiveFromALounge started its journey from being the first Indian blog about miles and points, to becoming an almost comprehensive portal to inform you on an almost daily basis about the ongoing happenings in the world of loyalty programs, aviation, passenger experience and government policy…amongst other things that could affect your travels, if you are a business or leisure traveller.
We’ve come a long way, and the current design really does not hold very well in my opinion for us to be able to disseminate information in the way we’d like to present it to you. As readers and the happenings in the market become evolved, we need to evolve too. And so, we are planning an overhaul pretty soon. While I have my own ideas, I’d also like to hear from my readers on pain points and their suggestions about how to make things better for you around here.
Technologically, we still stay the same a bit under the hood. With BoardingArea investing a massive amount of time and effort in reorganizing things at the backend, we are faster and snappier than earlier in terms of delivering contents over to you. WordPress continues to remain one of the most effective platforms for Content Management, and I am also committed to that as a platform.
A few things I’d love to hear your thoughts on, apart from everything else you think is required, are here:
Yes, the Journey is still the Reward. It always will be. But I do feel the need for a new logo. Something that can be introduced on more surfaces and stands on its own. What do you guys think?
I frequently try and answer many questions that are put across to me. However, I do notice readers helping each other out as well. So how to organise Q&A in a searchable format and help it thread even better?
I love bringing my experiences to you, but I suck at organizing it. How do you recommend we go about organizing the trip reports?
I try and answer as many questions posted in the comments, however, the current static system seems to be growing a bit out of hand. Do you think there is a better way out there? I know about Disqus, but does something else work as well?
Time is short however, because I’m trying to kick off the reorganization project this week along with the tech and design team at BoardingArea. So, look forward to hearing all your inputs and hopefully putting them in action shortly!
