Recently I’ve had a fair amount of feedback from people regarding the way I wrote things on the site and the attitude I have towards carriers, manufacturers or whoever and that it needs to stop or change. I agree, wholeheartedly. If you’re interested in that, keep reading this post.
When I started Ausdroid back in March, it was just a little hobby site I decided to create over the school holidays with the help of a few mates online. I never expected the site to last or ever receive a sustainable amount of visits. Evidently, I was wrong, very wrong. Ever since March most of my posts have been from my point of view, as I never saw this as a site as a source of real news for people, I just had a bit of fun with it, throwing in a few bad jokes and sarcasm on the way.
Now Ausdroid has grown passed that stage, and I need to take a bit more of a professional attitude towards the site and towards you, the real Android lovers, who want your daily fix of news. I may not be a journalist, I mean hey I’m a high school student for goodness sakes, but I’m certainly going to change the attitude towards the carriers, manufacturers and anyone else. I have nothing against them; it has only been a bit of anger here and there for different things, once again a personal view. I love what these guys do for Android in this country, each carrier have their own cool innovations and really push the hardware.
To stop just my constant point of view coming across, I’ve brought in the help of Chris who’s been doing some of the coolest reviews I’ve read and I want that to continue. I also want you guys to have more input into the site, and that will be in the form of a new site/layout that I aim to launch by years end, that I really hope will make it easier for you to view the news and take part in some of the best discussions about Android in the country.
So what’s really going to happen here is my attitude towards people & companies will change, we’ll start afresh with a more professional mindset, though we won’t leave behind that laid back nature that makes us Aussies who we are. We’ll continue to learn new things as we grow. Thanks for sticking with us guys, it means a lot to everyone that plays a part of what is Ausdroid.
We’d love to hear your constructive input for what we can do to make the site better 🙂
