So, as people can see I have once again changed my blog design due to some people informing me of browser viewing issues with my previous design.  I like this design better as it is more organized clean and I find it easier to read.  Still working on tweaking it though.

But, here is what I have been wondering.  I really want to take this blog to a new level.  I love blogging and writing and when I don’t have crazy family emergencies or whatever I can blog just about everyday even though I know I haven’t in the past week just because I got swamped which honestly rarely happens.  So, I want to take this site/blog to another level.  Maybe expand it to add more things and features.  I hate becoming stagnant and I want to grow the site and blog to greater heights.  What things would you all like I Heart Diapers add or come to?  Offering products? User submitted photo gallery? More reviews? Etc?  What do people think would take this blog/site to the next level.  Diapers are a huge part of my life and I truly believe in spreading the word as best I can in a positive light.  So, I am open ears to what people would like to see this blog become or whether they want it to just stay as it is.  I would really appreciate any comments..

    I think a “User submitted photo gallery” is a bad idea. Just look at other sites that have User submitted photo galleries.

    More product reviews would be a nice addition. Since there are so many different types of diapers anymore.

    I would actually say no to a user submitted gallery. You’d have to police it so much. And you’d have to consider the fact that minors could post, which would attract the wrong sort of people.

    I honestly think that you should start with a few weeks of daily (Weekdays) updates. When you get into the rhythm of doing that, then consider adding features 🙂

    i would say more reviews.. i loved reading about your diaper reviews and your product reviews like diaper wipes and your onesie…

    I like your site and would love to see it take off. As Babymick21 mentioned, a good foundation would be regular posts (2 – 3 per week). Secondly, I really enjoy hearing about small situations that occur as a result of you being diapered in public. Maybe you think someone noticed the bulk or the crinkle sound. Maybe you had a big accident. Maybe your diaper leaked. write about your feelings and thoughts during these times and I’d be riveted. Also, since you seem comfortable enough with photos, have you considered video (keeping your face out of the shot of course)? Video commentary of a few minutes always adds spice to a blog.

    I think having user submitted photos would be a bad idea most of them are big hairy guys with just photos of there crotch which is nasty (Women might like it though lol), at least with your photos there tastefully done

    I think the problem many people would have had with your old design is they could have been using internet explorer which cant really handle new sites, Firefox is 100% faultless with new sites.

    i like the idea of bringing it to a new level. I think you should have pics and maybe videos that’s. but from you not from anyone else because as someone said before you have to police it.

    I am in agreement that a photo gallery is a BAD idea. Most pictures of people in diapers are god awful and really distasteful. Now there are some good pictures out there, done very tastefully and artistically. I think my diaper photos are different because I try to take them from a babies perspective… but I don’t like to post any of them. If i do all I get is requests to post more pictures from people who want to use them in a perverted manner… That is the problem, I don’t feel like there is a safe place to post my diaper related art.

    So a safe haven would be nice… and I am in full support in creating a positive environment surrounding diapers. I think your blog is a great start in this. Your blog is real, and comes from a real person, and that has power.

    I think what we need a a place were we can share more positive stories, yours and others, from people who need/like diapers. We need to share stories about how we overcame the stigmas.

    Personally, I am very curious to know some of the things you went though, and had to overcome in your childhood. Personally, I had a very difficult childhood, growing up as a very fem lesbian in a small town that was 90% anti-gay and 65% Mormon. I cant imagine what you went through as the only kid in your 2nd grand class who still needed diapers. children tend to be cruel to those who are different… and they really quickly develop a stigma against wearing diapers. I can’t image what a child who has to wear diapers feels… and I wouldn’t really know what to do as a parent.

    So, we need to share real stories about how we overcame these stigmas like this. We need to do it in an open environment. These don’t have to be all your stories, but if you find something that somebody else wrote which you think is great, please share it. Or allow us to submit some stories to be posted. I think we really need to learn from and support each other to overcome this social stigma against wearing diapers.

    by the way, keep up the good work 🙂

    I say you should stay just like you are. Post when you feel like it. If you try too hard to make it something else, it will become a burden. You have a good group of loyal followers, so just enjoy it and post what you feel.

    Offering products is an interesting idea. I have to agree with everyone about the user submitted photo gallery. It’s a good idea that rarely pans out in the “right” direction. Your reviews are nice, but usually I like hearing about your experiences and comparing them to my own.

    Hi

    I would just like to hear more about your life diapered – How you cope with day to day existence. Whilst it is not essential for me to be diapered it would certainly make things a lot easier but I can’t seem to get them to work that well for me and I’m always glad to change out of them as they quickly become uncomfortable. That’s why I would like to hear how a diaper pro manages!

    I think a user-submitted photo section would be GREAT – but, you should have to approve the pictures before before posting them for the general public. Then everyone’s happy. No gross pics of hairy disgusting men in dirty diapers. Nothing wrong with a dirty diaper picture, as long as the dirty part stays as just a brown lumpy stain in the seat, worst-case. Not into “scat”.

    Other than that, more posts like the “Woke up wet” post. That was excellent. I love that you included commentary on wetting and messing, because they’re both part of your reality and many others out here. It validates all of us when you talk about messing, especially, since it’s such a taboo subject, but, like I said, a daily reality for so many. It helps take the shame out of it; make it more mainstream and less embarrassing. Thank you for that, and everything else.

    I think you should touch on more issues/stereotypes that the AB/DL community has to deal with. It would be good to hear your take on them.

    I think User submitted photo gallery is great for your blog.

    I like the idea of more reviews, you seem to do very thorough reviews.

    I would hear more of your personal stories and experiences wearing diapers every day. Like stories about growing up with diapers, what your friends did when they first found out, any nearly embarrassing experiences, or general funny stories related to your diapers and life. There are a lot of pic sites already out there, but what I come to your blog for is the personal stories.

    This new layout is ok, but I really enjoyed the old layout. It had more of a relaxed feel. The new layout seems much more business like, which to me is not as welcoming. Keep up the fun and interesting posts!

    User-submitted (edited by you) true stories would be more interesting and fit the site better than user-submitted photos. I think of this more as a site about your lifestyle than a typical photo site.

    I agree so much with what’s been said about cheesy or plain gross photos. I like Adrian’s writing and point of view, too. Apart from lots more great writing, what about a photo competition on a different theme each month (anonymous is ok), eg ‘diaper and onesie’, ‘ready for bed’, ‘daydreaming’, ‘time out’… Maybe between us all here we can raise the quality of abdl pics. (Bet there’s some good basic tips on lighting etc out there, too.) Short stories too? We could all write 100 words on eg ‘the dream’, or beginning “i opened my eyes and…” and Adrian could pick the winners. Just some ideas.

    Id say ignore the jerks, 🙂
