So, I am proposing an idea to maybe add a little more personality to I Heart Diapers and want to know what everyone thinks.  I am thinking about adding a feature to this blog that will basically give you your own profile essentially and you would be able to interact a little more with the other visitors and members of the site.  There are multiple directions I can take it in and add a lot of more interactive features with it.  First and foremost though, this site will always be a blog and I want to keep it that way and not turn it into some huge social network.  But, I thought if people had their own profiles and were able to maybe interact with others in and around the site in certain ways in may benefit some people in the ABDL world as well as those that are incontinent?  Thoughts? Suggestions?

Also, as promised, I updated my review of the Unique Wellness Brief since I had a bad batch…you can check out the updated Unique Wellness Brief Review.

Also, just as a reminder, if you are still looking for a Invite for that points earning site since it is invite only…just let me know!

Please share your thoughts with me on this profile thing and all that jazz and let me know what you all think of it!.

    Nice review on the Unique Wellness Diaper, Adrian, thanks. I am indeed seeking an appropriate upper-middle thickness diaper to handle work situations where I have a hard time hiding my fave’s (Bambinos). Keep up the good work here as its important to me, at least, to find this “happy medium” for discretion and capacity.

    Now, as for the addition of profiles and such, I do think it’s a big plus. Interaction amongs others is what its all about. ‘Ya never know who you’re gonna meet, where! The whole point of a blog is to share valued opinions with others which is what sets this blog apart from nonsensical blogs galore. I just want to know what a diapered person needs to know to have a good life.

    Keep it up and tell Peter hello too.

    The more I read your blog , the more I’m impressed with you young lady.
    You always show a great deal of thought and intelligence in what you write. This is greatly appreciated from my AB/DL point of view where many of them (AB/DL) can’t spell much better than my wife’s second graders.
    I agree with Glen that profiles would make in interesting addition to your site.

    This site is probably the most, i dont know the word for it, wholesome? maybe respectful. comforting! this site is probably the most comforting people both incontinent/abdl/whatever is related community. it seems that with you topics adrian, and just the respect of the people who visit, that this site is one where people would love to get to know each other more. myself included, who is finding that this diapered life this is not a habit im going to be able to kick soon so i might as well embrace it 🙂
    I just hope if you do decide to do that, that you are able to prevent it from becomming a big social network that eventually goes creepy. I would hate to see this site lose what makes it special.
    Maybe concider having it invite only? Speaking of which, could i get an invite to that site you mentioned please? i like free things haha

    Hi. Having profiles on your blog site sounds interesting enough and you could very well have your hands full if you do this. I don’t have a profile on any other ab/dl site. Yeah also to busy with work that I don’t have a myspace or facebook page. Just don’t have the time. I just don’t feel that comfortable doing that even so I read open blogs on say diaperspace for example. I think I said something in another topic not to long ago on your blog that this is the cleanest site around and hope it stays that way should you begin to allow profiles to your loyal readers to talk more on all your topics of interest that you post and our repies to your topics.

    On one hand, profiles would be kinda neat, allowing us to share more with you and others.

    On the other hand, you’ll need to maintain ultimate control over what gets diseminated to whom, and have the capacity to delete or sequester objectionable profiles.

    I would be torn, and I would seek out opinions from others who also run sites that the AB/DL communities frequent.

    We’ve all encountered trolls and flame wars before. I believe that you, with your unique wisdom and insights, could prolly find ways to avoid them. Not to mention that I haven’t really seen any nitwits posting here.

    Second idea. Would like to present my views of UK diapers.

    Profiles could be a good idea, if we want to share information about ourselves. They can make us feel like part of a community. But I would keep it simple, like names, status as AB/DL, links to websites/blogs. I wouldn’t recommend having us post anything, because this is your blog and we are all here to listen to your thoughts.
    If i have something I really want to say, I will say it on my own blog. I wouldn’t want to distract from what you have to say.

    that is my two cents 🙂 in the end it is up to you

    Jlks16 has an excellent point! We’re here because we enjoy your company, Adrian. I like to think of this as an informal dinner table around which we can find friends, chitchat about whatever…. With you as an excellent hostess, guiding our conversation.

    This is your blog, and simply giving us the ability to interact with you in this medium is great. I enjoy seeing that there really are intelligent, thoughtful, considerate, compassionate, and wise people who can communicate without malice here.

    I probably would enter a profile here, but I would keep it very simple, which would probably raise more questions than it would answer. I don’t Facebook hardly at all, nothing on Myspace, no Twitter, none of that iEgo stuff really appeals to me. I just enjoy having found your blog, where I can read interesting and entertaining thoughts. Thank you!

    It’s your blog Adrian. I enjoy your the thought you put in your articles and your candid view on the topics you choose to discuss. I like the idea of profiles and iteracting with others. However, having us put content on your blog I feel would detract from you personality.

    I totally agree with ABRay, if you can find an efficient way to moderate the interactions between members then i say go for it! (plus, you can always try it for a “trial period” and see how things go.)
    Random thought, have you ever considered creating some type of Iphone app or interface to your website or something? just a thought, i think it’d be cool to have an iheartdiapers app! but yeah, if there is a members interaction thingy around here then sign me up i’ll give it a try

    while I agree with the profile idea i don’t believe anyone mentioned the possibility or potential of people putting false profiles up. I.E. men putting profiles on your site as women. Regardless of how wholesome or respectful any site is the internet world is too vast and these people pop up. I think more personality would be you having to approve profiles so that people are valid as they say they are and maybe only one profile per IP if that can be done to keep peope from cloning multiple. I’ve seen so many of these exploited in chats and places like diaperspace. It would be nice to allow others some bloggage time as Amanda said she could review european diapers which we in the states cannot readily get our hands on :). not to mention our potential asian brothers and sisters who also get diapers we don’t have access to.
    The possibilities are endless but if we keep it anti flaming, anti cloning, anti falsifying then I believe you can maintain things respectfully while going in the direction you want.
    Regards,
    chad

    JKS16 – Your right! Let’s keep it… As it could turn from a blog to a comunity.
    Byes!

    I am no attorney. but we all know of private organizations (the boy scouts) and individuals who were forced to include people into their organization or group via the courts. they weren’t invited or wanted there. remember its not the rights of the whole that always triumph. it is the whining victims, the decedent of society.
    if you decide to do this it will be a success as this is a very popular site for alot of people. just be careful. i would have an attorney draft your user rights just to cover your bases. then you could decide who you want on your blog and who you don’t. you have to maintain comlete control.

    Hi there,

    I just wanted to say hello, introduce myself to the community. I’m K, live in Kansas City and am a DL, might be AB sometimes…enjoy the helplessness feeling associated with diapers.

    I love this blog and have been reading a while, but always too nervous to post!

    Great to meet you all.

  16. Cwick March 30, 2010 at 10:06 am - Reply

    Welcome K! No need to be nervous we all seem cool and accepting here. 🙂

  17. TinLizzie March 30, 2010 at 10:21 am - Reply

    Howdy, K! I know how you feel about posting- It took me a long time to feel comfortable posting anywhere, too. I’ve not yet come completely “out-of-the closet” yet, as I still use an online moniker rather than my real name.

    Adrian’s blog is a good place to start, as she seems to have a polite and well-informed following.

    I’ve not been here long, but I’ve read a lot of Adrian’s posts and related comments. She has been insightful, compassionate, and fun, and so have many of her readers.

    Welcome!

    I have always enjoyed your thoughts and would like your blog contain only your thoughts and the occasional thoughts of others that you invite or approve.

    I think a profile should be brief yet encompassing about the person. Either a moniker or avatar. Showing one’s Full Name should be at the discretion of the profiler. Age, sex, general location like city and state along with an e-mail address. Some radio buttons No more than 8 or 10. Like “bed wetter”,AB/ADL,Incontinent to name a few. No room for lengthy writings or diatribes. Maybe a quote.

    Just my thoughts.

    Bill

    Bill raises a good point, too. Following the KISS principle is probably best, and may help keep potential hot-headed abusers from egregious behavior. Should people become interested in one another, there are many other forums out there that can help deepen relations.

    I’m givin’ you props, gurl! You’ve already got a great thing going here. Were I you, making small, incremental changes may be best. One thing none of us would want to see happen is to have 50,000 overbearing males harassing 50 women.

    I would like to meet you and Peter I live in Raleigh, too.

    If you would like to meet for coffee sometime that would be great.

    It seems to me that you are both thoughtful and considerate people that have other interests than just diapers and are whole individuals that like to wear diapers.

    I really enjoy all aspects of cloth diapers and disposables.

    I like to cook and entertain and am especially attracted to ladies. There is more, but I would like to say that privately.
