It has a been a great year to be part of Bronco Nation. After a strange transition and establishing this site, I can say I could not have asked for more this year. During the year the site had a wide array of visitors. The biggest swell being during the week before and during the Oregon game. Not to say the site was without Bronco visitors as Bronco Nation received Bronco Nation N.O.W. with open arms.
The Bronco Nation Podcast once again grew its subscriber base. I of course could not take full credit as Buck Rogers and Drew Roberts brought that little something extra to the show. I also expanded the list of guest to include actual former Broncos and opposing school guests.
As Bronco Nation N.O.W. heads into its second year I want to let you know of some minor changes and solicit reader input. Back when I was with BroncoNation.net I found myself constantly working on site design and less on bringing more content.
With Bronco Nation N.O.W. things changed quite a bit as I put together a simple web design with a little of the hold overs. As the year progressed design wise I have made little modifications, other than some information in the side bar and a new logo. This past Sunday I one more logo change, which is a simpler design. Podcast listeners will get access to new Bronco Nation Podcast Album Art. Sometimes it is the simple things in life that you enjoy. These logos come courtesy of a Bronco Country Poster, GhostTown56.
Content wise Lace Banacheck has joined the Bronco Nation N.O.W. blog team. He has written quite a bit of articles. I hope to continue to add writers as the site grows, but alas I lack funds to pay anybody. However, I welcome anybody, who wishes to write for this site an open invitation. If you would like to join the BNN team just simply send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you set up.
I also added twitter to the site, allowing subscribers to be alerted when a post is made to the site. To follow BNN on twitter, simply follow us at http://twitter.com/BroncoNationNOW. In addition, many thanks to the sites’ sponsor, The Blue and Orange Store, which provided Bronco Nations fans a way to save on Bronco Gear on their website.
I am also thinking about changing up the Podcast format to shorten the show in half. One show to talk about the previous week’s game and a show to focus on the upcoming game. I am also looking into doing a weekly WAC and College Football recap show. With that said below is a poll give me a little feedback on these ideas.
Finally, I am looking into doing a weekend call-in show. A Post Post-Game show. The idea of having fans sound off the day after. I typically can’t wait to talk Bronco Football the Monday after a game and get all the feedback from everyone. So here is another poll to give me feedback, would like to have an Internet live show. A fan free for all sort of speak.
Thanks for all the views and here is to another great Bronco Football Season, I hope to continue to build on the success of the site and bring Bronco Nation more and more content. Go Broncos!!!
