Just found this site - very nice. Hopefully some of you guys n girls will be able to offer some userful advice (especially if you've built your own community site already).
Some of my work collegues and myself (we work in a small IT departmen) found ourselves becoming disallusioned with our relationship with business users, so created a website to let off steam. Originally it was just for us, but we've realised that there are other IT staff out there who feel the same, and go through the same stuff. So...
I installed and configured a CMS system (php fusion) on my PHP and Mysql hosting, and started adding articles and news, custom content, and a lot of silly stuff :lol:
I've done the usual submissions to search engines, but what we probably need to do is find suitable places to swap links with, directories, any anything anyone can think of?
Anyone found writing to magazines or online mags a way to get noticed?
Please take a look at our site; << url snipped >> see what we've got, how we're trying to grow it (35 members now, 2/3rds from outside our company).
Any advice appreciated - sign up if you like the tone (very surreal / angry / silly / fun).
