Lately I've been chatting to the various cup companies, which is a bit of a new development. It might be just me, but I get the impression that cups are on the verge of becoming fairly mainstream. I've certainly seen traffic here climb steadily, there's a profusion of new companies and products with a wider variety of choice, and it seems like everyone is doing good business. Mooncup are advertising on the London Underground and terrestrial TV for heaven's sake!
This is really exciting and it's making me fidgety. I've decided to put some more of my time into this than I'm already doing and I have a few projects planned:
- Turn the menstrual cups website into a really good, thorough, browsable resource
- Revamp this community's userinfo
- Sort out discount/affiliate links with all the cup companies
- Start promoting the website/community
Well, I'm prepared to put the work in, but I also need your input on some of these to help me choose what direction I go in.
Firstly, how do you feel about companies posting here directly? Assuming they clearly identify themselves as such.
And what kind of setup would you prefer to arrange with them? 'Both simultaneously' would be ideal of course, but given the choice would you prefer...
If by some miracle we actually get money out of this, what would you like me to do with it? Assuming expenses like website hosting are already covered.
Are you interested in helping in any capacity?
If you're feeling a general desire to help but none of the above seems like you, then I would like to say... you already are helping. It's absolutely you guys who keep the community the awesome place that it is. Please keep on showing newbies the ropes, starting interesting discussions, and generally making this a fun place to hang out. Without that, this entire post would be pointless. It's appreciated by your mod as well as the posters you help!
Thank you all :)
