What I’ve Been Working on

Posted by Steve on December 18 at 01:00 pm

I know I’ve been a little quiet on the blog lately, but it’s been for good reason. I’ve been working on some new features for the Lima Beads web site, and I wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of the things we’ve got planned. We want to start off 2009 on the right foot, so we welcome your feedback and comments!

Start a conversation

One thing we’ve noticed while observing everyone interact on the blog is… everyone likes talking! And one of the recurring topics is the latest Fresh Picks that people are creating. So, we decided to make it easier to chat about the picks. Coming very soon… the ability to comment on Fresh Picks, right from their individual pages!

More Fresh Enhancements…

The last big enhancement to our Fresh Picks section came earlier this year when we let you design and share your own picks with the world. In addition to the new commenting feature above, we’re also going to make it easier to discover more Fresh Picks. With literally thousands of picks, it makes them hard to digest (yes, we hear you!). We’ve got some improvements planned to make it it easier to find inspiration.

It’s all about YOU!

2009 has some other great things planned, and one thing is for certain: we’ll be focusing on YOU! This means better ways to share your thoughts, ideas, projects, and pictures. It means more ways to interact with the Lima community of beaders. A better shopping experience. More ways to save. The list goes on… We’re excited, and we hope you are, too!

Finally, we thrive on your feedback. We’d love to hear what you think!

    Steve – You, sir, are the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making “LB”‘s site so very much fun, so easy to navigate and such a wonderful experience, wheather I’m buying or not. My day is not complete unless I check the site at the very least once a day.

    Your new improvements/enhancements sound super, and I can’t wait.

    I love your ideas for new fresh picks enhancements! It’s great that you listen to your customers and actually take action! I, too, don’t miss a day visiting the blog and website–whether I’m buying or not. I think it might be an addiction….

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one who “checks in” at least once a day! lol Can’t wait for the new improvements to the site, but how much better could it possibly get? :)

    I absolutely love this site. I am very pleased when I receive the beads, they are all beautiful and they come so fast I love it. You have great deals on the bead machine and who doesn’t love free beads for lunch on Tuesday’s. Can’t get enough of beading. Thank you!!!!

    Love the Fresh Pick comment area Steve. I am curious, is is also possible to upload images of projects made with a fresh pick? —It would be interesting to see what people have done with some of these…
    I think so anyway.

    I’m new here but am loving the looks of this site. I, too, would like to see some projects made with the fresh picks. I’m working on my list for my first order from you!

    Thanks for your thoughts, everyone! To answer your question, kohl, when you’re commenting directly on a Fresh Pick, you can choose up to 3 pictures to send along with your comment. They can be projects you’ve made, your inspiration, etc.

    K Schaefer, welcome! We hope that 2009 will bring some additional ways to share your projects and design ideas. Stay tuned!

Add your thoughts!
