A Proper Thank You
It's a new year! (And new month i guess but that's less cool) This is the time where we get to reflect back on the last year and everything good and bad that happened within it. 2017 was the year where we were lucky enough to find some really amazing members of our audience. It was the year we were able to put a focus on content production and that showed with the increase in quality and consistency of our shows. Listed below are some of the achievements that we as a community can feel most proud of.
Things that make you go pride.
Orange You Glad I didn't say we should be better? because we should be better.
While we did make many strides toward being better this year it is important to talk about what we didn't as well. There were many times this past year where we were not consistent with releasing episodes and this year we aim to improve in that department. In 2017 we also had some major trouble with keeping our audio quality consistent. For this we have invested hundreds of dollars into new equipment for the studio to help solve all our our audio based woes. Another major issue we will be addressing is website aesthetic and functionality. To better serve our content we have recently done an overhaul on our site to add or change how everything works. We are still in the early stages but we plan to continually make improvements as we work through the new year.
Now I am well aware that these three things are not ALL of the issues that we have. To put it simply we want your feedback. About our site, about our content, about the direction of the company. Please email me at Morgan@DriveByDogs.com and I will personally respond to every critique i receive.
Who's ready for 2018?
This is a HUGE year for our community. We actually have a lot of things going on behind closed doors this year. The guys will kill me if I say too much but expect BIG things from us this year. Expect us to address a lot of the issues we had last year, expect more professionalism and centralization of community efforts, and expect way more video based content. My goal is to put an even larger focus on creating content that is fun to make and fun to watch. We think that we have been successful nailing that formula so look forward to seeing more of us than ever over the next 300 or so moons.
As we progressively roll out new and exciting content, we are also refreshing our release schedule and focusing on consistency with our current production slate. Below is our new production schedule.
Drive By Blog
To start out the New Year Rylee and I will be writing for the site to give y'all some insight on what goes on behind the scenes here at the studio. This will now be the main place to get updates about our production so be sure to tune in weekly. Today is the first blog of the year, and come the 12th Rylee will post his first blog of the year, and then that pattern will continue for the foreseeable future.
To make things simple we could not thank you guys enough for the amazing 2017 you have given us. There have been plenty of highs and lows for us as a company but your persistence as an audience member has helped us push through the tough times. We are going into 2018 with a lot of ambition and energy. We are going to be trying some new things that may not be for everybody so please just continue to stick with us and give us feedback along the way. my inbox is always open for feedback.
Can't wait to kick ass with y'all this year,
