- LJ 10th Anniversary
We have a lot of plans to mark the tenth anniversary of LiveJournal. We'll be asking the Board what they think about our plans and what role they want to play in the celebrations. You've probably already seen lj_turns10, our special birthday community. We'll use that as a springboard for a discussion with the Board about such questions as: How can we most effectively represent the global nature of LJ in our celebrations? What's the best way to reflect LJ's pioneering role in the social media boom? What areas of LJ should we be sure to highlight during the celebrations? Please comment on these questions and any other birthday-related questions you might have.
- New Paid and Premium Services
The expansion and enhancement of premium features are a big priority for LJ in 2009. We'll be asking the Advisory Board for their views on the new services we're working on, and we want your views to be represented, too. What kind of premium features are you most interested in? Should we do more with v-gifts? Who should we partner with to best add value to the site and boost the number of Paid Accounts? What's the best way for LJ to merchandise its own goods across the globe? What other kind of features should we offer? Let us know what you think.
