One day soon, you will point your browser (or your DiscourseHub mobile app) in the direction of www.lifewithcrohnscolitis.org and there you’ll be … in a completely different place!
Well, not completely different: the page on which you’ll find yourself will be the new landing page for this community. From there, you will simply have to click on “Community” and you’ll be on the old familiar page again.
So why are we doing this? Well, there are a few reasons:
- We want to give a first impression of a community that is dynamic and welcoming to newcomers, something that we’ve heard that the home page doesn’t always do.
- We’d like to attract more people to this community because our mission is “to ensure that patients living with rare diseases or chronic illnesses, as well as their caregivers, family, and friends, have a safe and supportive place to connect with others like them”.
- We hope to make this community more easily “findable” by the people who need it. To make it findable, we need a home page that Google and other search engines can zero in on and rank highly. (In the “biz”, that’s called “SEO”.)
We hope you like the new page when you see it. If you have any comments or suggestions as our designer is in the final stage of the design, we’d love to hear from you. (For that matter, we always love hearing from our members!) Simply post below, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
