Last week, we were a bit self-centered and asked what readers would most like to see added to the Window & Door Web site. And the votes are in. Video appears to be in most demand. Obviously, that’s something we’re planning on, but it’s a big step for a staff more geared toward words and photos. And we want to make sure we do it right—in a way that’s useful to you.

In our question, we mentioned interviews with industry executives, demonstration videos showing new products, new machines and new techniques. I’d love to receive emails telling us if that’s what you’d like to see. And if you have other ideas, please share those as well.

As for our second-place vote getter—links to more resources—that’s something we’ve tried to do already on our site. We recently added the Green Resource Center that not only collects information we’ve produced ourselves, but also links to other sites that we think have good information. We don’t pretend to have the monopoly on useful information, and we’d also welcome suggestions for sites that you think could be helpful to for manufacturers, distributors and dealers.

Coming in third was an industry forum. We’ve tried to start that with The Talk. And we’ve been very pleased with the response we get each week from readers. We hope more of you will write. As we go forward, we plan to keep conversations going, not just for a week, but longer. And I would add here, don’t feel like you have to wait for Christina or myself to start a conversation on a topic. If you have an issue you’d like to air, send us an email. You know we love to hear from you.
