Hey my dear sweet valued guests, members, clients, lurkers, and friends
When I took over as owner, one of the things I was determined to myfolsom back to being a true community website; a fun place to hang out and a great resource to people who want information about Folsom.
I wanted it to be less about politics and national issues, as there are many places to discuss those, and more about our parks, schools, restaurants, safety, entertainment, recreation, events and all of the other elements that make this a great place to live.
I want to re-create and rejuvenate this site into something that you will gladly visit often, participate in discussions and recommend to others, and make it the go-to site when you have questions about Folsom.
With that in mind, you'll see some changes, some subtle and some more obvious.
I always welcome your feedback.
I've sold homes to quite a few myfolsom members over the years, and also to guests who found me by googling Folsom schools or something else about Folsom while they were deciding if they wanted to live here, then seeing, 'Hey, there's a Realtor on here and he seems to know that town'.
I just installed a new home search widget on the front page www.myfolsom.com . It links directly to MLS, giving you live data with a map search and pictures, too. I hope you'll take it for a test drive and let me know what you think. Also, please recommend it to others. I pushed one pushing one of the advertisement spaces down the page a little to make room for it.
Speaking of ads, I haven't accepted any new ads since taking over. I wanted to do a couple of tweaks and clean ups first, and guessing that it will never be perfect, I am ready to start.
Soon, in addition to same 5 or so rotating ads that you see every day, we'll be bring some others aboard. They will rotate, so you don't just get a page full of advertisements.
I also added a weather widget to the front page too, as I discovered it is one of the most popular elements of community and media websites.
We've also cleaned up a few tabs and reduced the blog categories and gotten rid of the visible seo tags.
I'll be gradually adding more features and improving the overall look and feel.
I welcome your feedback, both positive and constructive.
Thanks for reading.
