My site has been online for a number of years now (since October 2006). It's was my first Joomla site ever and though I tweaked it a little bit over the years it basically hasn't changed a lot. I currently have about a steady 20,000-25,000 unique visitors each month and a PR3. I refresh the main page/magazine mostly once every month (sometimes I skip a month). I then publish 3-5 new pages/interviews I did (I go for quality content rather than adding a lot of pages).
I tried adding a board/forum but this didn't work at the time. It didn't bring in that many visitors and I found it worked against me since it looked like nobody ever visited my site.
I tried adding a tag cloud, but my provider at one point thought I had a DDOS attack and temporarily closed my website (haven't tried one since).
Note my title banner is a rotating image, so it looks different (yet still related on every fresh up)
I never switched to Joomla 1.5 because I'm basically affraid it doesn't work anymore and I loose everything. Plus I don't have the time/energy to start all over again (since I know I have to rebuild the tablet. Joomla 1.015 still works perfect for me and the old version of iJoomla Magazine too.
Enough talk. I'd like some opnions and comments on it, because I think it's time to freshen up stuff (so don't just say it looks great). Maybe people using the Magazine component have some ideas how I can improve or make it look more interesting.
