What’s missing from Bright Side?

Hey there Bright Siders!

Some of you have been around a long time, while some of you are new to this here blog.

If you’re a long-timer around here, you might have noticed that there’s less community interaction in the comments sections than in years past.

This is interesting in that the Suns are finally good — in strong playoff position for the first time in a decade — yet the community interaction is actually downdowndown, to the tune of 30+% fewer comments. One of our greatest strengths has always been the community, so I want to ask YOU what’s changed.

And if you’re a new-timer, why don’t you hang around and get into conversations with the other community members?

Leave any comments you want in the comment section. I’m really curious what’s changed.

Overall readership is steady. Among other SB Nation basketball blogs, we’ve always been around 10th-ranked in readership even in the bad bad years, and this year we’re still around 10th. It’s the comments being down, and people not hanging around the site as long as you used to.

Hit me with it. I can’t improve unless I know what’s missing.
