Eight months ago one lone teacher published Staffrm's first story. On that day, Staffrm took on a life of its own.
Our role as the founders has matured since, from architects to custodians. These days, we try to listen carefully to the community, and improve the site in response.
For example, Stephen tweeted us with this observation two weeks ago:
We immediately rolled up our sleeves and set about re-designing the site for better discovery. A couple of nights ago, we launched an upgraded navigation bar:
The point here is not to show off, but to give you an insight into how we work, and to illustrate the extent to which Staffrm is still very much a work-in-progress.
With this in mind, we'd love your help with a couple of things:
1. Experimentation. The whole #hashtag thing (we don't have a name for it yet) is awesome. It came about from someone just trying something out. So please, go wild. Try stuff out. Better still, write a #creatingstaffrm story and see what others think.
2. Growth. We are a small team of teachers who are building this as a social venture, in our spare time. Any support you can offer in terms of spreading the word is MASSIVELY appreciated*. Staffrm will get better with every new colleague that joins.
We'll continue to work hard to ensure the site keeps serving the community, but where it goes from here is largely down to you. Staffrm is yours. Now go make it great :)
