A few months ago the idea began to take form in my head for a complete redesign and overhaul of Qcostarica.com. It had been several years since any real update. The process involved also the restructuring of several other Q Media properties. In the form of both excitement and frustration, the new Q rolled out last week.
I know that it is not finished yet, it’s going to take a while longer to implement some of the additional back-end changes and new features bouncing around in my head. I can’t mentioned them yet, mostly because I am not quite sure yet which of the few will actually be a reality and which will remain as an idea for a later time.
I made the decision to take the extra time to get it right from the beginning. I resisted the urge to just put it out there and see what happens. That has been my modus operandi in the past, some, like QCR became a hit, others, however, never made it past 100 visits a day.
Having what is a great idea in my head doesn’t always translate into something great.
On that, many have asked why Q? Well, why not? The truth though is that, being a Star Trek fan, Q, the fictional character in Star Trek: The Next Generation stuck with me. And it sounds good, often having to spell it out, though most get Costa Rica right away. In Spanish it’s pronounced “koo”.
I sincerely hope you like the new look and feel . My goal is making the Q one of the best sources for news and information on Costa Rica and Latin America.
