Now that we're out of private beta, it is very important that we "hit the ground running", so to speak, and increase participation on the site as much as possible.
I've emailed my former classmates and professors, and I'm trying to mention the site to friends, but I've also posted it on Reddit and was hoping if any of you are members of that site, you'd upvote it there so more people will see it. Maybe this is minor karma-whoring, but it's for a good cause :P
Does anyone else have any good ideas on how we can promote this site?
If you've already done some things to promote Philosophy Stack Exchange, especially if they're social in any way and could benefit from more people seeing/supporting them, please share them here!
And if anyone has suggestions or knows of specific promotion strategies that they've seen work in the past, please share those as well!
Since it's important that we market the site to new users who are not already part of the Stack Exchange community, does anyone know of any other web sites, bloggers, authors, etc. that we can target?
Our site also has a Twitter feed—@StackPhilosophy. It periodically tweets popular or interesting questions, so please share this and spread the word! We think it's a great way to entice and remind people to visit the site. You should definitely follow us yourself if you use Twitter, and even if you don't, you can add it to another service like Google Reader.
