Those familiar with the history of internet directories would agree that Alive Directory has been known for years to be one of the popular general directory destinations on the internet striving to maintain the right balance between strict editorial control of the user submitted content and the wide acceptance of the diversity offered by the internet by sites and informational resources from all walks of life, various geographies and areas of human interests.
In June 2014 Alive Directory went through a change in ownership and the new site administration is happy to announce that the directory blog is alive again. We consider the blog to be a perfect venue to share some exciting news and the future plans we have in place for directory development commonly referred to as the roadmap.
As a first order of business we upgraded the directory design hopefully making it easier and more appealing for general visitor use. Let us know how you like it (or not) via our Contact form if you feel like sharing your opinion. We will also be happy to see comments made via our social media accounts in Facebook and Twitter.
Design upgrade is just the first step in our plans to improve the directory and grow the army of our followers and fans.
