If you have your own project that you work on, then here is a tip for you: set up a Trello Roadmap board!
My 'thing' is Phojo, a daily photo journal, and I created my roadmap board as a way to get feedback on what features people cared about and not. You can see it here: https://trello.com/b/JqCUWGGN/phojo-roadmap
Halfway through making the board, I realized that a side effect of the roadmap was that I got excited about my product! I could see all the cool things I had planned and it re-energized me to work!
I filled in two months' worth of released features, and discovered another benefit of the board; it will show me my velocity. I saw that I've gotten a lot more done in the last two months than I've given myself credit for.
I tried making a board like this before, and I quickly abandoned it. What did I do different this time? I made it fun and colorful! That is the whole point of all the photos, to tickle your playful nature and stir that creative part of your brain. And, of course, to draw people in.
It is much too soon to know if any of my users will ever vote and comment on these features, but even if they don't, it has been worth the time to create just for myself.
