We’re a few months in and we’ve learned a lot. Launching a hyperlocal community site dedicated to news, entertainment and events is a big endeavor. The moving parts and pieces are numerous, but the project is relatively simple in its stripped down form. We provide the forum, bring people together and it grows organically from there.
For version 3.0, we sought to uncover content on the site that was formerly buried under unnecessarry navigation and combine some of the best features from each landing page into the homepage. Readers can now browse news, follow their favorite columnists on Page 22 and scan the weather and events all from the homepage. Individual landing pages also received major overhauls with new post formats and more interactive excerpts and summaries.
