By now, you’ve noticed that MyVeronaNJ.com looks a bit different this morning. We’ve come a long way in our first three months, and, last night, we took some steps to get the site ready for its next phase of growth.
We’ve published almost 400 stories since last December. But the old site made it hard to showcase the most important pieces. Now, you’ll see a rotating slideshow of our top four stories. We’ve got to tweak the photography for the top slots a bit, but we’ll make those improvements soon. Below the top stories, you’ll see groupings of stories. On the weekend, you might see a prominent display of food writing. But when the spring sports kick in, we can easily switch the second column on the home page to display all the game results.
Our button ads now display in a group, and we hope you’ll take a minute to visit these advertisers. We’re going to be adding in more ad slots, on the home page and category pages, as well as on the page that displays when you click through to a single story. If you’re interested in any of those opportunities, please contact Doreen Arminio, our ad sales director.
Just beneath the buttons, you’ll see today’s events. But further down the home page to the left, we’re now showing you a week’s worth of items. The full calendar–and, with the onset of spring sports, it is beginning to look really full–is still available on the calendar page. We’ve split the links too: Keeping those to town government near the top right, and listing all the rest in an easy-to-read row at the bottom.
