Caught reading on the Web site?
Readers who have visited Metro Lutheran’s Web site may have noticed recent changes. The new Web site allows greater ability to tag stories, making them searchable by topic, person, or category. “The new Web site also presents a cleaner presentation of our stories,” explained Bob Hulteen, Metro Lutheran editor.
“We are indebted to Daniel Edwins [of Neuger Communications], who has helped us make this transition,” said editorial intern Ryan Cosgrove, the moving force on the staff behind many of the improvements. “Be sure to check the Web site often as it is regularly updated,” said Cosgrove. “The Web site is not the only transition of the summer, though,” added Hulteen.
Metro Lutheran has expanded its Internet presence to include second party Web sites Facebook and Twitter. “It is our hope to reach our readers in multiple ways that are appropriate to modern needs,” Cosgrove explained.
These accounts are regularly updated and offer readers another, more personable way to connect with us. For instance, readers who have recently been featured in the “Caught Reading” section of the newspaper, can go to the Facebook page’s “Caught Reading” photo gallery and “tag” themselves. The Facebook Web page is www.facebook.com/MetroLutheran and the Twitter page is www.twitter.com/MetroLutheran.
All of these changes are part of our commitment to continue telling the story of Lutheranism. And for those of you who do not know what any of this is; don’t worry, we’re still printing the paper.
