Convenience? You’ve got it!
As some of you may have noticed, First Arkansas News is a relatively new site (exactly 12 days old as of this writing).
For the past few days, a few features have been added to the site that are worth mentioning. Why? Because they (hopefully) offer convenience and flexibility to the folks who want to follow this site easily.
In the right sidebar, you’ll find four buttons that make it easy to keep up with the latest posts around here — one that lets you subscribe to our RSS feed, one that will take you to our Facebook page, another that leads to our Twitter site and a fourth one that lets you sign up for daily email updates.
The email subscriptions are, I hope, pretty cool. People who sign up for that service get a digest with the latest posts in their email boxes somewhere between 7-9 a.m. every morning. Kind of reminds me of walking out to the front yard to pick up the daily newspaper — since we at First Arkansas News kind of think of this site as a digital newspaper, anyway, it seems appropriate to allow for such subscriptions.
Oh, and if you want to send an email to Ethan C. Nobles (the man to blame for this mess) simply click the “contact” form at the top of the page.
It’s also possible to both share articles through email and print them out in a suitable form. At the top of each post, you’ll notice a couple of icons — a printer and an envelope. The use for each is, at this point, fairly obvious.
Hopefully, readers will appreciate these features. Look for more bells and whistles in the future.
