A new experience

It’s official: JagWire is now online! 

Thanks to WordPress, School Newspapers Online, and the school administration, my beloved newsmagazine can finally begin its eventual goal of ditching the expensive print edition. While that won’t happen this year, we decided to cut our number of print issues down to six this year instead of eight.

This saves us $1000 (the website cost came out of last year’s budget I think.) and allows us to focus that money on making each print issue more appealing and exciting (color!). 

I spent most of today designing the website and getting everything ready for the school year. Social media accounts have been connected, custom headers added, a photo galley started, subsections added, and the color scheme finalized. Now I just need to get the Editorial Board to take a look and begin writing some articles/taking pictures of the activities going on this week at the school.

I’m super excited for this new opportunity.
