A busy start to JagWire this year

JagWire is officially online, as I have stated before. I am extremely thrilled to be moving the award-winning publication into the 21st century, and doing it right. Thanks to WordPress.com and School Newspapers Online, JagWire has a state-of-the-art website using the SNO Flex theme, which allows us to operate a professional home page with a showcase slidehow, recent sports scores ticker, breaking news ticker, custom image header, and each indivual section’s highlights. The design is phenomenal and its easy enough to use.

So far, the new JagWire website has racked in nearly 1000 page views in just two weeks. You can find our website at erhsjagwire.com.

JagWire also released the first print issue of the year, 15.1, on Tuesday to mostly positive feedback. Its the first time the publication has used spot-color since May 2013, so that’s very exciting. JagWire couldn’t of had a better start to the year (unless it involves the school actually giving us enough money and equipment to operate, which has never happened.)

This is why I have been absent. Managing a newspaper is turning out to be more work than I could have ever imagined, especially with so much uncharted territory ahead. For now, I’m signing off again.

Hello there! I'm Chase, an ambitious, aspiring young novelist and YouTuber who hopes to get a novel published one day. I'm also trying to produce the highest quality YouTube videos by constantly learning new ways to film and edit. I've been involved in journalism for 5 years, including 1 year as co-editor of a national award-winning high school newsmagazine and 1 year as the co-editor of an award-winning college newspaper. I write mainly epic/high fantasy, but I also mess around with science fiction, horror, and realistic fiction.
