Another guest entry from The News-Gazette's online editor, Mike Howie
Before the first line of code was written on our new Web site, we were engaged in serious research about what the new site should do. For nearly a year and a half, we’ve been monitoring daily what draws eyes to the site – and what doesn’t.

If you’re a regular visitor to news-gazette.com, you’ve already noticed the redesign that launched this week.
That was just the start.
We've gotten a good number of comments about our revamped Web site, some complimentary, some critical, but all appreciated. We'll use them as we continue to improve and develop new content for the site.
After months of planning and preparation, our new Web site is up and running. We hope you'll find it more attractive and easier to use than the old site.
The site will emphasize local breaking news and photos and we will also post major breaking Associated Press news stories from the state, nation and world. Over time, we have a lot of other plans for interesting content that we hope will have you coming back frequently and spending some time while you're here.
