Ledger Newspaper Gets Online Presence

As of this week, The Ledger now has a news Web site.

I have been working on it for the past few weeks, and I finally have it up and running with the domain name pointing to it.

You can see it at http://www.ledgernewspaper.net.

I am using a WordPress install, which gives me a Content Management System without needing to build an infrastructure for the site.

I am using a free theme I found online.

It is called Hamasaki, and it is created by Nurudin Jauhari.

Initially, I had a splash page with general contact information parked at the domain, but with a java script, it now automatically redirects to the WordPress install.

I am very happy to finally have a Web site to use.

As Ledger editor, I will be responsible for all the content on the site, just as I am responsible for all the content in the print edition.

I hope to be able to use the site to provide extra photos and content that couldn’t be accommodated in the print edition.

Also, I plan on incorporating multimedia facets to my coverage of Inman and Moundridge.

Though the site is up and running in a satisfactory manner, I will continue to tweak it and create a product that is truly useful to online readers.

I have big goals for the site, so check it often.

And I welcome feedback. Please let me know what you think.

Again, the Web address is http://www.ledgernewspaper.net.
