Have You Noticed Some Changes to Farmington Patch?

Here is a quick guide to our latest site redesign.

No, you're not losing it! Farmington Patch looks different today. We did a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score: 

  • We tweaked some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic & Gas" is now "Commute") 
  • We moved the weather icon next to the Patch branding so you can find it more quickly! 
  • We moved, well, YOU closer to the top! (Our "shout stream" is now front and center to show all your comments off.) 
  • And of course we prettified a few things. 

While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same robust coverage of everything happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks - drop me a line or offer a comment below!

I would like to let the changes sink in, but nothing about the changes shock or offend me in the least. I am just hesitant to say the page is "better" and will give it some time to grow on me. My only comment, which applies to the old format as well, is that you should not lead with an advertisement. The very top line should be the Patch masthead. Most news websites seem to lead with their own masthead and then the ads are incorporated. Keep up the good work.
