Our readership has come a long way since our publication moved online two years ago. What also has come a long way in the last few years is the Web. When you look at popular websites like The Verge, The New Republic, and Slate, you can immediately see where web design is headed.
The new look of the CLO that we introduce today reflects this changing landscape. I have a pet theory of mine to describe how websites are changing and transitioning: I refer to websites as being “pre-Pinterest” or “post-Pinterest.” We outgrew our old digs—in a good way—and have transitioned to the post-Pinterest web.
Some parts of our site will feel familiar, and others will be completely new. We’ve placed a greater emphasis on our recently-launched The Law Governing Lawyers section that focuses on ethics and professionalism in North Carolina. We have also provided readers with the ability to interact directly with us on Twitter while reading our latest articles. And we have introduced the most requested feature of our site—an email subscription—so readers can have weekly updates in case they missed an article or two.
We hope that the expansion of our content, changes to our website, and continued growth as a publication will make the CLO a destination website that you, the reader, visit every day. I hope you enjoy the future of the Campbell Law Observer.
