MDDCnews.com readies for new rollout

The Press Association maintains a a regional news site that aggregates member headlines and provides a common platform for public notices across the region. The site has not been refreshed in some time, and the Association is focusing on using it as a vehicle to amplify the reach of its members and providing revenue streams to the Association.  Rebecca has been working with our new website vendor, One Bright Light, to design a more modern look and clarify the categories shown. 

The draft mockup is at right.  There are still tweaks to be made, such as a refreshed MDDCNews logo (in process) and adding categories such as Real Estate and High School Sports.  Members will have the option to send category-specific news stories as well as photos.  All items will link back to the source website so you will get added traffic and reach.

Currently, only a few members are represented through the RSS feeds.  We'd like to get every member to participate and plan to launch the new website in the fall.  There is no cost to members and no downside. 

How can you participate?

Send Rebecca the URL for your RSS feed.  Our vendor has developed specs so that you can tailor the content that shows up on mddcnews.com. 

Please click here for the specifications for the RSS feed.  To further simplify the public notice side of the site, we are also be asking members to send their public notices through RSS feeds.

Once the new site launches, publicize mddcnews.com on your website!
