Metromode's Got A Brand New Look
No matter how much you may have loved wide lapels and skinny ties, there comes a time when everyone's wardrobe has to change.
Well, after nearly 5 years Metromode
is trying on a new set of duds. Nothing crazy, mind you. We have no intention of becoming the Lady Gaga of web fashion trends. But something a little more sleek, stylish, and, most importantly, usable, seemed appropriate.
So, what does that mean for you, our discerning and fearless readers?
Well, for one, you can now leave comments after every story, video, blog post, or news item
. Using your Facebook account you can weigh in with your opinions, observations, compliments or criticisms on whatever we're writing about. That goes for all our previous content as well.
We want our readers to become a part of Metro Detroit's story because, frankly, if you're reading Metromode
you're a big part of where we're heading next.
And speaking of Facebook, why not join Metromode's Facebook page
You may also notice that our features now sport photos alongside the story
. Pop 'em open to see photographer Dave Lewinski's view on the who, what, and where of every feature.
Other changes might be a tad less obvious. We've got a Focus On
section on the homepage that directs you to stories you may be interested in, we post the Top 10 Feature Stories
in any given week, our city pages do a better job of connecting you with the latest news items and features, and if you dig what you're reading, well, the ability to sign up for our weekly newsletter (we promise not to do bad things with your email) is at the end of every story.
In the coming months we'll be working to make Metromode
more dynamic with its content, posting stories all through the week instead of just on Thursdays. Be sure to check back from time to time.
Ultimately, we like our new look and approach. We hope you will too! And if you don't... well, there's the nifty new comment section below where you can let us know.
