Welcome to the new look Daily Dust. We’re still bringing you the best of British from around the web, but we thought it was time for a little summer spruce up around the site.
We’ve been online now since late in 2008, and in that time we might have moved a pixel or two, but we’ve not sat down to see what works on the site and what needs work. Well, now we have, and the results are here for all to see.
Highlighting our favourite stories of the day was one goal, and we’re going to bring a featured story to the top of the index page on a regular basis. A lot of you commented that regular visitors were having to really look to work out what was new. So we’ve merged the categories on the front page to a single river of news, but you can still jump to your favourite section from the top menu bar.
If you’re looking to reach out to tens of thousands of UK readers, the new design will make it easier for us to run competitions, look at new products, and talk about new services for our British audience, as well as give a great start to some recently graduated journalists who are working with The Dust.
And now, onwards to more fun and frolics with your good news newspaper, The Daily Dust.
PS… If you could just ignore any teething troubles with the new site, it would be appreciated, there’s still one or two points we want to add, but we’ll do that out in the open so we can bring you the best of the web every day!
