In 2011, the Topanga Messenger, recognizing advances in technology and reader demand for internet access to the newspaper, updated its website to expand our online offerings.
Our readers and advertisers have come to rely on our growing online coverage, as evidenced by the impressive number of visitors to our website: on average we reach more than 10,000 unique viewers per month. In 2013, we begin Phase Two of our digital expansion with the introduction of an online subscription option. For just $20 a year, online subscribers have access to all coverage and feature articles that appear in the print edition.
NEW ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION FEATURES
Over the next several weeks we will provide online subscribers exclusive access to an entire current edition of the Messenger in an Online Digital Editionadvertisements, color photos and all.
Also planned is a Media Gallery for showcasing more photographs of the events we cover. In addition, throughout 2013, archived editions will become accessible on the website. Eventually, full editions of the Topanga Messenger from as far back as our beginnings in 1976, will be available to online subscribers. Our goal is to share our rich archive of community stories and photographs, past and present, online.
