In the words of the Little River Band, "it's time for a cool change."
About eight years ago, Land Line Magazine first found a home in cyberspace with its Web site, landlinemag.com. During that time, the site has gone through a number of cosmetic and content changes, the most significant being the addition in July 2001 of daily trucking news stories on the front page.
As time passed and OOIDA and the magazine grew, the site became a bit of a "cafeteria bulletin board," said Sandi Soendker, managing editor for Land Line. If you need an answer to almost any question in the trucking industry, there's a good chance landlinemag.com has it - but finding that little gem in a sea of information can be overwhelming.
Land Line's Online Editor Aaron Ladage and Webmaster Rex Rains have conspired to fix that.
Beginning Monday, landlinemag.com will make another evolutionary leap. The site has been redesigned from the ground up, with an emphasis placed on accessibility, load times and improving the site's overall look and feel.
Some of the changes will be subtle. Others will be obvious the first time you visit. What's most important, though, is that the new site be able to provide you with the trucking news and information that's important to your business in the fastest and easiest way possible.
There's no need to fear change here. All the information that you've come to count on from landlinemag.com, including the daily trucking news, will still be there. It'll just be easier to find and read from now on.
So on Monday, make a point to fire up your computer and point your browser to the new landlinemag.com. Please excuse our mess while we finish remodeling, and if you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to let us know.
A cool change? We think so, and we hope you'll agree.
