The Eastsider is getting a makeover

Hi, Readers!

Expect big changes on The Eastsider tomorrow, April 2. We are scheduled to switch over to a new layout and publishing system to keep us up to speed in our fast-changing business.

The Eastsider, now in its 10th year of operation, will be joining the more than 1,700 media outlets that use TownNews to create, publish and manage their digital publications. The switch represents a significant investment in time and money for a small outfit like ours. But I’m looking forward to the new look and the many behind-the-scenes features that will make the site more efficient for us and useful for you.

In addition to changes on TheEastsiderLA.com, our email newsletters will also adopt a new look. We also will be offering web notifications to alert you to the latest news.

As with any major change, there will likely be some hitches and glitches as we move to our new home on the internet.  In case we experience problems or delays, check our Facebook page and Twitter feed for the latest news and updates. Wish us luck!

— Jesús Sanchez, Publisher
