Unveiling a new Web site reminds me a lot of buying a new car. There's an anticipation and unmistakable newness, but it doesn't last long. And that's especially true in the Internet world where things change and grow almost daily.
So before that new-car smell starts to wear off, I'd invite you to please check out our new Web site at www.cornandsoybeandigest.com.
You'll notice an overhaul that barely resembles the former site — at all. At the top we've added eight separate categories, called drop downs in Web jargon, that list all stories we've run on our Web site and in the magazine, sorted for convenient content searching.
Just below that is the “What's New” section that features the latest news affecting your business. And below that you'll find familiar faces and insights from our three popular columnists:
Richard Brock heading up Market News
David Kohl as the Road Warrior of Agriculture
Kent Thiesse's Focus On Agriculture.
Plus, you'll see a running list of the most popular articles on our site, weather, commodity prices, special projects and events, and of course the latest magazine issues.
We hope you like the new look and find it faster and easier to navigate. We'd like to hear from you — anytime — good or bad. Let us know what you think by simply clicking on the “contact us” tab at the bottom of the site. We'll listen.
