Coming Soon…

Posted by Admin on March 6, 2008

New & Improved Content Coming Soon

UPDATE: I have purchased a domain name ~ WausauWord.com!
We will begin “moving in” to our new location soon.  Watch here for updates!  

Hi Everyone!

Well, our family got a new computer about a month ago which will make doing things online much easier for me than it has in the past. (We are homeschoolers and the children and I shared our old computer.) I will now be able to work online while they are doing their schoolwork, and still be available whenever they need me!

So, look for more news round-ups and commentaries appearing here soon! I can’t wait to get back to my writing and helping to keep my family, friends, and community informed — because the MSM sure doesn’t do a very good job of it anymore!

~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ PLANNED CHANGES & ADDITIONS ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~

  • *OUR OWN DOMAIN* ~ We will be getting a private domain name within the next few months (Blog name subject to change dependent upon availability of desired address(es)).
  • *NEW* This site deserves a makeover ~ Be on the watch for an all-new look for this blog!
  • More Commentary ~ I will be writing more in-depth coverage pieces on breaking and important news stories.
  • *NEW* The Sunday Morning Local & State News Round-Up ~ Catch up on all the news you may have missed throughout the week. (Online every Sunday morning.)
  • *NEW* Updated Information ~ I will be updating my “In-Depth Coverage” pages that have been previously published. Many pages will have new information added.
  • *NEW* Mailing List ~ Sign up for our new mailing list for updates received in your in-box daily. (COMING SOON)
  • *NEW* RSS Feeds ~ For your desktop, website, or Email program.
  • *IMPROVED* News Alerts ~ Better coverage of breaking news!
Thank you for reading the Wausau Word! Please come back soon!
Yours Truly,
Michelle K.
