A week of Web management under my belt

Jeremy Elwood, SBJ Web EditorMy mission: to boldly go where only one other person has gone before …

OK, so it doesn’t have the same ring as the classic Star Trek intro, but I feel as if I’ve entered an alien universe with my new job as Springfield Business Journal’s Web editor.

Dee Dee Jacobs, the person for which the online editor position was created and the person responsible for leading the creation of the site you’re reading now, moved on to a new position a little more than a week ago. She now serves as web content manager for CoxHealth. I began filling her shoes Aug. 21.

As a result, I now have the large task of leading the efforts behind sbj.net, while continuing to respond to changes in the way people use the Internet and the way people get their news.

To that end, we’re hosting a series of Web focus groups at our Park Central Square office. The goal is to gather a variety of SBJ users – those who rely on the print product, those who are solely Web readers, and the hybrids in between – to tell us what they like about our site and what they’d like to see updated.

It’s part of our effort to make sure that the Web site is as effective as possible, both for you as a reader and for us as a news outlet and a business.

If you think you’d be a good candidate for the Web focus groups, e-mail me and let me know; the more input we can get, the better we can provide the news you need in the manner you want.

In the meantime, I’ll continue to try to navigate this ship through the vastness of cyberspace. Wish me luck.
