Regular visitors and email subscribers to Zenith City Press will notice a few changes starting today, May 1, 2021—exactly nine years since we first launched the site.
First, thanks to webmeister Dan Turner, we’ve freshened up the front page a bit with a modified design and new icons for the ZCP Story Archive. Then we added two categories to the archive, “Duluth Waterfront” and “Superior, Wisconsin, and the South Shore” to make it easier to find stories on those subjects that were previously placed in other categories. We haven‘t cut any stories, and we will continue to add to the archive—now ten categories containing over 1,000 stories. (To visit the ZCP Story Archive, go to our home page.)
And we’ve changed how we deliver “This Day in Duluth” to you. Rather than flood your email inbox every day—and twice when we have announcements—you will receive a “This Week in Duluth” email every Friday with links to “This Day” posts from the previous seven days. If you like reading a “This Day” every day, the stories will still be available to you on our home page. In fact, whenever you visit our “This Day in Duluth Archive” you can select from three different posts for the current date (or read them all). And Dan added a handy drop-down search feature that let’s you easily find “This Day” posts from any day you wish. Check out the new “This Day” archive here.
And starting today you will receive three emails from us each week instead of eight or more—one every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Mondays we will post a story from our archive or make announcements about new books, sales, author readings/signings and events, additions to our story archive, and other news from Zenith City Press. Wednesday’s email will feature one of vintage art reproduction designs. And on Fridays, as mentioned above, your Zenith City email will connect you to “This Day” stories from the previous seven days.
Finally, if you connect with us via Facebook, just like our emails, our social media posts will go from every day to just three days a week. Thanks for reading, and for the ongoing support you provide Zenith City Press by buying our books and vintage art products. Please share our posts and encourage your friends to sign up for our emails or follow us on Facebook, which they can do here.
