I know…I know…it has been sooooooooooo very long since the last time my fingers struck keys to this blog…but this winter has been full of bits and bites and thisses and thatses. But lots of little theses and thoses grow and blossom into bigger THINGS!
Things…like a shiny brand new website! Yes!
That’s right. We have a brand new website! It’s clean, and bright, and organized, and it has an organized events page, and pretty pictures and….. *SQUEE*
Ok. Deep breath. Now, for anyone who has been following this blog, you know that I am one of the least technologically savvy twenty-somethings on the planet. And computer stuff is one of the least interesting things ever to me. If you haven’t been reading, I am one of the least technologically savvy twenty-somethings on the planet. And computer stuff is one of the least interesting things ever to me. (Now that we are all caught up….) BUT. It is not so much the website that is exciting to me, but it is what it represents…
Over the last few years, the museum has been growing, and transforming… undergoing a metamorphosis if you will.
Things take time. Trial and error, use and improvement, ideas and more ideas. Tammy has had the Museum on an upward trajectory for a while now, and the last little bit has been no exception. A perfect storm has come together, and like nourishing water and sunshine to plants, our beautiful little facility has began to truly blossom.
The previous website was okaaaaaay, but it just didn’t quite have that professional feel and accessibility that we really want to communicate to people, show them just how special this small town Museum REALLY is...
We have been working quite a bit on connection to the public; outreach if you will, and being as interactively friendly as possible. Which means not only the the ability to come to the Museum and physically interact with as much here as possible, but also share online exhibits, articles, blog posts, events etc when you can’t be here in person…which…the old website couldn’t do.
We even have an online store now!
One of my tasks in this next little bit is going to be to take more pictures to help fill up the store, but it’s still got some pretty good stuff in it. It’s only February, but who doesn’t want to get a jump on their Christmas shopping? eh? eh? huh?
We won’t judge you. In fact, we are the ones encouraging you. Just sayin.
Come check it out!
