Redesigned Web site reaction

December 18, 2011

Dear readers:

OK folks, we very much value your input and have fixed certain aspects of the new Web site such as replacing the word DESCRIPTION with date and venue of the upcoming car shows on the home page. Also, if you click on monthly, then go to example January 2012, all the shows for next month are listed. We at Motoring Tampa Bay publication and motoringtampabay.com Web site are aware change is difficult but after 3 1/2 years of the Web site, we had to make changes. You will notice that now you don’t have to scroll all the way down to the page to read a story that you have no interest in. Of course, we are still working to fix certain glitches that are part of any newly redesigned, relaunched venture.

And all you folks who liked the old Web site listing of car shows, the listing will continue as it was on the old Web site in our monthly publication. You are all encouraged to support our publication by an annual subscription of a $12 check addressed to MOTORING TAMPA BAY, 18313 Cypress Stand Circle, Tampa, FL 33647.

Keep those opinions (negative, positive) rolling in and as always, safe motoring!
