The three Roanoke Times community papers in the Roanoke Valley: The Botetourt View, So Salem and Swoco had over a million page views online in 2012. All of the information printed on Fridays can be seen first online. Truly, the three blog versions are online community newspapers and our readers recognize it. Social media supplements us with Twitter and Facebook link backs to our online sites for more on the stories we bring to our communities. If you haven’t already, follow us!
Senior Editor Dwayne Yancey said,” One million! That’s up 21% over last year at this time. There’s not much in the world that’s growing at that kind of rate, but we are – so congratulations!”
We who write, solicit and photograph, and those of you who submit information of all types can be very proud of our efforts. To our followers at The Botetourt View, ” We say thanks a million for supporting us online! ”
