GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Fans of GenevaLunch, a regional news site that generates 85-105,000 page views a month, will see a new approach to the news after the weekend. The changes are in line with major shifts going on in the world of journalism and the way news consumers find what they want today.
GenevaLunch.com is stepping into the future of news, but exactly what that means and why we think it’s time for a significant change will remain our secret for another few days. A couple of clues are that the blogs will be folded into the main posts area and that you can expect both more news items and more commentary from editor and main writer Ellen Wallace.
Thank you for 7 years of regular reading, but now we’d like to ask a favour
We receive several messages a month from people who tell us how much they appreciate GenevaLunch, the most widely read source of Swiss news in English in the area. Now we’re asking for your help to support the change.
Here’s what blogger Laila Rodriguez, who has been writing GenevaLiving since 2009, says today in her post:
“Geneva Living, this blog which I have been writing since March 2009, is making a move! I will still be writing about life in Geneva, but under GenevaLunch’s new platform, which begins 29 April. Expect major changes, though one thing will remain unchanged: great content.
GenevaLunch will continue to be a non-profit venture run by Ellen Wallace who started it back in 2006. Ellen is absorbing all costs to make this an even better website. I urge you to contribute to help this transition.
Donate anything you can: CHF10 or CHF10,000! The money will be used to enhance your experience and to pay for the move. We do not receive salaries for our work on this site.”
