Sorry about that data dump and other things

Dear Readers: On May 15, your email box received a data dump of mega proportions from Women’s Outdoor News (that is, if you subscribe) because of many reasons. Mainly, our RSS Feed broke and when our new webmaster, Penny Haynes, repaired the pipeline, well, you got a gush of updates.

The WON has undergone several changes in the past month. A new webmaster, search engine optimization improvements, a new host — so that we can support the increased bandwidth demands.

Probably the most important addition, though, is moving from our “news, reviews and stories about you” to our new focus of “shooting, hunting, fishing and adventure.”

Britney Starr

We’ve also brought Britney Starr on as our new social media editor. She is building our Twitter kingdom, probably as I write this post. You all know Britney from her excellent gear reviews here at the site.

The Olympic biathletes, twin sisters Lanny and Tracy Barnes will be joining us with their new column in June, sponsored by Advanced Technology International.

And …. wait! There’s even more! But, we’re not going to announce that for another week — but, we think you’re gonna like it.

And … we will continue to give away cool swag and stuff, including a chunky, funky necklace next week from our new advertiser, 30 Cal Gal, Anette Wachter.

So, please forgive us for the glitches along the way. When we’re up and running, we’ll be trying real hard not to exceed the speed limit!
