A Faster RealCrozetVA

1 – I’ve switched hosts at RealCrozetVA for the first time in well over a decade. The site should be *much* faster now.

2 – I suspect the blog will be here after Facebook goes away at some point.

3 – I seem to have forgotten about the RealCrozetVA email … it’s broken for the moment. Until that’s sorted, if you need to contact me, please email me at [email protected] or text – 434-242-7140. Fixed the email (small technological victory, of which I’m quite proud).

More Deliberate RealCrozetVA Facebook Posts

Slightly off topic …

The RealCrozetVA Facebook page is a thriving community. I encourage everyone who’s on Facebook to like, follow, read it.

Going forward, I’ll be posting less frequently, and more deliberately there. If there is something urgent, text me – 434-242-7140. Or email me.

Why?

1 – Facebook is a bad and concerning thing.

Reviewing Crozet in 2016 through the RealCrozetVA lens

2015 was interesting. 2016 continued the interesting.  Through November, 140 stories were posted here on the blog. A lot more throughout the RealCrozetVA ecosystem. I’ve done this recap for a couple years and I find it useful, informative, and helpful for me; I hope it is for you as well.

What do you think were the biggest stories of 2016 in Crozet?

These are a few, but by no means the only, or biggest, 2016 Crozet stories

 

Crozet is and will remain a wonderful place to live. Let’s see how we can work together to grow wisely, keeping as much as we can that makes Crozet a special place to be.

The RealCrozetVA ecosystem is: The RealCrozetVA blog, RealCrozetVA Twitter, RealCrozetVA facebook, and RealCrozetVA Instagram. The RealCrozetVA home is and will always be the blog, because I own it … and the rest likely can and will change. I’ve found the archives here invaluable.

Questions? Comments? Email or call me anytime.

I truly hope this site has been useful.

Let’s Fill the Crozet Calendar

I know there’s more stuff going on in Crozet in May than is listed here. Adding an event takes less than a minute. Really. Click here to add an event yourself. I’ve been told that a lot of people read and depend on the Crozet Calendar … adding events would be appreciated! Music, Crozet Arts & Crafts, events at Vineyards …

New Look to RealCrozetVA

You’ll notice some changes at RealCrozetVA. I’m playing with a new look while trying to keep the functionality and usability of the site as high as possible.

There’s still quite a bit I’m going to try to make time to make better (notably the calendar, the search for homes page(s) and a few other things), but the focus will remain trying to provide as much useful, relevant content as possible.

A couple things I like – the upcoming events on the left sidebar (would love to have more music shown here), comments prominently on the right and the link to the Facebook widget on the right, stronger imagery at the top, and generally a cleaner look – for desktop and mobile.

Feedback, suggestions (and help) always welcomed and appreciated.

A question for you mobile users – which looks better? (click through)
