Welcome to the New Sonoran Alliance!

Welcome to the new design of Sonoran Alliance!

It’s been FIVE years since the original site went live with the design you’ve all grown accustomed to. Over that time, we’ve done virtually nothing to the design until today.

As you can see, we now have widgets enabled along the right side of the page. This will allow readers to search, view tags, categories and archives and polls. You will also be able to tweet our posts and subscribe to our email list through feedburner.

Another thing you will notice is that Sonoran Alliance is finally running ads! That’s right, we’re finally monetized! Any business or candidate running for office now has the opportunity place an ad on the site and drive some traffic to their website! (Contact me if I can get that set up.)

I hope you like the changes. Please feel free to leave feedback.

Finally, I want to give a huge thanks to my friend and the technical guru behind Sonoran Alliance, Tim R. and company at Adeptplus! Five years ago, Tim breathed 1’s and 0’s into Sonoran Alliance and the rest was history. Thanks Tim!

    3 Cheers for the sleek new theme! And what happens if progressives like Sinema actually want to buy an ad?

  2. The redesign looks great, especially to old eyes like mine. ;-P

    I must admit some trepidation about the ads; I really enjoyed the fact that SA was one of the last bastions of ad-free space on the internet. Oh well. You gotta make money somehow.

    And AllUs, if Sinema wants to waste her money on an ad here, I’m sure we’ll all be glad to “click through” and take as much money out of her coffers as we can. lol

  3. Sorry JJ, But we’ve got to start paying our bills. After the site crashes, due to high traffic in January, the stress and demand on the servers required us to make some infrastructural changes that obviously cost a little more money. Of course, this is a good problem to have. Already, we are on our way towards paying our way. And fortunately, the ads are not that intrusive or pop-ups! Thanks for all your support over the years!

    As a confirmed blogging addict — I love your new look and am a new SA groupie. Question. How do you post a profile image?

  5. Hi Paula,

    Thanks for your support! I believe the best way to get a profile image is to register with Gravatar.com.

    I think I’ll do the same.

    Yes, easy on the eyes. Thank you.

  7. Paula Pennypacker says

    Thanks! It worked!!!

  8. Compliments on the new site guys. You wear this wordpress theme well…

  9. Also, if I may suggest the addition of a Facebook “Like” button next to the twitter counter.

  10. I’m sure we’ll all be glad to “click through” and take as much money out of her coffers as we can.
