Newark, Ohio Links Newsletter For March 28, 2010

Newark, Ohio Links continues to evolve. More websites have been added and some additional functions added. The website is gaining traffic at a steady pace. It’s taken quite an effort to build, so I’m happy to see improvements. Websites take patience and work and I enjoy the challenge.

There is now an events listing. I’ve noticed that other websites fill it up with to many small events. Taco night every Wednesday at a restaurant is not an “event” to most of us. I’m going to be looking for the big events to fill there, but I’ll ad any reasonable events that I’m sent.

The Newark, Ohio Library Seeks Additional Funds

I’ve been hearing about the levy for the Newark, Ohio Library, but there is no mention of the Licking County library levy on their website. One would think this would be on the front page and that they would be proud to explain their financial situation. They are the information center of the county right?

Don’t get me wrong, we should all support the library. It’s the only good resource we have locally for books and it saves anyone seeking information time and money. My problem is that they are asking for funds, but they are not giving any specifics as to what the funds will be used for. If you look at the back page of the flier, they only give very broad explanations.

Below are the ads that I received today. They tell what they did in the past. They inform us that the state is making a 25% cut in their funding. They do not tell us exactly what will be cut, how much of their funding comes from the state, or what they intend to do with the increase we will pay with our tax dollars. I hope it will not be for more expensive and flashy printing like what is used for these fliers.  All I want is detailed information, save the photos of the kids and elderly, I already know and care about them.

Shepard Auto Care – Newark, Ohio Mechanic Starts Website

Shepard Auto Care on the south side of Newark, Ohio, started a new website. They have taken notice of the advantages that even a simple startup website can have for a business. My friend brought the website to my attention to the website after having car work done and returning a satisfied customer.

The website has the ability to contact the shop, ask questions and to make an appointment for repairs. Money-saving coupons are on the website too. Shepard has some great people and they’re website shows that they’re doing their best to do things right.

As a side note for those of you starting your own business websites. I can tell that Shepard has invested at least a few dollars in his website. This is good and it will pay off for him in time, but look at a Newark, Ohio resident’s reference to the good car service he received. This reference ranks second in the Google search “auto care newark ohio”.  Your customers are worth more than you think, especially if they blog!

In Conclusion

If you have any Newark, Ohio links or stories you want me to post, send them to me. I’m always happy to get them.
