ONLINE Daily Newspaper Launched

Editors with ink in their veins thrill at the news that traditional books are rebounding (10 percent as of mid-2018) and Kindle appears to have peaked, and is now declining (3.8 percent).

Happily, Otsego County’s newspapers – the 211-year-old Freeman’s Journal and Hometown Oneonta, now 10 years old – are stable, profitable and ever-striving to serve the reading public, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

But www.AllOTSEGO.com is growing in leaps and bounds.

As of 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, AllOTSEGO.com becomes Otsego County’s Daily Newspaper/ONLINE, with world and national news, crosswords and more.

Since implementing a new strategy Oct. 1 – when news happens, we post it – traffic, annualized, has grown 50 percent – 50 percent!  That’s 592,716 users, 1,867,988 sessions, and 2,957,100 page views – in a county of 60,094 people and 23,627 households.

So beginning today, we are relaunching www.AllOTSEGO.com as:  Otsego County’s Daily Newspaper/ONLINE, with the goal of giving readers everything you expect in a local newspaper, up to the minute and at your fingertips.

Effective at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, you can access all the breaking local news you now find on  www.AllOTSEGO.com, plus world and national news, and such features as a daily crossword, comics (including color comics on Sundays), horoscope and Dear Abby.

Plus, for the first time, you will find all the material that appears weekly in Hometown Oneonta & The Freeman’s Journal – hard news, features, editorials, columns, letters to the editor, obituaries, great photographs.  The works.
