AFP consolidates

Brent Finnegan -- January 8th, 2007

In case you haven’t noticed, as of last Thursday, the AFP Forum blog is no more (it took less than 12 hours for that vacant blogspot address to become a giant porn ad). The Augusta Free Press and its ancillary blogs shut down and relaunched as The New Dominion.

I was talking to Chris Graham on Friday, and he said the move was made to consolidate all content on one site, and to start up under a new name that didn’t make Valley readers think it was just an Augusta County thing. The new WordPress site is a vast improvement over the somewhat cluttered AFP layout. The New Dominion is a mix of blog, online news weekly, and quarterly print magazine.

    I had the AFP forum bookmarked and got a big shock when I went there this weekend. The porn hackers don’t waste much time. The new site is very well designed and I hope it brings them more readers!

    It would be cool if the ND had separate RSS feeds for news and sports, simply because I don’t care that much about the ACC stuff.
