Northern Star online offers more news more often

THE Northern Star's website is the first place locals go for breaking news.

But we want it to be much more than just that.

We are expanding our online coverage of community news and things to do to ensure the Northern Rivers is one of the most connected places in NSW.

And there's more to come.

Each month, The Northern Star publishes more than 500 stories, hundreds of photos and dozens of videos.

The site is continually updated through the day with breaking stories, keeping our readers better informed than they have ever been.

We've also introduced a daily watercooler piece to encourage discussion on the national story that everyone's talking about.

Our revamped Local Life page now includes community news, local opinions, local history, and pets. It's also the place where the best photos taken by Northern Star readers and photographers combine in a visual community.

We want you to be part of that community by sharing your stories, through our Your Story platform, http://www.northernstar.com.au/your-story.

Those stories can be anything - your school's successes, the work of your community group, junior sports stars and unsung heroes. You can also put your views on local issues - such as councils, development, heritage, housing, business and the like.

Our Things to Do page is also being changed improve coverage of local events.

Your views

We would love to know what you think about our website and how we can make it even better. Have your say at http://tinyurl.com/p5el8p7.
