Chalk up this column to shameless self-promotion: I have to tell you about the magazine’s new-look Web site, www.palmspringslife.com.
We introduced the redesign in January, yet the changes go well beyond aesthetics. I’ll start with the design, though, because it places the most popular links front and center, simplifying searches for users who plan to visit the Palm Springs area, as well as for those of us who live here.
Over 16 years, www.palmspringslife.com has emerged as the most trenchant, content-rich site for tourists and residents. From the home page, we link you to the best places to stay, dine, golf, shop, and take in a spa experience. Click any of these links and you will find timely articles and directories to innumerable points of interest. We break it down more with front-page links to arts and entertainment, dining and nightlife, events, sports and outdoors, home design and architecture, style and shopping, health and beauty, and the scoial scene — the stuff you expect from Palm Springs Life (only much more of it).
For example, if you want plan a desert wedding, our site serves up experts’ advice and all the resources you need, from event planners to reception venues, for a perfect wedding — as well as great ideas for honeymooning in this desert paradise.
Readers of the magazine can search for and access articles from back issues by clicking on the Publications link, which also features 10 specialty magazines that we produce throughout the year.
Click on the Social Life link and enter the desert’s vibrant philanthropic scene — the galas and events benefitting local charities and nonprofit organizations that help find cures, ease suffering, improve quality of life, and educate and enlighten as many people as possible.
Best of all, you can e-mail articles, society pictures, and resources to your friends and family.
We encourage you to visit the site, bookmark it, sign up for our e-newsletters, submit calendar events and story ideas, write a letter to the editor, find advertising information, and offer your feedback about www.palmspringslife.com.
We encourage you to return often for up-to-date information and resources. The site is a valuable resource that we hope you will reference with great ease and frequency.
