Been wrestling with an easy, handy and catchy term for what it is that I am now doing with Bay Island Newspaper (that’s the official name BTW).
Of course there is now (for the time being, anyway) no paper involved, so I needed another name.
Finally, inspiration struck!

I’ll refer to it as the bayislandnewsite..
Not going to change official names or web address, but I’ll make reference to it as "the newsite". A play on it being new, and a website for news..

Any comments?
PS, I’m only addressing this question to this particular group…. See MoreSee Less
