Big news: We’re simplifying our membership system

Hi My Buckhannon readers—

Good news! We’re simplifying our membership system.

About time, right? Our paywall was a bit of a mess. Technically, it was working as designed. But it wasn’t very intuitive.

So forget that.

Now it’s simple:

  • Some stories will be marked ‘member exclusives’ and these will only be accessible to our paying subscribers.
  • Stories that are not tagged member exclusive are free to everyone.

That’s it. No random paywalls, no monthly limits, no confusion. A story is either free, or it’s a member exclusive.

Exclusive stories will be marked with a red badge. Non-subscribers will be able to read the first few paragraphs, and then they’ll be asked to join to see the full article.

As before, certain categories of content are also accessible only by members, such as our photo galleries and legal ads. If you’re already a subscriber, rock on. You still have totally unlimited access to everything – every word, every photo.

At My Buckhannon, we love what we do. We want to make information accessible and promote Buckhannon and Upshur County to the world. But we also want to make sure we’re doing so in a way that’s economically sustainable. We’re a small local business with big goals.

May was an exciting month for us. We shattered our monthly pageview record, topping 125,000 views from more than 45,000 people. And we’re working with more local businesses than ever to increase their digital marketing presence.
