Hello, dear readers!

I am excited to announce a new way to read Seattle Bike Blog. The team from Luca reached out to me recently with the idea of prototyping their software, which creates a touch-screen-friendly online magazine.

Click here to read our first edition. It’s free and works in your browser (no e-reader necessary).

Those of you who follow every post are probably familiar with the stories in the magazine. But for those of you looking to kick back and catch-up on recent bike news, I hope you find the magazine a comfortable way to do so.

You can read the magazine on your computer, but it was really designed for smart phones and tablets.

I hope to make the magazine a regular and evolving feature going forward, and would love to hear your feedback on it. Let me know in the comments below.

Click here for issue #1.

  1. Wow, this is great! That looks like a lot of work. When do you have time for it all?

  2. This looks great, Tom!

    So other than being easier to read on my phone, why read these stories there? Often I get as much from the comments as the story itself.

  4. Tom,

    I really like the way the magazine looks but as an advertiser I would require my ads to show up in the magazine as I can’t afford to advertise and not have my ad present when folks read the blog (magazine). I want to continue to support the blog with advertising. Nothing personal against the magazine I think it looks great. I also agree with the comment about being able to read comments. Probably some kind of Hybrid version of both would be a great solution as it would make the blog more attractive to read but still offer comments (and ads). Thanks for asking for feedback.

      Hi, Christian. Totally! That’s the plan. This first issue was more a “proof of concept” to see if it was worth developing. I also see it as a way to give advertisers more exposure, and that’s a key part of plans going forward.

      Christaan, You need to feature in your ads that you rent bicycles. So few shops do that. Until I clicked on your name I had no idea who you were.

      Also your website isn’t good on my mobile device.

  5. […] touch-screen-optimized magazine is still in development. Thank you for your feedback on the last issue. We are hoping to add more social media content and reader responses in future editions, a feature […]
