Out with the old, in with the 21st century

Change is good, isn’t it? Well, brace yourselves. If you haven’t heard already, I’ve been hired to run this paper next year.

I would be lying if I said I thought it was going to be easy. It’s going to be one heck of a challenge – though one I’m ready to take. I want to produce material that is interesting, gets people talking, covers all different spectrums and of course, meets a quality journalistic standard.

It’s important to produce quality material in the physical paper, but I also think it is vital to produce quality web material. I plan to change how theaq.net functions. I’d like to make The Aquinian’s website more accessible for visitors, which hopefully includes launching some new features.

I like to consider myself well-versed in the internet scene. I have an extensive background in blogging. At 15, I ran my own Sportingnews blog that received over 800,000 views. I also ran my own sports website where I did interviews with the TSN panel and multiple athletes from different sports.

With this experience under my belt, I think I can mould The AQ’s website for the better. This includes adding a dedicated blog section with topics that range from sports, to video games to just about everything.

Adding a multimedia section to the website is an important feature that we should also prepare to enter. I’ve noticed that other university newspapers across Canada have explored this, and I think it’s about time we caught up. With this new section I hope to include podcasts, videos and music from STU artists.

So what’s my next move?

You’ll have to wait and see. But I can tell you one thing: I am thrilled to be in this position and will do everything that I can to provide STU with the best paper.
