Welcome to Our New Website!
Oakland County, MI – So here it is – the new and improved Oakland County Times!
After over a decade with the same simple and trusty website, we’re pleased to introduce a site that is as practical as it is delightful, thanks to our friends at Loudbaby.com.
The layout is similar, intentionally designed for ease of use. But those on mobile will notice it’s easier to use on those devices. We’ve also added a social media sharing bar to each post. Please use this often. The more you help share our posts, the more sites like Facebook and Twitter know there is value in local journalism. It also helps us with clicks, which isn’t our top priority but are still helpful.
Another great feature is at the bottom of each story. Here the website automatically picks recommended posts and lets readers go to the previous and next posts on the site.
For those who simply want news for their community, we’ve kept the list of cities and townships on the right hand side. On the sidebar you’ll also see links to our Paypal and Patreon buttons. When you chip in to our website you support local journalism.
Our informative and inspirational sections remain, including:
Over the past 12 years, we’ve grown from a small community news site in Ferndale, to the site you see today. We’re proud to have expanded to a county-wide framework. Our goal was to have a known presence in every community by 2020 and solid news coverage county-wide by 2025. And we are proud to be on track for that. Help us continue on this path:
Thank you so much to everyone who is part of making this site happen!
