You’re probably wondering why 411 NOLA seems to be creeping along slowly. Never fear! Your plucky editor has not died. She has just been overwhelmed with behind-the-scenes work.
411 NOLA will be reinvented in the upcoming couple of months. You many not see many posts, but just hang tight. 411 NOLA as you know and love it will be back. In the meantime, explore our many pages full of useful info. There’s always more to know about NOLA!
You may have noticed that things got a little slow for 411 NOLA at the end of 2011. Well…good things are still happening this year. In fact, two of our contests end today, December 31, 2011. Don’t miss you chance to win tour tickets, cash, and more. (See below for more info.)
2012 is almost here, and 411 NOLA will reach its 2nd birthday in April. It’s hard to believe, but it is true. We hope to grow, to improve upon what we are already doing, and to create more ways to generate revenue so that we can continue to get better. Christmas and Chanukah may be over, but there is still time to give 411 NOLA a gift. Email us at email@example.com to find out how.
Thanks for your patronage in 2011. Stick with us in 2012. The best is yet to come (like Saints in the Super Bowl). Who Dat!
