I’ve had several people ask me questions about last week’s front page article on our move to a subscription-based website, effective Feb. 23.
Don’t worry. If you’re a subscriber to The News-Democrat, you’ll have access to all news and other content at MyCarrollNews.com. Access to the website is free for all of our print subscribers.
But you will have to take a few quick steps to get registered, then you’ll be ready to use the digital version of the newspaper.
It’s an easy process. All you need is to go to your computer with a copy of your News-Democrat that has your name imprinted on it.
To register, look for the area below “The News-Democrat” near the top right corner, where it says “login to your account.” Click on the link that says “Register.”
On the next page, you will be asked to input the four-digit account number from the top line of the mail label on your paper. Those are the first four numbers next to the subscription expiration date. Enter those digits, along with the street address exactly as it appears on your label. For example, if you live on 4th Street but it appears as “Fourth,” use the full word. If “Street” is abbreviated, then type in “St.”
Next, a window will pop up to let you input your e-mail address and a password, along with all of your other information.
Once you complete this step, you’re set and registered to enjoy MyCarrollNews.com.
If you’re not a subscriber, you will have the option to try out the website free for 30 days. If you like what we have to offer, we hope you choose to subscribe to the News-Democrat so that you can continue your online access and get a copy of the print version every week.
Our website offers all the news, sports, opinion and photos that you see in the newspaper each week. In fact, the electronic, or “E-Edition” of the newspaper at MyCarrollNews.com allows you to view each page of the newspaper on your screen, just as it appears in the print edition. Also online, there is additional content you can enjoy, such as blogs, photo slide shows, video from local events, and much more.
Sign up for the free 30-day trial and see what the website has to offer.
Like I mentioned in last week’s front page article, subscription revenue is an important part of the funding for our news and information efforts.
It’s important to us that our readers help pay for these services, regardless of whether they choose to read us in print or online. We value your readership and hope you visit our website often.
Just like the print edition, you will find that MyCarrollNews.com is the comprehensive source for news and information on Carroll County. So don’t miss out.
Register today and be ready for the switch; if you are not a subscriber now, remember that 30-day free trial.
