New road show @ VIANOLAVIE

There’s a new destination for NolaVie readers, and we’re pumped about it. Soon, the NolaVie website will become VIANOLAVIE, marking a new stage in our journey.

VIA – by way of – stems from the Latin for road. And the new ViaNolaVie is taking us in new directions indeed. A collaboration between NolaVie and Tulane University, ViaNolaVie brings you all the erudite and lively content you’re accustomed to enjoying on these pages, plus a whole lot more. It features curated stories not only from the NolaVie writers you love to read, but also new bylines --  by students and colleagues at Tulane, by  community and cultural partners, by local educational institutions.

In the days ahead, typing in the NolaVie.com URL will take you right to the ViaNolaVie home page. Look for the NolaVie badge on stories written by your favorite NolaVie contributors. Enjoy all the new and expanded content about our city, its people, its idiosyncratic tendencies and why we love it here. And, since we're always open to a little lagniappe, the NolaVie newsletter that brings you curated New Orleans content will still arrive weekly in your in-box, now from ViaNolaVie.

We want to hear from you. We want your contributions. We want your ideas. Join the conversation at ViaNolaVie by subscribing as a user on the home page.

And, though it makes us blush a bit to say so, we'd love to continue our award-winning efforts with a little help from our friends. We've never included a pitch for aid in an announcement about NolaVie, but we're so excited about this new collaboration with Tulane that we can't help ourselves. Because we think that this kind of community-driven, collaborative, journalistic/academic partnership is the future face of news. Real news. Credible, conversational, hyperlocal news. So if you like that idea, consider throwing a little spare change our way by clicking the donate button below. Thank you!
