This is my second stint in Victoria, and I'm glad to be back. As the new managing editor for digital at the Victoria Advocate, I'll be pushing a digital agenda in the newsroom.

What does that mean? Well, for starters, we need to incorporate more of a digital-first attitude. Everything we do here -- as has it been for the past 165-plus years -- is designed to put out a newspaper. That means every detail, mostly, from workflow to culture, is about the printed product.

We are not just a newspaper anymore. We are a progressive media company with multiple websites, including and marketplace. We want to push ourselves to be relevant in the digital world so we can serve the Crossroads for another 160 years.

So I'm interested in knowing what your thoughts are on our digital products. How can they better serve you? What do you like? Dislike? What would you like to see?

In the meantime, I'll leave you with this interesting look at cliche photos on Instagram. I'm betting the same applies to Facebook.
