SoGlos celebrates new relaunch

Substantially more than a lick of paint, SoGlos has been totally transformed as part of its September 2012 relaunch. See exactly what’s changed before your very eyes.

You don’t have to be Sherlock to notice there have been some huge changes at SoGlos, following the online magazine’s official relaunch today, Monday 24 September 2012.

There’s a new iconic logo, fresh colour scheme and sleek topography, plus attention-grabbing new advertising positions and stunning use of photography – all giving a stylish nod to SoGlos’s quality magazine feel.

SoGlos’s new dedicated sections include Food, Drink, Hotels, Comedy and Culture, as well as improved Theatre, Music, Film, Children & Family, Sport & Outdoor and Health & Beauty sections – each individually packed with new and improved features.

Readers can expect more professionally-written event previews, reviews, guides and news stories which SoGlos has become famous for – all still available free of charge, 24 hours a day – and Monday’s exceptionally popular newsletter has been given a gorgeous makeover too.

There’s also more cracking county competitions and special offers in Gloucestershire to look out for, with collated news, reviews, photo galleries and guides also now easily findable with the new quick links at the top of every page.

Readers will also benefit from a more intuitive user experience, with intelligent related content suggestions aiming to keep you entertained and informed for longer – so every time you read a theatre event preview, for example, you’ll find more performances suggested below.

The new events finder – just one click away on the right-hand corner of every page – provides quick and easy access to the finest selection of arts and entertainment events taking place in Gloucestershire – with search results including a new ‘Free’ icon to indicate which events are gratis.

The new venues finder – again just one click away on the right-hand corner of every page – provides quick and easy access to a carefully selected local directory, with refined categories and enhanced features such as individual events calendars for venues, photo galleries, embedded videos and latest Tweets.

Plus, check out the improved interactive map, which uses the latest Google Maps v3 and Street View functionality.

And finally, the SoGlos team loves social media so as well as seeing real-time publishing of our own Twitter and Instagram feeds, readers can also now Like, Tweet and Share all of the online magazine’s content with their friends more readily. Those liking SoGlos on Facebook might also see their face on our homepage!

Whether you’re head-over-heels for the hot new SoGlos or think there’s even more ways we can improve the most influential guide to Gloucestershire, don’t hesitate to send your feedback about the relaunch to

We’d also like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest thanks to all of our readers and advertisers who’ve helped ensure SoGlos’s phenomenal success.
