Interactive design provides existing 150,000+ fans and businesses with more engagement and local promotion.

365thingsAustin.com will be hosting an unofficial SXSW party to celebrate the redesigned site.

With over 7 million page views per month, 365thingsAustin.com web properties have more page views than any other Austin entertainment news site.

365thingsAustin.com, Austin Texas' most popular entertainment web page, has announced that it has completely redesigned its site and Facebook page to better serve its enormous online community.

The latest design and layout has all-new interactive aspects, including a video page, business directory, and a pick-of-the-week spot, in which the websites' writer and founder, Kristy Owen, will highlight one of her favorite places in Austin every week. The new website was created by Kristy and Space Chimp Media , the Austin-based internet marketing company with whom 365thingsAustin.com partnered with earlier this year.

"With over 7 million page views per month, 365thingsAustin.com web properties have more page views than any other Austin entertainment news site," said Charles Haggas, co-founder of SpaceChimpMedia.com. "This new website design really describes the level of commitment and entertainment that Kristy is willing to provide for her website visitors and her more than 150,000 Facebook fans."

Aside from the new look, 365thingsAustin.com will have interactive features to engage visitors and promote businesses in Austin and the surrounding areas. The directory page has information on many of the places Kristy has written about and links to the corresponding blogs. The video page will have regularly updated videos that accompany Kristy's blog and enhance the user experience. There will also be weekly contests where local businesses can participate to support Kristy's site and grow awareness of the Austin entertainment industry. Although the look and feel will change, the daily content of Kristy's blog will be completely unaltered.

"We want to make sure that all of Kristy's fans know that even though the look has changed and the site has extra features, the scope of Kristy's blog will not change at all," said Haggas. "We simply want to give back to the fans of 365thingsAustin by giving them more interactive content, and letting them participate in the 356thingsAustin.com experience."

The new features are expected to be updated by Wednesday March 2, 2011.To celebrate the new site, 365thingsAustin.com and Space Chimp Media will be hosting an unofficial SXSW event at Stompin' Grounds in Austin on Saturday, March 19. The no-cover event will feature multiple live bands, drink specials and prizes.
