Letter From The Editor: About The New Look

Dear friends,

Austin has changed so much just since we launched the first iteration of our site in 2014, which means it is time for us to change as well. As you can see, that change is now upon us in the form of a new brand and website that, together with our sister site Free Fun In Austin, will represent us as a single entity known as the Austin.com Network.

Stephen C. Webster, Founder & Executive Editor of the Austin.com Network

Stephen C. Webster, Founder of the Austin.com Network and Proud Highway Media Group, and his wife Elisabeth Webster, Founder of Austin digital design agency Elisabeth.co

Between increasingly vitriolic election cycles, growing occurrences of natural disasters, and all the pressure points of living in one of the country’s fastest-growing cities, our local media diets here in Austin are too often chock-full of violence, crime, sadness, and loss. That’s why we are so thankful you’ve chosen to spend your time here on the Austin.com Network, where everything we do is designed to uplift.

That is what we hope to impart more than anything else: Our network is dedicated to making Austin as welcoming as possible to residents and visitors alike. You can read the full press release about our relaunch right here, but I think you will see just by exploring Austin.com and FreeFunInAustin.com, and visiting us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, that we really do put Austin and Austinites first. After all, we live here too, and we all want our community to continue being special.

Although change may be a constant in our city, the Austin.com Network’s disposition as a positive, community-focused resource remains steadfast. That’s why we especially value input from our friends here in town. If you ever have any questions or comments, I hope you won’t hesitate to reach out.

Thank you for reading! We love you so much.


Stephen C. Webster
