“My PowerPage” is your power page; your own Front Page.
The Cardinal — Arlingtoncardinal.com has many standard PowerPages that are designed for a general audience, but what about a special PowerPage (My Power Page) configured especially for you? You can order your own specially designed PowerPage — a custom Cardinal newspage with headlines that are focused for your specifications. Your own Front Page.
PowerPages give you a more powerful way to absorb the news and information. Cardinal PowerPages combine SIX Facebook pages or SIX Twitter feeds (or THREE of each) from news sources, sports sites, entertainment sites, shopping sites, authorities, and businesses into one PowerPage. My PowerPage also includes an optional weather forecast for one US City, and up to 10 websites links. If you have any special requests, ask us … You might have a good idea for something additional to add to your My Power Page or another person’s My Power Page.
NEW … Your My PowerPage can now include latest video posts from CNN, FOX, and other news sites or other family-friendly YouTube channels.
Arlingtoncardinal.com has designed and published several favorite PowerPages for widespread use, but now you can select your own combinations to fit your specific needs.
In PC/Mac or Tablet view, the Facebook timelines or Twitter feeds for the sources are in a 3×2 format — that’s TWO rows of THREE Facebook page timelines or Twitter feeds.
In MOBILE VIEW, the Facebook timelines or Twitter feeds for the sources are in a 1×6 format — that’s ONE column of SIX Facebook pages or SIX Twitter feeds (or THREE and THREE).
Your device will automatically display the PC/Mac/Tablet format or MOBILE format.
With a minimum sponsor payment of $25 you can get your own Power Page. Place your order at Arlingtoncardinal.com/sponsor
