With less than six months under our belt we are launching our 3rd major update to the “Downtown Bellevue Network” Web site. We hope you enjoy the site’s new style. We feel it more appropriately reflects Downtown Bellevue’s personality (Yes, Downtown Bellevue has a personality!).

The blog, news, stories, or whatever you have called it up until this point will now be known and branded as the “Bellevue Beat”. We will continually keep you updated with the happenings in and around Downtown Bellevue, don’t expect this to change.

Our team here at the “Downtown Bellevue Network” have a lot neat things planned for the future, and this new site will allow the infrastructure to do so! The “Bellevue Beat” is just the tip of the iceberg for what is in store for the future.

We still have an area for comments in each post, you must now click through into the individual story to access it.

We would love to hear comments and feedback on the new site and what other types of content you’re interesting hearing about. Leave comments in this post, or email us at info@downtownbellevue.net!

We have a very loyal reader base, and know the enthusiasm and passion we have for this city, and our site wouldn’t be possible with you!


  1. You should put the comments link back on the front page. Without that link it isn’t obvious that there is a comment section at all. Since almost all the stories on this site are less than 2 paragraphs, there is rarely any reason to click on the story link (and discover that there is a comment section).

  2. I love the new look!!

  3. Love the new look!! The header image looks fantastic and having the archives right at the top is real handy.

    I also agree with Anonymous: it’d be nice to have a comments link back on the front page. It’s not intuitive to people who aren’t constantly wired to click on the permalink for comments.

  4. I also agree with the previous posters. I really like the new look. However, the old site had not only a comment link, but the number of comments for that article. I would only click on the comment link if the comment counter was higher than the last time I was reading. Boiled down, that comment number is also of value.

    Keep up the great work.

  5. Site rocks! Can’t wait to see what you have in store.

    It’s already been said, but please put the comments section back.

  6. Please put comments link back on main page entries.

  7. We are looking into having comments appear on the homepage! Its something we always wanted…the technology stands in our way. Stay tuned.

    Thank you for the feedback and letting us know that you value that aspect of the site! We always love hearing your comments on the stories.

  8. Great job on the new header, but the comments thing has to be put back as others have said. Keep up the great work!

  9. I also want to the comments back on the front page. Saves me a button click.

  10. New look is refreshing! Loving the site, keep up the good work.

  11. Looks like the redesign is to accommodate more ad space…

  12. The stock has gained 150% from Oct 8, 2007 to Oct 22, 2007.
