Thanks to the talented John Conde
, Notes on the State of New Jersey
is officially up and running! We met in Freehold yesterday, at Moores Tavern, to iron out a few more details and features of the new website. Contributors are at work on compelling, upcoming content. Links are working. And…we’re on our way!
I am very excited (if you couldn’t already tell!) about this project because through it, we will be working to keep New Jersey’s history alive while also preserving present-day New Jersey experiences. Inspired by the book written by Thomas Jefferson in 1781 called Notes on the State of Virginia, which was written as a series of answers to queries about the state from an inquiring party overseas, this project will answer questions about the Garden State and its history in a similar fashion. We’ll also be highlighting and promoting the state’s contemporary attractions, destinations, and the accomplishments of notable individuals.
It’s going to be a lot of fun!

The Jersey Girl site has a new look for spring courtesy of brilliant web developer, John Conde!
Conde, a Jackson, NJ resident who has been a web developer for 12 years, understood that I wanted to maintain the original simplicity of the site, but also incorporate a little Jersey Girl personality. He worked his magic, and I am so thrilled with our new color scheme.
If you have questions about web development, John Conde is the person to go to. His tutorials on Authorize.Net (a payment gateway provider) are a beneficial resource for many web developers. You can find out more about him and follow his blog, containing both personal and technical content, via his website, http://www.johnconde.net/.
