The past few months have been busy ones. Since August, we’ve launched this Construction Diary, have recruited 27 bloggers (and counting) to write for us, and one-by-one have been letting Spokanites know about SpokaneFAVS.
Behind the curtains, it’s been even busier. Our talented designers and web gurus are chipping away at creating the official website. I’ve seen pieces of it and I can confidently say you’re in for a wonderful surprise. This measly blog is nothin’ compared to what’s ahead.
Our administrative staff has picked two locations for our sister sites. Religion News Wilmington (North Carolina) is in the works and soon we’ll be working on Religion News Columbia (Missouri). And in 2012 even more sites will be rolling out!
So what can you expect in the coming year? Well, for one, you’ll be seeing a lot more local stories! I’m going home to Texas for the holidays, but when I get back I’m snatching up my pen and notepad and hittin’ the streets! I have a story list sitting above my desk with 18 items on it and am eager to start reporting. As editor of this site I obviously still have lots of administrative duties, but I finally have some time to write which I’m very much looking forward to. And our bloggers have lots of story ideas too!
Happy holidays everybody, I’ll see you next year!
