Playing catch up
Time: 10:44 AM
I really can't believe the number of people contacting me with tips and suggestions on things happening in the area that are not being reported. It getting to the point where a number of individuals have suggested to me that there needs to be a weekly paper in Danbury that focuses on local issues. There are many things happening RIGHT NOW under the radar of most residents; unfortunately, the HatCityBLOG staff don't have the manpower to cover every issue the way it should be covered. In short, I've come a long way since the start of this site in 2005, but I'm still far away from my ultimate goal of providing COMPLETE coverage of every local issue in the Danbury area.
Since the News-Times is REALLY dropping the ball in terms of addressing local issues left and right, and WLAD has shrunk their news staff to unacceptable levels, the prospect for a weekly newspaper (or newsletter) in the area is realistic and I'm going to talk to contacts I have in the mainstream media, and those who tried to run a weekly paper in Danbury in the past about how best to go about establishing a new weekly in Danbury. Of course this will cost money (or investing in a start-up company) and there is always a risk in going down that road but I am encouraged by the steady increase of traffic and the amount of responses that flood my inbox.
Well, enough of that, the whole weekly idea is still in the concept stage and won't happen until sometime next year. Until then, I should get back to posting. I just wanted to take a small moment to apologize for the slow pace of the posts and a BIG THANK YOU for the crazy amount of feedback I'm receiving around the city.
Okay, back to the posts...
