Starting Sunday, August 1, we’re shutting down Locally Grown for a month or so. This includes the blog, the membership sideblog, the comments, and the radio show/podcast. The site will remain up with this blog post ‘sticky’ at the top.
I need to launch a new project for my own business but I can’t seem to get it done when I take 2-3 hours/day having so much fun with Locally Grown. I mean that seriously. I love LoGroNo and am often humbled by the fact that it attracts a tribe of 8-9,000 people each month with hundreds of comments.
Ross and Tracy are swamped with their work and other civic duties, so it seemed like a good time to take a break. When we return, we hope to have a fresh perspective on what else we’d like to do with the site. We’d like your ideas, too.
In the meantime, the civic blogosphere in Northfield has plenty of places for y’all to contribute and engage. First and foremost is Northfield.org because anyone can submit a blog post there. I think they have a guideline that the blog post itself can’t be an opinion piece but the attached comment thread can be. So for example, anyone could submit a blog post such as “Council candidates appear at forum… Let’s discuss it here.”
If you’ve become a member of Locally Grown, thank you, thank you, thank you. We’ll extend your membership an additional two months. If you’d prefer to cancel it, Contact me. Between now and Sunday, you can still submit a blog post.
Got questions or comments? Attach them here before Sunday.
