I want to thank Examiner.Com, and especially Nate Ferguson, for the opportunity to be the Denver Aviation Examiner for the last 6 months. I’ve recently resigned due to time constraints, but it’s been a fun ride. I averaged over 5,000 hits a month and went out #4 in my category (Neighborhoods & Culture) nationwide for the year.
But my involvement with them isn’t completely over as I’ll still help the Longmont Examiner (my wife) on local issues – which is where I’ll be focusing the majority of my attention. The opportunity to come back to Examiner is always there (I was the former Longmont Examiner) and their site has a great future in front of them. It’s growing by leaps and bounds and is moving up the Internet charts.
All of my old articles will still be accessible and the links will remain on my websites. The question has been asked (several times for the last 6 months) if my podcast is coming back. It was nearly impossible to do it and the Examiner position at the same time, but anything’s possible. The downloads of the podcast have continued even after my last recording back in December, and the hits and video views on my YouTube channel and especially here at the blog have been steady and increasing (June 16th and 17th were two of the biggest days ever with the radio interview).
While I still believe the written word is king, some occasional audio and video is a possibility. I’ve also been invited to join a bigger Northern Colorado project (…more on that later), so time is always an issue.
…now, on to all the fun in Longmont, there’s plenty to cover.
