, I was beginning my journey as editor of Solon Patch. What a ride it's been!
About 1,800 articles later, we are just getting started.
We couldn't have done it without you: our readers, our users, our contributors. Thanks for making our first year a huge success, and for following our coverage. From writing about the successes of to the deer culling debate at to the sometimes weird stuff in the blotter to everything, we've enjoyed the ride. I hope you've had fun too, and left feeling more informed about your community.
In the last year, we've worked hard to spread the word about Patch, about the unique opportunity we're offering to the Solon community -- a place where the community can come together and not just find out what's going on, but become a sort-of virtual town hall where neighbors can talk, plan and make Solon a better place.
Our mission is to make Patch a (free!) service that you can't live without. No way are we there yet: We've only been around for a year, and we know that we have a long way to go to get there
So let's use this space to tell me what you like about Patch and, most importantly, what you think we can do better. Head down to the comments section and tell us what you think.
And as always, you can reach out to me if you have any news tips, feedback or anything else. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and my cell is 440-289-4381.
