Just wanted to reach out to everyone who’s been reading and following Columbia City Source and say thanks for checking out the site. Last night’s accident at Rainier and Edmunds caused a surge of readership and I figured it was a good time to take advantage of the interest and ask for a little feedback.
The site’s been up and running for about a month now, with readership steadily increasing and more and more people checking it out both through the Facebook feed and the site itself. A number of involved neighbors have been in touch, looking to play a role in contributing content in a specific area and helping to get neighbors engaged in the active dialogue of the neighborhood. If that’s something you may be interested in yourself (or if you have some expertise you’d be willing to share) be sure to be in touch.
We’ve also got plans to continue to build the site, move beyond a simple blog, add more features, and try out a couple of platforms to help foster active discussion and engagement.
As we work on that expansion in the background, it’d be great to hear from you, the engaged neighbors of Columbia City, to find out what you want in a neighborhood website (as well as what you don’t) and what we can do create a useful site that helps the neighborhood connect and stay informed.
If you’ve got an idea, suggestion, need, question, or thought, please let us know in the comments.
