I have been having a blast with my online paper. I have a couple of people helping me get things rolling now, so it is gaining momentum. I am getting more and more responses from businesses wanting to participate in my weekly contest.
The other day I took some time to go to a downtown event and introduce myself to some of the business owners. I gave each one of them my card, so they can check out my newspaper site. A few of them said that they had received my previous e-mail notices and would be contacting me to participate in my contest.
This weekend the Feather Fiesta Days will be held here in Oroville. This is a yearly, week-long celebration- a sort of Founders Day for my hometown. The town will be abuzz with people enjoying the festivities. I will be handing out fliers to announce the newspaper site. I have a couple of volunteers who said they would help me with this.
I am so excited about my new venture. I can't wait to see how this unfolds.
