Looking ahead to 2014
Every year on December 31, I take some time to thank all of the wonderful, loyal readers who make this blog possible.
Today, December 31, 2013, marks the fifth birthday of Sam Obar 180.
What an incredible five years it has been! I started out as just a lowly citizen interested in sharing political opinions with whoever wanted to listen, and now this blog has led me to get more involved with local government, now serving as a Town Meeting Representative. Along the way, it has been an adventure.
Thank you to all of my mentors, friends, supporters, readers, and Twitter followers.
In 2014, 180 will expand our partnership with WalpoleNews.com, and help improve WalpoleWords to hopefully boost conversation and readership (with the abstract goal of eventually generating revenue). That effort will involve other individuals, as well. We are very excited. Stay tuned for those changes, which I hope will be positive.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2013 had been to increase my Twitter followers by 100 (to at least 468 followers by December 31, 2013.) As of today, I have accomplished this particular resolution. Thank you to those who helped contribute to that goal by following me. Hopefully followers will increase even more by the end of 2014.
It is hard to believe it is already 2014 – it should be an exciting election year for our state and country. 180 will be there every step of the way.
As always, see you around town.
