I was working as a substitute teacher today and happened to watch a movie about evolution more than once.
That was plenty of time for my thoughts to drift to my website. What if Indiana Central News changed and improved over time due to demand, challenges and environment in order to thrive? ICN is just 2-months-old and already growing. I want it to get bigger.
What a good idea. It was that simple: I've decided to open up my subscription-only pages to the public for a while.
On the front page of Indiana Central News, you will still notice a PayPal link for donations. That would be much appreciated-- to help cover costs and bring more news to the readers.
ICN will continue to evolve. Stay tuned. As always, email me your story ideas, comments and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am enjoying this news site tremendously.
For those who haven’t followed its development since I started it in mid-February, ICN is run entirely by me. It began as a means for me to express myself as a local journalist after my former employer decided to close his business.
My passion is journalism, and I find myself very busy every day with this website -- as a reporter, photographer and a site manager. There are many more things I want to cover each day, but as a businesswoman, I must be practical. The show will go on, but the audience is limited.
While it’s something I enjoy and will gladly do personally for free, subscribers are needed to reach the public. Without more subscribers than ICN currently has, it’s necessary to prioritize what events and stories I can be part of as a news writer.
It seems everything about Indiana Central News -- from its concept, news sources, events and the press conferences-- has fallen right into place from day one. Moral support of this site has been very impressive from everyone, including the officials I speak with for stories on to the readers.
Proximity plays a role in prioritizing. Since I live right in the heart of Terre Haute, breaking news and events close to my home business will be more possible with limited funding, than those in outlying areas. If you’d like to see more coverage, your support of the $4/month subscription rate is imperative.
