I’m a bit late in writing this, as the Milton Observer entered already a month ago into its fourth year of publication.
I’m pleased to report that we’ve had in our time tens of thousands of views and that our subscription list continues to expand. Most of our readers would be Milton people of course but, oddly enough, we’ve generated also some interest further afield, even from some residing overseas. Milton is just that interesting one supposes.
Ms. Bristol and Ms. Durham plan to continue with us, as does Mr. Aikens. (I’ve been struggling with some obstacles in providing direct logons for Ms. Durham and Mr. Aikens. Let’s hope that I can surmount those technical difficulties this year).
Mr. Plissken has been having a bit of a sabbatical lately, although he has been helping Ms. Bristol with her research. He just wearied of reporting the same inanities over and over again. (And it’s not like he’s getting paid for this). I know – because I’ve heard from you – that some of you do miss hearing his particular “take” on things. He’ll be back.
We’ve had the benefit recently of some valuable historical material from another guest writer and expect to publish a bit more from them, over the short term anyway.
Someone shocked me Saturday in reporting a minor cancellation furor at another publication based in a nearby town. Contemptable, really. I offered to publish the forbidden material here. That’s the way you handle that. I doubt I’ll be taken up on it, as we’re so small and, for them, so out-of-town, but you know I had to make the offer.
I’ve been also in communication with another interested party, who might want to provide some regular content for us.
Well, anyway, thanks for your interest so far and we’ll endeavor to merit it still in the coming year.
