We’ve hit the end of the school semester, so we wanted to write you a letter about Morgantown Problems, both to thank you for your support and to share our plans for the future. It’s been a heck of a ride, and it’s time to reflect on the past and our future.
First of all, thank you for reading. When we started this blog as a project for our mutual journalism class, none of us expected Morgantown Problems to become this popular. We never expected the kind of participation, discussion and traffic that’s made this blog relevant to the WVU community we care so much about. From writing about homelessness in town, the roundabout, or the new Panera, we’re looking to write about what you care about.
We owe everything to your return visits and your participation in the comments, so thank you. Keep posting and talking about what you want to see covered. Let us know how we’re doing.
It’s because of you that we’ve decided to continue posting to Morgantown Problems, even after our class has ended. We want to continue serving you and the community – it’s both our passion and our duty.
As a result of our newfound independence from grading requirements, we’ll probably abandon our typical daily posting schedules. However, you can look forward to more in-depth posts, commentary on an expanded amount of local topics, and more original analysis. Without deadlines or posting requirements we can expand to greater serve you, our readers. We may even bring in new writers to our community. If you’d like to participate, email Bryan at bryanbumgardner (at) gmail.com.
As we go forward, stay tuned for more great posts in the new year.
– Bryan, Whitney, Karlea, Emily, and Maddi
