Chandler’s Ford Today has grown over the past 20 months since it started in March 2013.
To date, 56 writers have published nearly 570 posts. (Note: This number excludes 50 posts I deleted early this year as they were low quality posts which first appeared on the website.)
Chandler’s Ford Today didn’t start with a perfect plan.
However, by taking our first step in March last year, we are now slowly building a site with strong content that connects people and community through our stories and our actions.
Chandler’s Ford Today was an experiment. I didn’t even know if the site would succeed, if people cared to write, read or build it together.
That first step was tough. I make mistakes and stumble, however, we continue to write, connect, and make progress. Now with every single post we publish, we add value to both virtual and real communities.
Thank you for stopping by
I’m grateful that you stop by. I hope you continue to stay and build this site together.
Thank you for the support you have given me. For friends whom I’ve made through this website, thank you for your warmth and friendship, which I cherish.
