A HEARTFELT thank you for all the messages of goodwill and support for the Bass Coast Post over the past two weeks. It was like going to my own funeral. No one was allowed to say anything bad about the recently deceased.
The Post got some wonderful presents, including a gorgeous hand-knitted hotty cover from Mary Whelan (best present ever!), a nude painting of the editor from Jeni Jobe and The Secondary Students’ Spelling Book from Liane Arno and Matt Stone.
“So you can correct our work,” they helpfully noted.
Ten years seemed a good time to assess where the Post is and how to keep it going for a bit longer, while allowing the editor to spend more time floating on a lilo and sipping pina coladas.
We could have got in a team of expensive management consultants to explain how to add value and leverage engagement via strategic staircases but my friend Linda Cuttriss came up with a workable plan for nothing. And all before breakfast.
So here it is:
- A monthly edition of the Post, as you know it, with your favourite writers, photographers and artists – plus some new ones, I hope. Think of this as the Post magazine.
- Facebook posts for timely stuff like events and newsy stuff that won’t keep. (Yes Linda, you will have to sign up to Facebook.)
- Email news flashes for the really important stuff – fires, election results, visits by the queen, etc.
Sounds like a plan. Let’s see how we go.
