This week the Auburn Examiner turns one! I’m proud of the things accomplished this year. The Auburn Examiner has grown a lot since our the very first post. I think what has grown the most is my love for Auburn, and my dedication to this endeavor I began a year ago.
To all those who have supported the Auburn Examiner, THANK YOU! From our newest reader, to the very first subscriber: you are why we do this. Without all of you, We would not be able to do any of this. THANK YOU!
Of course, there are things I’d like to have done this year that didn’t get done. There are articles I look back on and think how I’d do them differently now with what I’ve learned. Growth can only happen if one takes the time to learn from their experiences. The Auburn Examiner will continue to grow, to experiment, and to learn what suits us best. We’re grateful for the feedback and patience from our readers as we do.
Every interview, interaction, research topic, or article published I find myself hungry for more. To do more, to learn more and to share more about this great city and all that it has to offer. I am excited at the things we have planned for the coming year and years beyond that. I hope you’ll continue to join me, and the rest of the Auburn Examiner contributors, as we continue this wonderful adventure!
