Welcome to 2018. Can you believe West Sound SportsPlus is already three months old?
Neither can I.
I took a big chance in starting this website in September, and it has been proven to be one of the most challenging times of my journalistic career. From learning to build a website to building a brand and marketing, it’s been a whirlwind.
It has also been incredibly fulfilling, and I am so grateful to all my readers. You make it worthwhile. I couldn’t have done it without you.
In part because of the success that I have seen, I made a decision that I believe is the right time for the growth of our site. Yes, I do consider this a community endeavor, and I will not waiver from that belief.
Starting Monday, Jan. 8, West Sound SportsPlus will be moving to a subscription-based website. In just three months I have seen the incredible growth of this site. It proves to me that there is a desire for local sports content in all its forms.
The subscription rate will be $4 per month, that breaks down to one dollar a week to view all the content on the site, or if you prefer $1.95 per article. A per article subscription works well for family and former residents who are out of the area and want to read about their grandchild and extended family but may not have an interest in all content that is available.
I will continue to post live content on various forms of social media like Facebook and Twitter.
I have many story ideas coming this month that I hope you enjoy and find enlightening, encouraging and gives us all a stronger sense of the awesome area in which we live.
