The Next Step

by on November 5th, 2007

A little over a month ago, Citizen Wausau was introduced to the community. We weren’t sure what kind of reception there’d be, or what kind of trials we might face. All we knew was that we wanted to reinvent what community in Wausau could be. There have been some definite ups and downs so far, but CW came out swinging and has been surprising all of us. When the curtain closed on October, we were left with over 4,000 visits and 15,000 pageviews from 13 countries. We’ve been immensely pleased and we owe all of our contributors a heartfelt thanks for sticking with us and helping us grow.

Now it’s time for the next step.

Marcus has been dropping hints for some time now about individual blogs. What does that mean? It means that anybody can register on CitizenWausau.com and have their own blog. And while we welcome your submissions for our Citizen Wausau blog, the Citizen Wausau Community is a place where you can write about anything, not just Wausau. Our man Dino is writing about his journey back to health. If you’re new to the blogging scene, I’ll be dedicating my blog exclusively to tutorials, tips, and bug fixes. Think of it as a neighborhood when WordPress.com and Blogger are booming metropolises.

Just one more thing; the blogs are still in beta. That means that not everything is quite up to snuff. But we think they’re ready enough for you guys to get in there, experiment, and have a little fun. If you see anything amiss, be sure to let us know. We’re also open to suggestions! By the end of the week we hope to tie up all of the loose ends and make this an official launch, but the majority of the work is done and we all agreed that it’s time.

That said, here are some links to get you started:
