I used to refer to the power duo of Greater Grafton and GraftonTimes.com as “Jenn’s media empire.” I’m beginning to feel like that’s not quite as much of a joke anymore.
Today, we launched TheDailyShrewsbury.com and it covers — you guessed it — the town of Shrewsbury. I hired a fantastic new reporter to cover the town. And we’re only going to have one week at CentralMassNews.com to get used to having four sites (the other two, of course, being TheDailyMillbury.com and NorthbridgeTimes.com) because on Monday, we’re launching TheDailyAuburn.com and TheDailyLeicester.com.
Even if you haven’t seen our sign up on Dr. Crossman’s old office, you’ve probably guessed we’ve outgrown our adorable little office at the top of One Grafton Common. We’ll be moving to the more spacious quarters — with a view of Lake Ripple, conveniently located next to the liquor store, what more could you ask for a growing media outlet? — in February.
What does that mean for Grafton? More places to find out what’s going on in the nearby towns, mainly. Right now, I’m looking at a small stack of notebooks with four Grafton-centric stories that must get written for GraftonTimes.com, I hope, today. I have interviews in town lined up for most of the week. The batteries in the Greater Grafton Camera are charged and ready, so if you see me pointing it your way, smile.
And when we are finally settled into the new digs, anyone up for margaritas at Cancun?
