December 7th, 2011-June 7, 2012 | It’s been just 6 sweet months since we launched NorthDelaWHEREHappening.com(NDH) and boy what an incredible journey this has been thus far. We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and thank each & every one of YOU, our loyal viewers, advocates and ambassadors. Your opinions, comments, expressions of sharing our posts via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+1, Email and more have been the most satisfying aspect of this adventure. We have learned so much about you and our LOCAL area. So we thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for your loyalty, dedication and for enriching our lives. We hope that you will continue spreading the word about NDH!
In April, we were honored with 1,281 unique visitors to our hyper-local website, which is totally incredible for a grassroots digital magazine produced by two(2) locals – yes there are just 2 of us. Curious as to Who is NDH? Read our Bios here! Rest assured that quantity is not as important to us as is Quality. More than 25% of you are returning to our site every month to see what we are up too and that’s an honor. What’s more, we have 274+ Dedicated Facebook Fans, and 132 curious Twitter followers. You, our viewers are LOCAL either in roots, geography or have a special affinity to our incredible northern most Delaware county of New Castle. You are viewing from your desktops, mobile devices and Ipads from all over this great nation. How lucky are we to have you? VERY! Please keep us grounded as we ride on this cloud of proudness.
What amazes us most, as we talk to some of our most loyal fans and close network of friends & family, is folks still don’t realize that we are more than just a single post to facebook, twitter or other social media sites. We offer an abundant online magazine at NorthDelaWHEREHappening.com, chock-full of robust content about all of your and our favorite things including hyper-local coverage of restaurants, events, special interests, people, and everything else fun & exciting in the area. If you haven’t yet, please take a moment to scroll through all of our categories like areas, food & drink, happenings, interests, people, calendar and more! Our events calendar is updated frequently for quick access by date and to appeal to your special interests by date. You might like what you find even MORE. And, if we missed a category you are dying to include, please let us know! Send your Readers Choice suggestions to [email protected]. YOU are what make us Happen!
Thank you to our LOCAL people making it happen – Greg Burton, Kristin McGuigan, Ed Lavelle, Naya Gonzalez, Sean McNeice, Molly Malone, Mike & Teresa Alfieri, etc – with us, you’ve opened up your memoirs, your personal accomplishments, your recipes for success and those stories have inspired, uplifted and intrigued us. We can’t get enough. Each of your stories has become instantly contagious!
If you’ve missed any of those posts, check them out under the People & Chef Tell categories. Keep it coming fans — if you know someone is who is “Making it Happen” – no matter how (if you think it’s special, we want to know), email your PEOPLE nomination to us for consideration [email protected]
Thank you to all the LOCAL museums, philanthropic organizations, fundraising teams, festival promoters, sports organizations, special causes, etc that have shared your most special events and promotions with us. Your outreach has been fantastic! Thanks for keeping us connected. We’ve got the LOCAL fever and want to share more enrichment with our community. Help us, help you. Please send more to [email protected].
ADVERTISERS & SPONSORS
Thank you to our LOCAL advertisers and sponsors – SHIFT, Bloomsberry Flowers, Premier Wine & Spirits, Famous Taverns, etc – without you, we couldn’t keep this site happening and the content as robust for our loyalists to enjoy. We have thoroughly relished partnering with each of you to help build your businesses, spread awareness of your unique services all while enabling us to offer exciting contests and special promotions. We have personally experienced great fulfillment from the successes we’ve helped you achieve thus far. Looking forward to building more great successes in 2012 and beyond!
HAPPENINGS MEDIA NETWORK
All our gratitude to Tina & Angela at the Happenings Media Network – without them and their team’s support, infrastructure, innovation, and guidance, our site simply wouldn’t exist. They are amazing and we are so grateful that we were presented with this opportunity to share and expand the Happenings Media Network of What’s Happening and Where to our North Delaware community. Did you know there are 14 other sister sites in the US? If you are traveling about, check to see if there is a Happenings site to sweeten your trip.
All our best,
Tracy Zigman & Suzy Casey, your NDH team
