Making a Come Back Soon

Sorry to have not posted much of anything the past several weeks, but it looks like I'll be able to get back into the swing.

Some of you know that I publish several websites, on a wide variety of topics, of which I write most of the material. I earn a living selling advertising on those sites, and it's those sites that pays my bills and keeps Menifee 24/7 online.

Since I'm the primary employee on all these websites, I can only spend so much time on each site. Often times, I can't spend any time on some sites in order to spend more time on others. That was the case with Menifee 24/7.

Since the inception of Menifee 24/7, I haven't really earned any money from publishing it. It was mostly a community service that I provided through the support of my business. The beginning of this year, I opened up advertising on it, but it's been pretty tough trying convince local businesses here that advertising online is just as effective as advertising on paper.

My other websites are "global", in that they serve audiences all over the world. The advertisers who want to reach global audiences already understand the power of online marketing, and as a result, I've been able to run a profitable business from it.

So, the past few weeks I've been putting some extra time into my other websites in an attempt to increase their profitability, which includes increasing the audience, finding new advertisers, and improving the sites. Since I'm the only guy working on this stuff, I can't spend time on Menifee 24/7.

But I think I've reached a breaking point where I can spread my time to more of my websites. You should start seeing more activity from me on Menifee 24/7.

Remember, that Menifee 24/7 was originally conceived to be a "community-based forum". That is, it was originally my intent to get people in the Menifee Valley to sign up as "bloggers" and post new articles of their own, and get other people to comment. You can see on the left-side of this website, the names of a few people that have signed up and posted an article somewhere.

Eric Madrid has probably been the most active participant, and I want to thank him for stepping up. I also want to thank Holly Kay who has been active with sports and real estate related articles. I had hoped the other names would have been more active in posting articles here.

I welcome others to sign up and share their news, announcements, and opinions. I know we have teachers, business owners, construction workers, county employees, and many other professions, who all know something about our community that most people don't know. Use Menifee 24/7 to increase everyone's awareness of our community.
