Journalism is about sharing a sense of community and sharing the news of the community. In a time when so many small town, locally-owned papers are shutting down the presses and shuttering the doors, the TownePost Network has kicked convention. The Network highlights cities and towns around Indianapolis by publishing monthly magazines that are included in residents’ mailboxes for free.
For more than 16 years, I have worked with national publications highlighting the equine industry all across the country. When given the (rare) chance to profile a fellow Hoosier, I always jumped at the chance, eager to share my own “Hometown Hero.” Working with local publications to showcase my locale was something I never really knew would be a viable possibility. That was until I dug to find out who published the Noblesville Magazine and Westfield Magazine that I received via the U.S. Postal Service.
I’m proud to now be part of the TownePost Network! Through the first quarter of the year, I have interviewed small business owners, mothers tackling side-hustles, businesses debuting and businesses struggling to rebuild after the pandemic shutdown. I’ve been able to give a boost for sales, announce grand openings and share experiences for my fellow Hoosiers in Westfield, Noblesville, Carmel, Fishers, Geist…
It is an assignment that I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to doing. I applaud the people behind TownePost Network for seeing where a community was desiring for outreach, small businesses searching for a voice and starving writers yearning for work.
My first articles have already been published, and I can’t wait to share more as they are up, as a way to spread the word about these small businesses.
