Two years ago, I sat down in my bedroom, grabbed my laptop and decided to embark on a journey that revolved around my beloved New York City. When I started this expedition, I had no clue who would take the ride with me. I hurled posts into the noir void of cyberspace, hoping that someone would read them and enjoy what I had to say. I sacrificed time, relationships and the opportunity to make money for a dream. I guess you can say that like the Man of La Mancha, I was dreaming an impossible dream. But thanks to my FAMERS, my dreams are steadily becoming reality.
F.A.M.E NYC is essentially a grass roots publication. We work on a budget that would not be considered a shoestring. We do not have money to pour into advertising the site nor do we have funds to do giveaways or throw lavish parties. But somehow people have found us and decided to stay loyal. F.A.M.E NYC has grown exponentially within the last year. Each day we acquire new FAMERS, receiving new hits. Thanks to you, F.A.M.E NYC’s numbers have doubled from what they were last year.
For an individual who makes her living with words, there are no words to express my heartfelt appreciation for all the support F.A.M.E NYC has received. When I try to reach out for words in my mind, they escape me. I am overwhelmed with emotion. I cannot help welling up with tears. I have no children, and besides my six-year-old pit bull, F.A.M.E NYC is my baby. The reciprocity I feel from you FAMERS is phenomenal. To know that somewhere there are individuals following F.A.M.E NYC, watching my baby grow, in different places all over the globe is astounding. And to see the ocular proof of our growth is even more amazing.
Two years later and F.A.M.E NYC is still here – still growing. I hope you will continue to grow with us. Last year, I suggested we shoot for the stratosphere; next year lets blast past it. Once again, I promise to keep my pledge to provide you with excellent content and bring you the best that New York City has to offer. I hope you will promise to continue to take this excursion with me and bring a few more of your friends along for the journey. Next year is shaping up to be another great year for F.A.M.E NYC. Also, we have a few surprises coming your way, so stay tuned.
This evening I will be celebrating F.A.M.E NYC’s second anniversary by ensuring I keep my pledge to bring you the best that NYC has to offer. This evening I will be attending a preview of Seminar, the new play starring Alan Rickman. I wish you all could be with me, but one thing is for sure, I will tell you all about it.
