Special Post from WOTM…

Hello WOTM followers, this is going to be a rather unusual post…

This week, due to health reasons, I’m going to be taking a little break from the weekly, weekend and nightly happenings. (note: some random posts may still pop up on social, but the big lists will be on hiatus) I understand the timing of this is strange after having such an amazing few weeks of gaining even more followers, but this is something that I need to do to heal up a bit.
When I started WOTM in 2011, I never dreamed it would become as big as it has and for that I am truly grateful. The past few weeks you may have noticed that I’ve been putting even more time into the site and social posts. There’s been a whole lot going on! (YAY!) But many do not know is that two years ago (next week) I became very ill and it has been life altering. No worries, I’m still here and still fighting, but every now and then, it takes a toll and sometimes I need to step back a bit. So this week will be a ‘pull back’ week. It will help as well as Fall/Winter time there is a whole lot going on, so taking this break will be a good time to regroup.
While I do this, I’ll also be reevaluating some of how WOTM is done. Currently we do not have any advertisers. This needs to end. Frankly, doing a site for almost 8 years without any revenue gets old and when it becomes an almost full-time venture, it’s really time to think things over. I’d love to keep this site up as a resource for Stamford folks to continue to come and find out all the exciting things that go on in our city, but it’s getting tougher to do this without ads. It’s especially tough now that I’m unable to attend any of the events that I’m helping to promote, so I hope you’ll understand my going public about this.
It’s a deep love of Stamford that started this site and we support it fully…it’s why we’re still here, and why we’d like to continue on. We hope you would like us to continue on as well!
I personally would like to thank all of you. For your support, your follows, your shares and your messages over the years. I keep saying how we wouldn’t be here without our followers and it really is the truth! It seems unreal to me that we’ve been doing this site for as long as we have and I thank each and every one of you.
If you are interested in advertising here on WOTM, please drop me a line at: onthemenuct@yahoo.com
One more thing…we will be adding product to our online WOTM shop so be on the lookout for the links! 🙂
Thanks for Keeping it Local Stamford!
