We've Reached Our Goal!

by Alex Mulcahy

I'm pleased to announce that Grid reached its goal of 500 subscribers by June 30. Woo-hoo! On behalf of everyone who works on Grid, I'd like to express our sincere and complete gratitude for the support. So many people coming out of the woodwork in our hour of need. I'm speechless.

This is a great start, but Grid is by no means out of the woods. Like everyone else in the media world, we are tasked with continuing to evolve editorially while simultaneously securing new revenue streams. 

I'm cautiously optimistic that we can, with a lot of hard work, pull it off. But I can tell you for sure that we wouldn't be trying right now if we didn't see the support from the community. If you like what we do and haven't subscribed yet, it isn't too late. We will continue to lean on you for support and guidance while we figure out the best ways to serve the community.
