About nine months ago, we launched BFB, armed with little more than an abundance of enthusiasm and ideas, a good writing staff and some seed money. Now, we have a loyal audience and our growth exceeds our expectations.
Because you have responded every step of the way (btw, we’re just a hair away from reaching our year-one traffic goal of 60,000 hits a month — and it’s only been 36 weeks!) we’re assessing and rerouting our course.
On Monday, you’ll notice some exciting changes at Baltimore Fishbowl.
All our columns — Bohemian Rhapsody, Hot House, Sartorial Baltimoreal and more — will be accessible from the homepage. We want to share your comments as they happen so they will land on the homepage, too. Our events calendar becomes more visible, too.
We’ve been pleased and surprised at the interest in real estate — so we’ll be adding products to enhance house hunting on our site. We’re also bringing on an ad sales force to meet the demand for more and better ad space.
In the near future, look for even more content on the site — plus, we will continue to increase content in the months ahead.
We love what we’re doing — mixing the serious news and the silly, trying to see the humor in life and figuring things out along the way — but please keep telling us what you’d like to read more of, and where we can improve. We are here to build an engaging, entertaining online community with you and for you — and for ourselves! We can’t promise we’ll take all of your suggestions, but we can promise we’ll take them all seriously — unless, of course, you ask for gratuitous swear words and gross scatological humor, that’s just not our style. We will however aim to post more photos of Lindsay Lohan’s worst plastic surgery decisions, if at all possible. Much love, the Eds.
