Tomorrow, I’ll be joining another Herald staffer to interview a person within the industry. Because of this, I’ve been spending the night wracking my brain to scrounge up questions to ask, and preparing our equipment for the recording. It’s stressful, it’s time consuming, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun all the same.
As I settle into a more administrative role, I’m finding that doing things like arranging meetings and acting as a catalyst to fulfilling the needs of our writers is becoming a more important aspect of our growth and development. I won’t lie, though. Tasks like making appointments, negotiating with partners, and reporting on press releases don’t offer the same thrills as reporting on the market’s various twists and turns. Still, there’s a certain satisfaction in seeing something we’ve built up grow and flourish. Seeing our readership rise from month to month, and hearing the positive chatter is exciting. It shows that we’re doing something right, and that we should continue to blaze forth.
But it also means that we shouldn’t get complacent. As we grow, I want to see that our pace is both healthy and consistent. I understand that, as the one making critical decisions, I need to remain vigilant, and keep from falling into pitfalls that could hurt, or even doom our publication to obscurity.
So, going forward, I’ll be taking steps to ensure that our quality remains high, and that our writers have as few boundaries as possible to completing their tasks. It’s going to be a bumpy ride, but I feel…nay, I know that we’ll be able to continue to entertain and inform readers across the globe.
So, as always, I want to thank you for your readership – you’re the lifeblood of this site, and we value your readership and your thoughts.
