Many of us have thought how we can make a difference in the world. I have been thinking of this for a number of years. What could be done? I began my trek with a couple of small websites. One was centered on a local area highlighting things to do. I was tired of people saying there wasn???¦??t anything to do in the area, so I set out to change that. That was nine years ago. During that time, my wife tells me a little gray has started showing (I don???¦??t see it.) Interestingly enough, someone else just came up with the same idea a couple of months ago and a new website. I wish her the best in making it go.
The second site covered a little larger area of the Intermountain region. I wanted the information to be real and from the heart. It was a good direction, but still it wasn???¦??t quite right. During that time, I came up with the concept of Area-Info.net. After developing and fine-tuning the concept over several years, the programming started.
As we got closer to having the site ready, I began to show some people and get some feedback. From the feedback that I received, it appeared that we were on the right track and the learning process during the past nine years was paying off.
So, where does ???¦?wanting to make a difference in the world???¦? come into play? I am a news junky. I watch news on the television. I read news on the internet. If there is a newspaper lying around, I read it. It might be a quest for information, but it is also a quest to find local news. Why? There is so much news from the ???¦?establishment???¦?, that I wanted to get the local news that comes from the heart and illustrates the fiber of a community.
Area-Info.net is the website to share the local news as you see it and then share it with others who want to know. This is getting news from the fiber of the community ???¦?? you.
Will I make a difference in the world? I doubt it.
Can you make a difference in the world? Yes. With one story at a time, you can make a difference by letting people know what is going on in your community, government, education, the world, and how you feel about it.
Together, we can make a difference.
