FREO’S VIEW SEVENTH BIRTHDAY!
It’s FREO’S VIEW seventh birthday today and I am pretty proud that my blog has become so popular in Fremantle.
The first two and a half years were hard and I published for only a handful of readers but now there are hundreds of followers and many regular readers, up to 10,000 a week!
In the last seven years I published 6,891 posts and thousands of photos promoting businesses, events, festivals, etc. and reporting on Council business.
It takes a lot of commitment to publish articles every day of the week and it requires me to be out and about in Freo daily and talk to a lot of people, and I rely on receiving information from the community about what goes on, what is planned and what they like and don’t like about our city.
I have published hundreds of comments, good and bad, as I tried to make Freo’s View a community forum. Some regular commenters decided to pull out when I asked for balance, fairness and no personal attacks, but I believe one can harshly criticise the City of Fremantle without name-calling.
I will continue to critically scrutinise Fremantle Council and the administration, but also give credit when credit is due. I will also keep fighting for good, beautiful and appropriate development and oppose ugly boring boxes.
Keep me in the loop on what goes on in Freo so that I can keep the community in the loop.
Thank you all for supporting Freo’s View. It’s a labour of love for which I do not charge a single cent.
