I was sad, when I learned from Susan that she would be leaving this blog. To me, My Southborough has been invaluable. She did a wonderful job over the years of fostering a sense of community through the site.
What started for her as a hobby writing about her hometown, evolved into a resource that might well be called “Our Southborough”. (Don’t worry, I’m not changing the name.)
I was considering going back to work, but nervous about such a big challenge. She convinced me that this was something that I could do. (We’ll see!)
Since I want this site to keep going, I’m going to give it my best.
Southborough is my hometown. I share Susan’s love for it.
As for my perspective on town issues, I plan to follow Susan’s example of neutrality. My Southborough is simply a place for you to learn about the news affecting our town and share your comments, questions and opinions (as long as they are civil.)
The only opinions you should hear from me are in controversial posts like the best places to go for a walk in town.
That being said, I am not the superwoman Susan has been. Over this summer, I won’t be posting stories as frequently as Susan. I still have young children at home and this is all new to me.
I’ll need you to bear with me while I continue to learn what I’m doing. Hopefully, once fall rolls around, I’ll be able to provide the level of coverage you are used to.
I know that the Susan’s shoes may be too big to fill. I’ll just have to do my best.
If you have stories you want to share about town activities or residents, or if you have pictures of town events, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Susan for your amazing generosity in creating this forum, giving me this opportunity, and spending so much time organizing details and showing me the ropes.
