Wow! I can’t believe that it is 2022. It seems like yesterday that I was hired on as a temp to take over for a temp that was sick. Now here we are 20 years later, and I have a position that not-even-old-enough-to drink-Steph could have only dreamed of! This year we begin our 20th
Wow! I can’t believe that it is 2022. It seems like yesterday that I was hired on as a temp to take over for a temp that was sick. Now here we are 20 years later, and I have a position that not-even-old-enough-to drink-Steph could have only dreamed of!
This year we begin our 20th year. There are some arguments about this in the office. So let me explain. We began in mid-January of 2003. That was ‘Volume 1’. So, while technically we won’t hit our 20th anniversary until January of 2023, this week begins our 20th volume. Make sense? Yeah, I don’t really get it either. Just think of it the same way we calculate centuries — year 100 began the 2nd century…
We’ve made a fair number of changes here over the years, but at our core we are still abiding by the same philosophy that we started with. A family-oriented publication that strives to bring you all the good our community has to offer.
Thank you for sticking with us for the last 20 years. The unwavering support we get from the community never ceases to amaze me.
As we roll into another year, I once again send out the call for your contributions! If you, or someone you know has a great story to tell, please let me know! If you, or someone you know has done something amazing in or for our community, please let me know! We want to help share your stories. As always, feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I also want to thank all our advertisers. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. The support that you given us over the years has been astounding. We all work so hard to put out the best publication possible each week so that you see more customers and so that our readers are happy. It’s amazing to see all the advertisers that have been with us from the very beginning. The foundation that they helped us build is how we keep going every week.
Well, it wouldn’t be the New Year without some New Year’s Resolutions. I am far better at making resolutions than I am at keeping them, but alas, I try every year.
In honor of Webb Weekly’s 20th Volume, I bring you my twenty 2022 resolutions (in no particular order)
– Keep my houseplants alive for another year.
– Drink more water than coffee.
– Take more naps.
– Watch more cute and cuddly kitten videos on YouTube.
– Eat more fruit… snacks.
– Drink more water than whiskey.
– Visit the grocery store more often than restaurants, especially when free samples are being served.
– Put more embarrassing items in random peoples carts while shopping at Wal-Mart.
– Drink more water than beer — I think I’m getting off track here.
– Pet more cats.
– Be more assertive — if that’s okay with you guys?
– Exercise (my right to eat) more (tacos).
– Start following my list and stop letting Target decide what I need.
– Be more optimistic by keeping my cup half-full — with either vodka, or whiskey.
– Finally, to accomplish all the goals of 2021, which I should have done in 2017, because I promised them in 2016 and planned them in 2015.
OK, OK, fine, let’s do some real ones:
– Try to learn to play Fortnite with my boys.
– Eat healthier, exercise more.
– Try to get some traveling in.
– Stick to my budget and start doing more saving.
– Find a way to help our community/volunteer with a local organization.
I hope you all enjoyed your New Year’s, and that you are making plans for an amazing 2022. I hope you all have a happy and healthy New Year! And may all your problems last as long as your New Year’s Resolutions!
