North Forty News
Spring has almost sprung. This is my FAVORITE time of year. The transition from winter dormancy to spring life is one of the most exciting things for me to watch. I love crocus for this very reason. It’s generally the first flower I see, often sprouting out of a warm spot surrounded by snow. I have so many pictures of them popping up in our yard, simply because I’m so excited to see them every year! And I plant more and more of them every time I can. I even dig them up and divide them during the summer, so I can spread them everywhere. They don’t last too long, but, man, what a satisfying experience for me!
Now that I’m thinking about it, in a lot of ways, the crocus represents what I love about my professional life in running and growing businesses. A frozen or dormant business has life behind it, as soon as you give it a little water and warmth. And that’s exactly what I am doing with North Forty News. It’s exciting for me to see not only exponential growth month after month, but also to see our content consistently improving. Our journalists are working very hard to bring unique, interesting stories to Northern Colorado. We are trying extremely hard to be unique, while never losing site of our identity as a Northern Colorado-born and -owned publication.
I say it regularly in these columns, and I will say it again. We need your support. Through subscriptions, word of mouth, talking us up to advertisers, and bringing in new ones. These are all of the things that keeps North Forty News going, and GROWING.
I look at our current place in this world as having just sprouted out of the ground. Now it’s time to grow, flower, and spread our “bulbs” to other places in the yard, just like the crocus does every single year.
