How Geauga News Started
Just under a year ago, the idea of Geauga News was formed. I had just moved home from Chicago and started looking around for a local resource to find out what was happening in the county. After searching for a little while, I was so disappointed that I couldn’t find anything that I decided, why not start my own site! And right then, Geauga News was formed.
I get tired of hearing about the bad things that are happening all the time. I live such a blessed life, with so many wonderful friends and family around me, it’s hard for me to be surrounded by so much negative news. Because of this frustration, I decided that Geauga News should only publish positive news about the incredible local people and businesses that are everywhere in Geauga County. There are so many wonderful stories of inspiration and hope right around us, if we just know where to look.
Then and Now
Like I’ve done with many projects before, I just dove right in and put up a website and a landing page late one night, and I started telling people about my idea of positive local news. I was surprised to find that the idea was very interesting to people, and we started meeting at Coffee Corners in Burton to discuss it. Now, just under a year later, Geauga News reaches over 40,000 viewers across all our different distribution points.
