Changes afoot at SGFNews

Since 2009, I have been working with students, fellow journalists, and community members to try to create a community news site that brings together original content, aggregated lists, and submitted features.

We’ve had some successes. Our Twitter account (@sgfnews) has topped 2,000 followers, and we built a small but loyal following with our roundups on this site.

But my biggest hope — having dozens of contributions from the community — hasn’t happened. We did some town-hall meetings in the beginning and met with local groups, but despite a lot of interest, few people found the time to contribute to the project.

So we’re going to take a break from the roundups as we develop a new platform, one that makes it easier for people to tell the stories of our community. Keep an eye here; we hope to be rebooting the site in the next couple of months.

Thank you for your continued support of our efforts. This site doesn’t work without you.

Jonathan Groves
