Three plus years into the Roosevelt Island Daily, several things encouraged us to grow. Technical concerns got us thinking, but it's widening our outreach and bettering our presentation that gave birth to Roosevelt Island News @ Assorted Ideas

As a blogger and article writer for years before starting The Daily, I used Assorted Ideas, Large & Small as a central focus for my work online. In April, I combined a half-dozen blogs created for different purposes under a single umbrella. Merging in local stories of interest beyond Roosevelt Island naturally followed.

Now, with Roosevelt Island News, we'll have an additional outlet for spreading the word that blends with other, far less local ideas. We've been mixing and matching for a while, and this organizes it.

Roosevelt Island Daily is unchanged...

Although a grind at times, The Daily has been a success from Day One, financially and personally. My hopes for continuing local reporting in a way that challenges the status quo has worked out. It's been enlightening and will continue.

For the future, local emphasis will increase at The Daily, including improved event coverage and calendars. News and features will get a freer and more modern look as some of it switches over to Roosevelt Island News. It's a developing process, and we welcome your comments and suggestions.

The Daily has changed for the better since the day in April, 2016, when I started figuring out how to put together an online newspaper. That will continue as it will at our new space, Roosevelt Island News @ Assorted Ideas.
