Revenue shortage puts Bridgeland News on hiatus.

Website to stay up while attempts to regroup are made.

Ok, so it was a long shot to expect a miraculous response to moving our news publication from print to online only. We did get 1,000 folk to subscribe to our weekly email newsletter, but we could only attract $1,500 of advertising to cover a $6,000+ budget. Obviously, this is going to take a bit more time and work, or a new economy, or a new model. Unfortunately, there’s no money to buy that time right now and Bridgeland News is going to have to take a break and regroup. Call it a hiatus in order to determine if resources and interest can be found to have Bridgeland resurfaced. Or maybe even re-papered.
