The next GivingCity Austin

After GivingCity 4, we’re suspending publication of GivingCity, the blog and the magazine. It’s an important move for us because it leads us into the next stage of the publication.

The next stage is, for us, a tricky one because we have considerably less experience in this arena. We’re now going to build a revenue model. The revenue model of traditional publishing doesn’t quite fit for GivingCity, but the problem is building one from scratch is a full-time job. And as you know, we already have those. So all that time we used to spend producing content we’ll now spend seeking financial support.

The good news is we aren’t lacking moral support. You’ve been extremely encouraging in your praise and sharing of GivingCity. Every “share with a friend,” every forwarded email, every re-Tweet, every press release, every comment on the blog has helped so much. I feel like I know every single one of our supporters because we’ve taken the hard road of earning one reader at a time.

Thank you. We’re excited about what GivingCity will become, and I can’t wait to share with you how it turns out.

PS: Please keep an eye out for GivingCity 4 coming soon. And as always, please let us know what you think.

  3. Thanks, you guys. Hopefully it won’t take long. I can’t stop thinking of story ideas!

  4. Monica, I would like to talk with you about doing one of these stories you don’t have time for – a one-time “will write for almost no money, because it’s my passion” offer!

    Just ask Christine Cox about my writing. And, my dependability as a writer.

    Hope to hear from you – great e-magazine,
    Terri Schexnayder
