The Fargo Beat
Fargo-Moorhead Social & Word of Mouth Network
August 8, 2013
This edition of the Beat marks our 5
anniversary. That means five years of helping you folksfind out what is going on in our metro area. Our first edition was 1 ½ pages and went out to alist of about 40 people, compiled from friends. The list is now over 720. We started out withtwo writers, increasing to four shortly after. We are currently at three writers and have beenhoping to get that to four or five, to help ensure we continue on with publishing the Beat.
Throughout the years, as writers, we’ve generally stayed somewhat anonymous, attempting to
inject personality into the Beat. Treating it like our own alter egos. A bit like being Oz behind acurtain, but without claims of power and a cool green suit (we wish!). So since we never knowhow much longer the Beat will continue (we never imagined five years),
we’ll take a moment to
step out from behind the curtain and introduce ourselves to those of you who may not knowus. The two founding writers are still contributing
John Machacek and Camille Weber. Theother current writer is Erica Johnsrud. Our two past writers are Aaron Hill and Kris Kerzman. Soif you run into any of us, feel free to share any comments about the Beat
as long as they areonly very flattering and make us blush, or buy us a drink, or make us a casserole, or give a firm
handshake, or maybe a pat on the backside (Aaron only please). We’ve enjoyed promoting all
the things happening in this great city of ours. Local activities and the dynamic-ness of ourcommunity seems to be growing, so we only seeing your opportunities getting better. Stayclassy!
