Dear readers: Three and a half years ago, Julia and I started this site because there was a giant vacuum for information about what was happening with governments, schools and businesses in northeast Johnson County. At launch, we had a narrow focus on Prairie Village, Fairway and Mission Hills. When the talented Dan Blom joined the team in 2012, we were able to expand our coverage to Mission, Roeland Park, Westwood, Westwood Hills and Mission Woods.
It’s been a lot of fun. And based on the feedback we get from readers — and our growing audience figures (more than 35,000 unique visitors each month on average) — it’s provided something of value to northeast Johnson County residents.
And I’m happy to report that, thanks to our great readers and the local businesses that want to connect with them by sponsoring the site, in addition to being a lot of fun, I’m now able to make shawneemissionpost.com and associated projects my full-time occupation.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the display advertising sponsors listed below and our weekly sponsored columnists, Chad Taylor of the Taylor Made Team, Lance McCarthy of ReTouch, and Drs. Greg Sweat and Megan Schlick at Shawnee Mission Health. And we hope you readers will let them know you appreciate their support of the site as well.
THANK YOU ALL! I’m excited to be able to spend more time covering what’s happening in our community!
