We at the Kensington Chronicle believe that stories are the lifeblood of our community. And the story of Neverland is comprised of you, me, our neighbors, all the amazing and quirky residents of our beloved town. Neverland may be small compared to a bustling metropolis like Columbus or Cincinnati, but it’s big enough that citizens can rest assured that there’s always going to be a few nooks and crannies that you’ve yet to discover. And one of the goals of bringing the Chronicle into the digital age is to help each and every one of our residents feel more connected to our community. So for today’s editorial, I thought I’d take a minute to give a little primer on all of the ways you proud denizens of Neverland can use KenstingtonChronicle.com to connect with your neighbors.
Despite our small-town mentality, Neverland has embraced social media in a big way, and I, for one, couldn’t be happier! For me, it’s managed to make our small town even smaller. The people have spoken, and it seems Neverland’s social platform of choice is Twitter. So if you’re looking for a fun way to interact with some of your Neverland neighbors, and you don’t already have a Twitter account, you may want to set one up post haste!
If you haven’t already done so, click on over to our Town Ledger. Many of our residents have already added their names and Twitter handles, and we encourage you to do the same!
And if you’re hunting for a roommate, a job, or just trying to rekindle a missed connection, look no further than KensingtonChronicle.com’s Classifieds section.
What’s more, this week we’re launching an exciting new section to our site, a Twitter archive where we’ll be collecting select Twitter exchanges from our myriad of townsfolk. Our hope is that this will help our readers keep a finger on the pulse of Neverland, and enable like-minded Neverlandians to find one another. Keep your eyes out for that in just a few days.
And remember, your efforts to connect with the community needn’t be confined to our website alone! Many or our residents have personal Tumblr accounts, and my brother Michael, operator of the Kensington Chronicle Tumblr, will be doing his darnedest to follow all of you local Tumblrs. Some of you have even set up YouTube accounts and begun vlogging your experiences here in Neverland, not unlike like Kensington Chronicle’s own Wendy Darling, advice columnist extraordinaire. And from me and everyone else at the paper, we say keep it up! These videos, blogs, and social accounts really help us put faces to names, and help make Neverland one of the most tight-knit communities in all of Ohio.
As I’m fond of saying, stories are the heart of Neverland. So tell us your stories, Neverlandians. We can’t wait to hear what you’ve got to say.
