Hoboken Breakfast Nuggets: 12/10/2010
Reminder: Hoboken411 is more than just Hoboken
For instance, take your 11pm nightly news on a local station. While the focus of their production is their local viewership, they often talk about subjects that will likely interest everyone. Whether it’s important national news, or “odd stories” that are generally informative or entertaining to their viewing audience.
The same applies to Hoboken411. Never once have I proclaimed that each and every subject would directly related to or sourced from Hoboken, New Jersey.
Sure, the primary purpose of this site is grounded in the Mile Square (as you can see from the 2,000 business listings, frequent incident updates, local politics, and other comings and goings) – but since 411 has amassed a monthly unique readership well in the hundreds of thousands, it’s logical that the subject matter can – and should – go beyond the borders of this minuscule city.
While we are in essence a community bound by our geography and demographics – we also have eyes and ears that span the world. We can still be united by our common bond (not Reality TV and iPhones hopefully), and share interests that might be of use to one another (i.e., sites on the web-o-sphere, products, finance, music and much more).
So this goes out to the select few haters that have tried posting angry (and quite frankly vile) comments when I publish stories that veer away from our community: You came to this site voluntarily… And surely you cannot agree with 100% of any single publication you read.
So ask yourself this: Do you rant about everything your don’t agree with or find perfectly in line with your thought process? If so, that seems like a very sad way of living! If there’s anything I can help you do to make being alive on Planet Earth a bit easier, just let me know. I’d be glad to share my secrets for a happy and content life with you. You can start by downloading a Beatles song – you know, like “Let it be.” Now that it’s on iTunes, you might finally get a chance to hear it.
Slew of fun Friday updates coming today!
Fridays are the days that most people (who still have work) tend to kick back a bit more than usual, because they like to “ease into the weekend.”
Have a few fun distractions lined up for today. Enjoy!
Weekend Weather in Hoboken
OK sure, the nuggets today were just a brief soapbox moment, but that doesn’t mean it’s all about that! Here’s your forecast for the next four days. The big storm they were talking about a week ago didn’t materialize. Either way, if you want to be sure to see snow – you can always head north and get a ski house!
