We are a YEAR OLD, PROUD of ourselves and YOU.

They say the journey of thousand miles, starts with one simple step. And, yes, we have made it in our first year and hope to do so, even for years to come. It was never easy, but anyhow; there is nothing that is good or excellent that is worth it that comes easy. We are here now and hope we do exactly that for the long haul.

As much as we would have liked to talk or review the past challenging year of our establishment, look at our challenges; disappointments; frustrations; humiliations and in the same way; our victories; our willingness to succeed, milestones or achievements, the past is the past and it belongs there. What happened last year is in the past, we are now looking forward to today and tomorrow. Yes, life can be understood backward but it must be lived forward. All those lessons learnt, will propel and encourage us to make the success of our online newspaper.

I would like to thank our FS News Online Team, for their sacrifices, commitment and dedication to these project. Even when times were tough; close to losing hoping and giving up, you persevered and became much stronger in spite of hardships we experienced. The success or failure of this project depends on you. I hope this year, you will work even harder than last year in order to see our vision, mission and idea becomes a success.

We take our hats off to the many people who invite us to cover their events, who sent us media invites and press release, to those who are also outside our province who recognize our work and invite us and send their media releases. These Communicators; Marketing; Media and Entertainment companies, come from different Provincial and National Government Departments, Private Sectors, NGO’s, SAPS and Agencies, who work hard to give us the information that we share. Keep supporting us and with you on our side, we can only grow into a force to be reckoned with.

Our biggest gratitude and BIG THANKS, go to our loyal readers. The YOU in us. With YOU this year, our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts keep on getting new likes and followers. With you by our side this year; we can proudly say, we reach on average, 320 000 people on monthly basis. May YOU continue to support us more this year. Without YOU by our side, we are nothing. Without YOUR feedback and interaction, we are nothing.

This year we aim to be better; bigger and stronger. We aim to grow our funders’, donors’, sponsors’, readers’ and advertising customers’ base. This year, we definitely want to grow FINANCIALLY, emotionally, socially, spiritually, physiological and intellectually while contributing to others in some positive ways.

We might be unsure of where we are going, but we definitely know for sure, where we come from. Even from the start, we were under no illusion that the process of achieving our objectives, purpose, idea, visions and mission, will be plain sailing as hard work still needs to be done.

Yes it is our first YEAR ANNIVESARY and we are celebrating and proud of it. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
