Actually, it’s long overdue. Given the obvious and digitally induced cultural shift, going the blog road seems to be the way to go. The reason for my reticence has been something many bloggers fail to understand – there’s a value in having editors and working with a journalistic team.
But sometimes, even the unreasonable man must bow to the inevitable. So after seven years of writing columns for the Aurora Beacon and Courier News, here it is! Jeff Ward unfettered, unedited and unapologetic. And yes! The mere thought of that scares me even more than it likely terrifies you.
We’ll talk about Kane County, we’ll talk about the upcoming elections, and we’ll talk about a lot more. I will endeavor to provide the same insights you’ve come to expect in my columns. In fact, this blog will be a lot like those the continuing columns, but a bit more personal.
What I can promise you is it will never be boring. My motto has always been to keep the conversation going and this is just the next step. Fasten your seat belts my friends, it’s gonna be an interesting ride!
