As we approach the end of Precipice Fund’s third grant period and get ready to announce our Round 4 grantees on December 13, we’ve been checking in with our current round of grantees to see how their projects are progressing. The update below comes from Pushboard Events Weekly from late May 2016.
Pushboard Events Weekly continues to grow and grow beyond our wildest belief! After many preliminary talks with local developers and webmasters, we have decided to move forward with a planned full overhaul of the look and feel of the Pushboard e-mail itself. There were be increased functionality, calendar options and the potentiality to include more pertinent event details. Because the website is secondary to the newsletter itself, we have decided to re-do the site to be completely mobile friendly, and weekly Pushboard events to be viewable there as well. We will be designing and releasing sets of artist-designed postcards to help get the word out about Pushboard, so that we may continue to see events be user-submitted and therefore more serving the community.
New design to come! Due to the nature of Pushboard, it is hard to view at a standstill and is a moving thing. We have grown to over 700 subscribers! We have not missed a single week’s update since we started over a year ago.
