It’s been a year since 4Corners Brampton launched and we want to thank all of our readers. We couldn’t have done it without positive feedback from the community. Back when we started, it was tough to imagine starting a website like this.
No one was really paying attention to Brampton. And when they did, it was all negative. But we wanted to share the positives. We like to think we helped kick start a new wave of content centered around Brampton. Clearly others were inspired and started doing the same. We love that.
When we launched, our goal was to engage the young citizens of Brampton. We wanted to discover what to do in the city, and where to go on a Friday night. We wanted to learn about talented Bramptonians. We wanted to know the best places to eat from our very own local businesses.
In the past year, we’ve discovered all of that and more. Whether it’s finding the best vegetarian places in town, spending the summer watching movies at Garden square, or painting up a storm at art battle, there is so much to do in this city. Our team has learned about Brampton from a different perspective and found out so much we didn’t know. But there is still so much more to discover.
The 4Corners team is made up of volunteers. We don’t do this for the money and we don’t have ads. We don’t do this for page views or how many hits we get on the website. It’s really not about that, it never was and it never will be. Our currency is how engaged and connected the people feel after reading our content. It’s about how many business in Brampton they now discovered. It’s about how many events and how many talented people they’ve learned about. It’s about them feeling inspired by all of the successful individuals from their own city.
Our goal has always been to build a community. We’re doing this for you.
We want to thank you for being an important part of it. Especially the Reddit r/Brampton community, Now Creative Group for our brand design, Brampton Board of Trade, Mayor Linda Jeffery’s team, all of the city councillors, the amazing city of Brampton staff, Occasions Custom Cakes, Lab B, Edible Arrangements, PAMA Archives, OneBrampton, Redwood Marketplace, along with the amazing people that read our website, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. The list of people to thank can go on forever, but without everyone’s help in Brampton this wouldn’t have been possible.
Please don’t be afraid of giving us feedback and if you ever feel the itch, come write for us. Let us tell the rest of Brampton what you think.
Let’s make Brampton suck less, one article at a time.
