Our State of Affairs

Just wanted to give all of my readers a window our state of affairs here at The Caldor Rainbow.

If ever we fade into the black like our friend Keith Milford over at Malls of America (who mysteriously hasn't updated the site in almost a year), we'll be sure to go out with a generous farewell.

That won't be happening anytime soon.

Even if the updates aren't as frequent, I have no plans to abandon the site despite the last few months of radio silence.

Allow me to address a few things as of late. Being busy with life myself, it's unifyingly obvious our retail circle is undoubtedly in a slowdown with us included. My reasons might not stray beyond our affiliates: fuel and living costs have risen dramatically over the past month causing a drought in travel and with it new content. We've also run dry of content to focus on locally. We assure you we've got some plans for site updates, which will hopefully resume in the next months with windows of time visible to take such ventures.

We're still oriented in our goal and the site's past content and success is a testament to that. We will bring stories of interest to you, the readers, if you'll just stick with us through sticky times.

Furthering, the site is still alive if not regularly updated and has been quite a ride thus far -- for me and hopefully for you all as well. In these past years, I like to think we've covered a lot, lived up to the goals, and brought forth quality content for you. We'd like to continue that, so please stay tuned.

We'll also please direct you to look towards our Flickr, where updates have become easier for myself.

This is a good time to hear you. The site is ever-evolving as it's been from day one -- willing to be flexible and experimental in our content. Is there something you would like to see on The Caldor Rainbow? If so, with any other comments, please let us know.
