This is a little shorter than I would have liked, but I'm currently under the weather. As such I've gone for more of a short and sweet approach.
It’s honestly difficult to say what all I’d like to see in the future of the Revolving Door Journal. Being a founder of the journal, naturally I’d like to see more and more success as time moves forward. Considering how the journal exists as an avenue for college students to be able to write, share, and publish their work. As the journal becomes more successful, the benefits and opportunities for individuals who submit to the journal will increase as well. It would be fantastic for our journal to be able to have that level of influence.
As far as improving the journal, I'd like to eventually be able to utilize more premium features in order to expand the number of services we can offer. I'd imagine they'd also help us to reach out to more college students and perhaps even broaden our audience. As nice as it is to branch our following between Twitter and Facebook, I'm looking forward to the day we can directly add members to the actual journal. And I'm certain we (the founders of RDJ) can all agree that once we drop the "Weebly" from our URL, a party will be in order.
My little technological fantasy aside, there is a vast amount of potential for my colleagues and I to grow as the founders of the Revolving Door Journal. As with any project, there will be numerous challenges and obstacles to overcome. Regardless of what awaits us, I am certain my colleagues and I will be more than ready to push forward. After all we are writers, and for now, this is how we are choosing to write the next chapter of our lives.
