Sierra Madre News Net started in 1998 as SidebySlide.com. I started taking pictures at Sierra Madre events in the hopes that people who wanted to see their pictures online (the world was a different place, back then, the internet was fairly new), would come to see them and while there, discover my company, which at the time was focused on PowerPoint presentations for weddings, anniversaries, and special occasions.
In 2000, I decided to concentrate on making the site a “news and information” source. We started slowly, but grew to the point where we were averaging in excess of 55,000 visitor sessions per month. Over the years, we’ve had periods where we have been more active than others, as the News Net is just one of several things I’m involved in. But I try to keep things up to date as best I can, and now have nearly 4,000 pages on the site, with thousands of pictures and, more recently, lots of video as well. Please drop by the site any time, and tell your friends about the News Net. And remember, the Net may not catch everything, but the fishing’s half the fun, right?
