Coming Back for More

By Margaret Lyons in News on Sep 24, 2007 7:32PM

Back in 2004, Rachelle and I hatched this beast we now know and love as Chicagoist. But its ways were too wild for me, and I fled to the safety of "traditional media." The longer I was away, though, the louder Chicagoist's song serenaded me, and today I return, emboldened and excited.

Anyway, hi. I'm Margaret. And I'm the full-time editor in chief; the beloved and lovely Rachelle will segue into the next phase of her Chicagoist career as our editor at large. What does this mean for you, dear reader? Probably not an enormous amount, but I can promise the site is going to continue to grow and improve over the coming months. You can reach me at margaret AT with your comments and suggestions. We hope you're looking forward to Chicagoist's next phase as much as we are.
