NOTE: This is a community based site and our aspiration is to keep the site independent and non-commercial. We are not affiliated with any commercial sites.
Currently we are trying to fund this site by donations from site visitors. Any shortfall is funded with advertising.
We only carry local advertising (Index, the Valley and what we consider good for all even if not directly local). That way we have no dealing with advertisers like Google, Amazon and the likes. This means we are totally free of any advertiser pressure and able to maintain total independence.
Welcome to the small town, big site!
The Town of Index website is the brainchild of Ed B. Mulling it over on a summer’s day in August of ’07 and wondering what would happen if a site was built for the Town of Index pointing it toward the people of the town and visitors looking for an out of the way place that they can come to for a get-away. It was decided that the site should be a small portal into the life of the town. My neighbor came up with the name of the site, and Ed B. hit on the small town – big site humor. A few ideas later, the site was up and running.
That’s it. The idea was, we’ll keep it simple and if we are lucky we will get 5,000 hits a month and it shouldn’t be too much work. We now get about 320,000 hits in any given month and boy, we are surprised. And yes, it has become sort of a job if you will, but it is a lot of fun and we have met a lot of nice people along the way.
Our hope is that this small portal will give you the information you are looking for. If not, use the CONTACT US section and we will try to help. Oh, while you are here, why don’t you join our forums. It’s something new as of August of 2010 and you just may be able to look into the life of a small town!! The address is www.indexwa.org/forum.
