Tenth to the Fraser is written by Briana Tomkinson, her husband Will, her friend & business partner Jen Arbo and over 80 contributing writers from the community. If you’d like to write a guest post on a New Westminster issue, business, place or event, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This website is funded and managed by the Tomkinsons, with volunteer contributions from many individuals in the community. Although we have run ads in the past to partially cover the costs of running the site, we do not currently receive funding for the blog from sponsors, grants or other sources. We are currently exploring a sponsorship model in order to increase the resources available to write and maintain the site.
Full disclosure: Jen and Briana work as consultants in New Westminster via their marketing company, Hyack Interactive, which has provided strategic planning, marketing and social media management services to a variety of organizations in the city, including local government, nonprofits and businesses. While we have never been paid to post information about a particular organization on the blog, we are embedded in the city community as professionals and volunteers. Our point of view on the city is naturally coloured by our personal experience of life here. In our writing, we always try to be fair-minded, but we have no pretence of being impartial! We love living, working and socializing in New West, and this comes through in what and how we write.
