On September 4, 2009, Mike and I launched The Western Online. The site has grown tremendously beyond what I first envisioned and I hope its around for a very long time. The site would not be what it is today without the hard work and dedication of our Associate Editor Michael T. Pizzolato. In addition to providing the graphic designer for The Western Online, Mike has contributed an amazing amount of artwork to the site, helps read story submissions, and even contributes articles for our editorial section, The Roundup. Without his encouragement and support, I probably wouldn't have launched the site at all.
A special thanks to all of those who have contributed their fine works to The Western Online. Without our writers, we wouldn't exist at all.
