Some days I wish there was a way we could do more Australian news

melbourne earthquake - Google News

We get a really good run on GNews with Australian stories, but I don’t know how to monetize Australian news, well to the point where we can afford a sales team to make it worth while. The bad side is that while we get good treatment on Australian stories, GNews labels The Inquisitr as “The Inquisitr, Australia” lots of times, which might limit us a bit.

The option is that we go for VC, but well…at least one VC I’ve met wasn’t all that friendly + the real value proposition is US news, tech, odd etc. We even had a rough interested to buy offer two weeks ago. Hard for me because I’d like to do more local content, but ultimately I need to pay bills.
