DCWKLY.com is a guide to restaurants, nightlife, local news, dating, fashion, music, and events. Our site helps you decide where to party and where to eat, and gives you information on what’s going on in DC daily. Introduced on March 15th 2015, we’ve gained a good following with over 200,000 page views and 60,000 visitors. These numbers have proven to our team that people interested and engaged with the content we have to offer.
We recognized the huge potential for DCWKLY.com and this is why we decided to launch a kickstarter campaign. We’ve done the research, and this campaign will be a huge step in continuing to build a sustainable, long-term business model for years to come.
All of our writers are volunteers who believe in DCWKLY so much they offer their talent to us week after week with no charge. This kickstarter campaign will propel DCWKLY to another level which will enable us to pay writers in the future. We are a team with one goal.
Our mission is to be the go to media source for the 18 to 40 multicultural demographic in the Washington Metro area. Whether written, video, audio and mobile phone apps we will create unique original content for our niche demographic.
