Yes, I will be crossing the Great Divide between old and new media as a member of my local newspaper’s Reader Board. The Yuma Sun e-mailed me yesterday and gave me a heads-up on this exercise, which begins July 11.
I'm very happy to report the blogger's class yesterday went just great! There is nothing more gratifying to a speaker than to see a room full of expectant faces! We actually ran out of chairs and had to get some more from another room.
These people were motivated, interested, and had plenty of very intelligent questions.
For those of you who've wondered about the site I set up for them, it's here:
This blog contains the basic outline for the class, with all the links and bloggers we talked about during the session. We held the workshop in a room without online access, and I worked from four sheets of paper. No PowerPoint. I like the way it worked out, because when you have a roomful of people all sitting in front of computers, or even with a single main screen, this tends to become distracting and the interaction between participants gets diluted.
Like so much else online, it is a work in progress, as there will be more classes of this kind to follow!

The worldest newest weblog network Weblog Empire has officially launched today, bringing together a number of previously separate blogs, and launching a new blog, into a new network that aims to make quality content easier to find. Weblog Empire, the brainchild of Western Australian blogger Duncan Riley, the editor of the leading blogging news site The Blog Herald, leverages years of experience in internet design and marketing, in an attempt to provide a superior product that meets growing consumer demand for quality content in a crowded marketplace.
“With some 60 million blogs out there, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find quality content in the blogosphere” said Mr Riley.
“Weblog Empire aims at bringing together existing sites, as well as introducing new sites that provide quality information and content for the enjoyment of the average consumer and blog reader”.
“The network will develop a number of new sites that are targeted not only to heavy computer users and bloggers, but also to the average user who may otherwise not be familiar with blogs”. Read more here>>>
