OK I got another idea

It's easy to set up a Blogger account, so my idea is to expand the bloggosphere in the neighborhoods. Consider it, especially if all you must do is talk about your life in the neighborhood or even at school. It might be great if you had a neighborhood organization or a block club just to let the rest of the world know what's going on in meetings or at least in your neighborhood.

If nothing else I can see this as a means to connect with other neighborhood activists out there in the city. Especially if your concerns aren't much different that those around Chicago. Still there's no reason Roger's Park should have all the fun.

By all means if you ever get your blog off the ground let me know, I will link you. And I hope you keep up consistent updates. It doesn't matter if it's once a week or once everyday. The pace is up to you. And it's OK to come up with an assumed name, you don't have to use your real name!

And I will also note that Blogger isn't the only software you can use. There's Yahoo!360, Wordpress (you can use one of two programs one to download onto dedicated webspace or there's where you can sign up and you're ready to blog). There's also LiveJournal for your blogging needs of course that can be used for more personal purposes. I just want to hand you some ideas!
