We *May* Be On KUOW’s “Weekday” Around 9:30am
If you’re near one of those old-fangled airwave-transmitter receiving “radio” thingys this morning, be sure to tune in to KUOW 94.9 FM at 9am (or you can listen online like the rest of us here) as Steve Sher’s “Weekday” will be discussing “Placeblogging“:
Neighborhood blogs: A townhouse is going up next door, someone got mugged around the corner, and a new coffee shop opened down the street.
That’s the kind of thing you want to know when it happens near you.
But it’s probably not going to make it into the city newspaper.
Hyper local bloggers have sprung up to fill you in on your neighborhood news. Some bloggers are reporters. Some are software developers. Some are just curious citizens. One only writes haikus.
Are local blogs how all of us will get more information in the future?
Is it a sustainable business?
Do you read a local blog?
Email [email protected].
We’ve been asked to call in around 9:30am (what…studio’s not big enough?), so we’ll see if they take our call and let us blabber incoherently about “faceflogging,” whatever that is…
Of course, we always encourage our readers to participate, so if you’d like to interact (or support us), either email [email protected] or call them a bit before 9am at (206) 543-KUOW or 1-800-289-KUOW.
