Learn To Blog, Drink Beer, Tonight!

Nov 12, 2009 by


In the days after Katrina and the levee failure local blogs were a lifeline. As the news organizations frantically ran around engaging in histrionics NOLA Bloggers gave reports from the disaster zone, analyzed media mis-representations, and shared the personal stories of our citizenry as they waded through the water.

Now you too can be a blogger, it’s not that hard. Tonight Rising Tide [Transparency: I’m on the board] is hosting our first non conference event, a crash course on the basics of blogging.

Add your voice to the equation! The media has left us for “sexier” stories and it is up to us to speak up for our city. Here are the details, head on down to the Bridge Lounge this evening, hoist a beer, and become part of the digital revolution! Details below.
