Sunny Sunday open thread and updates
It’s yet another beautiful day here in NC, time to go sit on the deck with the dogs and blog, eh? I will in a bit, but wanted to pass on an update on the Blend.
1. I snared www.pamshouseblend.com, so if you want to bookmark something more easy on the brain than my highly unmemorable www.pamspaulding.com/weblog, you can do so. The domain is a forward, so it will still take you to the current URL, but it still makes it easier to remember.
2. I’m slated to be interviewed by my local paper tomorrow, the Durham Herald-Sun. The reporter, Cynthia Greenlee-Donnell, wants to talk about Triangle-area bloggers for a feature story. Apparently I’m one of the few black/female/lesbian bloggrrrls (the demographic triple threat, lol) around Durham. Don’t know whether that is a good or bad thing, considering we need all the local blogosphere power we can get on this amendment fight. That leads to…
3. The Triangle Bloggers Conference 2005 is taking place next week, Saturday, February 12, from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Topics include blogger credibility, experiments in citizen journalism, local blogrolls and other related doodads. I’m planning to go; I don’t know a lot of the other Triangle bloggers, but it will be nice to see what those folks are doing, and comparing notes. Orange County (home of Chapel Hill and Carrboro) has a powerhouse group blog, OrangePolitics.org, but outside of that, I’m not aware of other high-visibility projects.
