Eastern Shore Blogging: On Coastal Connection, 88.3 FM, Friday (via Ocean City Blog)

Here at Dispatches from Consternation, I write about issues that have no geographical boundary: political and economic change, life after 60, and simple living.

But many blogs have a distinctly local or community focus, reporting on news or life in general in a specific hometown, sometimes even a neighborhood.

I also write one of those community-focused blogs, which I started in 2007 as Maryland On My Mind, and now call simply, Ocean City Blog. I’ll be talking on Friday, April 15, with a couple of other regional bloggers about blogging on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The interview on the local PBS show, Coastal Connection, hosted by Brian Russo, will air at noon and 8 p.m. Friday.

The discussion runs about 20 minutes, and provides a quick general introduction to the subject of community blogging. Details, including a link for Web listening, are in the post below. I hope you can listen in, and perhaps add your own comments below.

    • Hey Tom, thanks for listening! Do you think people in the buildings where you work are taking the threat of govt. shutdown seriously?

        Yes they are. The recently averted shutdown threat caused one of the projects I’m working on to be put on hold until the shutdown was called off. I’ve also heard a few comments from disappointed govt workers who were looking forward to a few(?) days off.
