Get started with a local blog

This week, we just welcomed a new local blog on politics -- "Politics Are Personal" -- to the Community Media Lab at The Morning Journal, and we're looking to help even more people get started blogging.

Blogs are easy to set up and we'll help you get started. All you need to bring along is your imagination, talent and a willingness to write frequent short blog posts on your topic of choice.

What are blogs about? Most anything. But most importantly, they should focus on the local scene. 

That means writing about doings in your city or village council, or your township. It also could mean writing about what's happening in your school or school district. And, blogs can be about what's going on in your neighborhood, your church, social organization or club. Blogs can even be about topics such as hobbies and share information with like-minded local hobbyists.

If you want to try blogging, we'll give you the help you need for a quick start, plus ongoing advice or help anytime you need it.

To get started, just email me -- Tom Skoch -- at
