Blog it, Toledo: Blogs and TwittersWritten by Lisa Renee Ward | | firstname.lastname@example.org
As I sat down to write this week, I knew a few blogs I was definitely going to cover, then when I was searching to see if I had missed any additional new blogs, I came across a few twitters that just might be of interest to you as well.
I teased in the shortened print edition of this column that there is a police department that is using Twitter as a way to update citizens to important information. Unfortunately I can’t tell you that it’s here in Toledo, but is in Ohio. The Bath Police Department which is in Akron, Ohio is twittering. With the way so many people are accessing Twitter on the go, the information related to accidents, suspects, etc., is pretty neat.
The blog, The Certain Sound is more than what the description states, “Reflections on the issues facing a contemporary ministry in an urban small-membership church that is socially conscious as well as salvation conscious.” It’s a look into a very thought provoking point of view on a variety of topics by “Revvy Rev” and at times it’s also a musical memory adventure. This is one of my favorite new blogs for many reasons.
Are you a serious political junkie? Then don’t wait for the media to report to you what Congress is doing, turn to Twitter. Both the House and the Senate provide updates on Twitter. Even the Department of Homeland Security has gotten into the Twitter act.
Looking for something a bit more amusing than Congress, though at times they are hard to take serious…I recommend True Stories where of course it has to be true because the Blog Title wouldn’t lie. Though I have to admit I wonder, a recent story about dinosaurs could be just a little bit stretched, or bongs were created much earlier than I remember.
Back in the land of politics with a focus on Ohio politics is Blue Ohio Blog where Nick is sharing the news and his view on what’s happening in the world of politics. You can guess what the color blue means.
Whether you are into blogs or you prefer the short and sweetness of Twitter, more are appearing daily, especially when it comes to Twitter, will our area catch up to the twitterness as far as any of our local government or agencies? Stay tuned…
