From this week’s New Irmo News (and “Doing the First” blog):
September 11, 2008
“This newspaper is planning to bring back an old feature: community columnists – the locals who contribute a few paragraphs each week or so about goings-on in your neighborhoods or social circles.
We’re currently looking for the folks to fill those slots, and you might be one of them. If you’re interested in a new hobby – writing your own short column about the people you know – shoot me an email and I’ll pass it on. My personal email is RodShealy@aol.com.”
While you’re at it (with permission from the New Irmo News, of course) I’ll probably be able to add those columns to this blog site. Maybe sort of a “Guest Blogger” type post. To go along with the “Meet Your Neighbor” posts I’ve had here, here, here, here, here, here, and here over the past few months.
I join the local paper in asking you to give it a shot. Columns from locals make for much better reading. I hope you’ll consider it and I look forward to reading the columns soon!
