Blogging the blogosphere

downtownvigor.jpgHere’s my blog post of NDDC blogger Ross Currier’s photo which was posted on Josh Hinnenkamp’s Union of Youth blog, a photo of Northfield News non-blogging photographer Dan Iverson taking a photo of NDDC board members giving a check to Union of Youth youth board members Marie Fischer and Max Jennings which means that Ross will soon blog about this on his NDDC blog and then maybe Josh will blog about how the photo got blogged by Locally Grown and NDDC and then someone will start commenting on one of the blogs with links to the blog posts and then the pingbacks and trackbacks will kick in and and then the MSM will call me and wonder what this civic blogosphere stuff is all about and then I’ll have a good current example except that Josh and Ross don’t yet know shit from shinola about pingbacks and trackbacks so I’ll have to teach a class about it and then we’ll all blog about the class on blogging and then…

Oh yeah, follow the money.

Dan Bergeson joins the blogosphere


danblogsshot.gifDan Bergeson, NDDC board member and Director of Auxiliary Services and Special Projects at Carleton College, now has a blog called How come? If you don’t ask, you may never find out (AKA I’m Just Curious.)

(That’s Dan on the right during Taste of Northfield, making a pass at a woman who apparently was having her head examined.)

Northfield, Minnesota has no shortage of folks with opinions. I’m one of them and am pleased to share some of my ruminations with the world. Subjects will vary, but there will be a preponderence of postings on the physical nature of my community and region looking for answers to the question, “How did it come to be this way?” I invite any readers to share their thoughts and responses with me.

We’ve added Dan’s RSS feed to our right sidebar aggregator since it’s primarily a civic-issues blog.

Penny Hillemann joins the blogosphere

hillemann.jpgpenny.gifPenny Hillemann, communications counselor at Neuger Communications Group, has launched her own blog called Penelopedia: This & That in Northfield, MN.

Occasional observations on trying to live a bit greener and closer to nature, as I tend my small garden, eat more locally, cook from scratch more often, walk more, drive less, and pay attention to wildlife and the rhythms of season and climate. And stuff like that.
