Registrations now open for both WordPress for Noobs courses: 1) Online only or 2) Face-to-Face in Northfield

Tim FreelandI’m teaming up with fellow Northfielder Tim Freeland of Freeland Web Design to teach the WordPress for Noobs course. Tim’s been working with many area organizations on their WordPress-based websites. I’ve gotten to know him from his many years of community engagement, some of which he chronicles on his personal blog.

We’re now open for registrations.

The content for both courses is the same. Participants in the face-to-face course will have access to the online screencasts, webinars, and web forum.

Got questions? Contact me.

Here’s my promo screencast/video from when I last did the course in 2011:

Light Up Northfield! KYMN’s Christmas lights contest is back

After years on hiatus, we are re-launching “Light up Northfield,” a residential, exterior Christmas light contest.

We will be judging Christmas-light & decorations within the Northfield city limits or a maximum of  5 miles from the city borders.  We will be announcing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners on December 17th, 2010. Winners will receive a prize package full of great tickets and passes to regional events. Winning names will be announced and photos of their homes will be displayed on KYMN’s website.

Entrants are encouraged to upgrade their lighting displays with eco-friendly and cost saving LED lights, but is not required.  Winners will be judged on overall creativity and showmanship.

Enter your exterior residential Christmas light display and win.  See all the details at KYMN!

Listen to your Twins baseball locally all summer, by Tim Freeland

[show_avatar email=tim@kymnradio.net]Just a reminder that without a clear channel like WCCO carrying the Minnesota Twins, you’ll need your local syndicate to get the best quality sound when you’re out and about listening to your soon-to-be-World-Champion-Minnesota-Twins!  With permission of MLB, we broadcast all games in real time, cutting in local ID drops, commercials, and liners.

So, when you go from TV, to the yard, to the car, keep it tuned to 1080AM KYMN for your Twins action!

When you click the “listen live” image/button, a streaming bar appears on the bottom of your web browser window that looks like this. Continue reading Listen live to KYMN while mousing around LoGroNo
