I’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.
Here’s my promo screencast/video from when I last did the course in 2011:
KYMN’s Tim Freeland is covering the story of this overturned car at the front door of Hogan Brothers this morning. You’d better check to see if yours is missing.
I guess the
police were right about full moons, especially the blue types.
Our radio show/podcast guest yesterday: KYMN Radio’s operations and sales guy, Tim Freeland, talking with us about how Northfield area retailers can make use of social media for marketing.

We installed a
KYMN 1080 Radio live audio stream widget on our upper left sidebar yesterday, similar to what Northfield.org has had on their right sidebar for quite a while. 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
I got treated last week to a surprise birthday party, orchestrated by my sweetie. She called on these people to help:
L to R: Jeff Johnson, KYMN, emceed the roast; Tim Freeland, KYMN, took the video; Doug Bratland took 24 photos at the start of the party and blogged them within an hour on Northfield.org; and Bridgette Hallcock, DJJD photographer who took over 300 photos throughout the evening (including the above ones of Jeff, Tim and Doug). I’ve put up a party photo album of 100 of Bridgett’s photos here.
Bridgett’s the best special event photographer around, IMHO. Her card says: "Bridgette Hallcock Photography, Castle Rock, Specializing in outdoor photography of seniors, families, and special events. 507-271-3262."
Update 10/3: Robbie was horrified when she saw this blog post because I didn’t include two people who worked behind the scenes with her prior to the event:
Jessica Paxton and Tracy Davis. Thanks, ladies!
Tim Freeland has a
post on the KYMN blog, asking listeners to take a 30-second survey:
For the love of radio…we need your help. Please take a 30 second listener survey. It will help us maintain great local programming for another 40 years…at least.
I completely dropped the ball last week on taking photos during Crazy Daze.
But fortunately, KYMN’s Tim Freeland picked it up and went all the way for the score.

The old Tires Plus site got some spiffing up (sweeping, lawn mowing) by City of Northfield workers last week (photo courtesy of Tim Freeland). I don’t understand why this was done relatively quickly while the weeds and construction debris at The Crossing have been a problem for years. And who’s paying for it?
As I drove by KYMN’s studios on Division St. this morning, I noticed that they have a new neon sign in the window. Station manager Jeff Johnson says some people still think their studios are out with their tower in Waterford Township so the sign is to help remedy that. Tim Freeland has a blog post on it.
