Kari of Chalice Spark and I are cooking up a workshop for our District's Annual General Meeting in February. We met today at the Ram in Northgate for lunch and talked about how we could introduce folks to the blogosphere, showing them how blogs can work as congregational tools, as personal journals, as political discussion forums, etc. We're kind of thinking that if we can get a room that has wireless access we will create a blog on the spot, signing up attendees as contributors, and showing them how to use UUpdates, DiscoverUU, and other existing blogs and blog-tools to find material to write about. We'll upload pictures of them onto the blog, with their own writings featured.
Doesn't that sound like fun? We think there are only a bare handful of bloggers in our district. I hope there will be lots more after February!
