Stamford Bloggers in the Stamford Times

There is an article in the Stamford Times about the bloggers who write about Stamford. The reporter, A.J. O'Connell, featured me, Blog Stamford, Mr. Stamford, and Joey K's Place. It's kinda cool that I'm the only girl; I attribute that to my computer-oriented husband, who first encouraged me to blog 3.5 years ago after we bought my first laptop.

Also, I'm just too chatty and opinionated to keep my thoughts to myself.

You should go to Joey K's blog to read about how his bosses called him in after the Times article was published. I think they had the impression that blogs were only supposed to be about personal things rather than current city issues, which can often be controversial. In Joe's post today, he clarifies what he will and won't write about. I like that he told his bosses that he certainly will keep blogging about Long Island Sound, ticks, mosquitoes, and other issues of interest the general public. Joey K's blog is cool because he puts that info in more user-friendly terms.

The Stamford Times comes free every week to all local households, so make sure you casually bring up the article in conversations with all your neighbors.

When I went to the Stamford Advocate to see more info on the car getting hit by a train that happened a few hundred feet from my office (which is freaky), I saw the bloggers story was #3 most viewed at that point...way to go! People DO care about Stamford bloggers...
