Amazing, yet true. classes cancelled through Friday due to Hurricane Ivan.
So, you will – of course – spend all five days doing your practice graphics lessons from the book, and editing and blogging, right … oh, sure – you’ll say, “Robert, the power went out.” … uh, sure.
Do your homework, read the book and blog by candlelight 😉
Anyway, all I ask is that you be very careful and safe during this storm. OK!
Now, after making that statement, I’m still going to ask you to do work. 🙂
Here’s a challenge … find a good example of blogs and the weather which promote a product/service and talk about the effectiveness of it’s use. Look in my previous posts and you’ll find one effort by Ryan Towell of the online weather service ‘WeatherBug‘ and their “Storm Chase Team”.
I think Ryan has developed quite a following. The content is so intriguing. You can live vicariously through the posts as he, and this time ‘Fran’, risk their lives chasing storms. I’m betting that their efforts [a] help to hold their existing audience (stickiness) to the site and [b] draw in new audience – all this while doing a good job of reporting some aspects we rarely see of a storm.
