A blog.

I'm serious. I was browsing through some Pittsburgh type blogs today (Overheard in Pittsburgh, iheartpgh, etc) and I thought we could do that.

The regulars on the board could all contribute....it would be awesome.


Thoughts?

I certainly think there are more than enough opinions from all regions of the country (and world for that matter) on this board. I'd love to see it.

Yes, but you don't really know who they come from. If, for instance, No. 9 had a blog it would be much more interesting to me rather than Joe from Reno.

Sure......but most of them are just one guy. I'm talking about the half dozen or so of us who are regulars.

We might not always agree.....but it would make for some good reading.

No argument from me. I wouldnt come here in the first place if the idea of a variety of views wasnt an appealing one.

I'd be willing to do the legwork to set it up if a couple of people are interested in joining me.


PM me if you're interested.

If you are going to do something blog related with association to the board or apart of the board, I think the first thing before any leg work is put together is to talk to bucco boy 1st...

I was thinking of something separate from the board, but I'll shot him a PM just so he's in the loop.

Thanks IA!
I actually do have a blog but it is more devoted to what is going on in my family and various random thoughts about the world today. My brother got me going on it . . . I don't think that anyone but family members read it . . . and I'm not sure how much I would want the world checking in on me either.
