A feature article about Saskatchewan bloggers gave a peek at some of the province's blogs Monday morning.
Being one of the only Regina bloggers interviewed, I was fodder for a photo and a couple of quotes. That's me poking up at the top of the front page of the Regina Leader-Post. I was going for the serious, professional look, but photographer Don Healy wanted the grinning enthusiast look, so I obliged.
I commented about the interactivity of blogs, and that editorial rules for bloggers vary much more than they do for journalists.
A companion article focused on political blogs and how the parties approach social media.
For a look at most of the active blogs in the province, visit the Saskatchewan Blogs Aggregator.
Did I get a spike in traffic from the Leader-Post story? A bit, but not as much as from a link this week on Laura's Playground Transgender and Transsexual News site. Goes to show that a mention in electronic format that has a link built in leads to more visits than a mention in a print publication that doesn't include a URL.
And congrats to Saskboy for his Off the Grid being voted best science/tech blogger from the Canadian Blog Awards. He also came third in the best progressive blog category. Kate McMillan's Small Dead Animals and Schmutzie's Milkmoney or Not Here I Come were in the top three for best conservative blog and best Canadian blog, respectively.
