Blog Round Up Part One
This fall, as we were planning the launch of Onward State, we did a thorough investigation of the other blogs in, well, the Penn State blogosphere. We thought that you might like to see what else is out there. We’re going to do half of the blogs today, and the other half hopefully tomorrow.
Penn State Live is the University’s Official News Source. Most of the articles on the site are press releaases, but they do some cool multimedia things like this video about Paternoville. It also uses Twitter!
There are three more blogs after the jump.
Next we have Dean Christian Brady’s Schreyer Honor College blog. Out of all the people we’ve met on the academic side of the university (discounting ITS!), he is the most knowledgeable about blogs, the internet, and especially Apple computers. In short, he’s our kind of guy. He updates fairly regularly. You can also follow him on Twitter as SHCDean.
Left of Centre is a blog run by an anonymous someone who is very familiar with the Penn State/State College area. His views are quite extreme, though he does often have good points. We hope to network with him in the coming weeks, so that all of our readers can get a sense of what the author stands for.
One of our peer media outlets, The LION 90.7fm, runs a blog through the Centre Daily Times. Though the CDT blog isn’t updated very often, you can always get more information about The LION 90.7fm either on their website or by listening to their radio station. (How about that nifty widget we have to the right of the page? Do you all like it or not?)
We hope this list gave you a good preview of what is available to Penn Staters on the web. We’ll report back soon, hopefully tomorrow, with a preview of The Daily Collegian’s blogs and Graham Spanier’s blog.
