Huffington Post, Here We Come

On their website/newspaper/blog, the Huffington Post recently launched a "College" section, where they publish the work of selected college media outlets. Why am I telling you this? Because they selected Onward State as a partner!


Our "THON in Review" article appeared on the Huffington Post yesterday, much to everyone's delight. To get hyped for this new affiliation, we've added a HuffPo widget on the right side of our page.


This new phase of our bloghood is big news for us here at Onward State. @Writers, we'll have to step up our game. Davis' so-called "duopoly" has erupted into a monopolistic competition, so we'll have to differentiate our product in order to succeed. @Readers, post exemplary comments; the whole world may see them!


In case any of you fine folks really dig the Huffington Post, answer their call for citizen journalists. They'll be recruiting "about 30 students, both photojournalists and videographers, to cover college issues.... There will be weekly assignments, training events, crowdsourcing projects, and most importantly, daily access to HuffPost editors." If interested, click here to apply.

THON's Total Revealed

THON 2010…Coverage Onward State Style

This weekend, I spent many hours experiencing something amazing. I covered what I believe is one of the greatest collegiate endeavors ever attempted. THON 2010.


During my coverage time with Onward State, I worked with great people and got to see what goes on behind the scenes and up close what THON accomplishes.


THON doesn't just start on Friday and end on Sunday, THON starts almost a year in advance, and so did Onward State's coverage. We started covering many stories related to THON and how THON operates, we contacted THON PR and talked with many THON representatives to makes sure you would receive the best THON coverage we could offer.


For more info on how we were able to cover the behemoth that is THON (and for 116 pictures!), read the full story.
