On Assignment

After talking with Ed last night I thought it might be a good idea to put our various g-town contributors "on assignment". Each of us have our own interests and talents which tend to come out in our posts. The idea here is that we leverage those interests to foster bigger and better posts, focused on a particular topic. For example, Ed could choose to do a bi-weekly post summarizing all of the books he's read. The Brit generally fills us in on English soccer, but why not expand this to do a World Cup '06 preview column that examines contenders from the various regions.

Brad & Witt could provide a good summary of weekly trends and developments in the financial world. Traci could give us news & insight from the teaching world. I'm sure we could get a conglomerate of people to do a weekly summary of strange links from around the web... Nowa & Jim come to mind. Joe's done a good job working the Ohio sport beat in the past.

Like I said, I'm just interested in seeing bigger and better posts from everyone. Take some time and put together a draft of your post, include a bunch of links, throw in a couple of pictures. When it's ready, post it and share the knowledge. If you've got a passion for something, let us know.


  1. Lobakes, you ought to put this link on the blogg.


    It is a good way to waste a few minutes and some of them are really funny.

  2. Anyone else have a favorite political cartoon place? The Onion is my main supplier of political satire. This guy also keeps a blog, and he seems to update it regularly. It's interesting to see his perspective as a cartoonist, he makes points in drawings rather than articles. I'll add this shortly.
