Calling all bloggers; our push for literacy

I edit a newspaper and website for a living, so it goes without saying that reading is pretty important to me.

I think it's an important issue for Delaware County as well.

That's one of the reasons we've teamed with the grassroots organization Brothers of Concern to promote a special reading program in Chester. They call it 'Real Men Really Read.' Maybe you've seen the billboards promoting the program on I-95.

Another key group involved in pushing the value of reading is the Delaware County Literacy Council.

We've worked closely with them in the past and now we're ready to take the next step. We're hoping to hook up the Literacy Council with our Community Media Lab and our group of local bloggers to both promote literacy and team up on efforts here in the county.

That's why we've invited a member of Delaware County Literacy Council to join us Thursday night at the our monthly bloggers meeting. We'll talk about ways we can use our blogs to promote literacy and any events we might be able to team up to promote.

I'm also hoping to have representatives from Brothers of Concern on hand to explain 'Real Men Really Read' and how the bloggers can get involved in that program as well.

Now I'm asking you, have you ever thought about joining our blog team? Now's your chance.

If you've always had a hankering to write - about sports, things in your town or school, or your hobbby, now is the time to step up to the plate

We want you to be part of our blogging team. And Thursday night is your chance to learn how it works.

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to sit on this side of the keyboard and bang out all this glorious prose, we just might give you that opportunity.

We continue to seek bloggers to write for DelcoTimes.com.

Currently we feature a small army of folks who write about everything from their local communities, to their favorite hobbies, to astrology.

If you’d like to give it a shot, join us for our monthly meeting of our community media lab and blog team.

We will gather here in our Primos office, 500 Mildred Ave., just off Providence Road, at 6 p.m. Thursday.

You’ll never know if you have what it takes until you give it a shot.

Hope to see Thursday night.
