Ironbound Newark’s Blog A Powerful Example of Community Blogging

Ironbound Newark has a blog. It is a powerful example of what a community can do to stay in touch, inform and empower. Kudos to them. Thier mission statement below says it all:

Our mission is provide accurate data to Newark residents and the world about our little neighborhood. We are constantly making this website better. We do apologize for the lack of posts in the last several years. We are now more committed than ever before to providing you with Ironbound news, reviews, views, and event coverage.

An example of excellent posts that make a difference can be seen in the coverage related to the unfair closing of a local hospital.

In my opinion this is one of the powerful uses of blogging! Keep up the great work. It is one of my personal goals to help other communities and organizations blog powerful messages. I encourage all baby boomers who blog to get involved and help our communities find a voice to shout their messages.

    Rosie, another site that has taken up the challenge of community blogging is one I contribute to, glocallynewark.com. There’s about 10 contributors writing about all sorts of events in the Ironbound and Downtown Newark areas of the city. It’s fledgling, but it seems like the message is starting to get out there.

    Here’s my latest for their site, about a roller derby bout I attended:

    Enjoy!
