VT Blogs: What's up with Voices for the Lake?

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2005 at 9:16 AM

It started with some fanfare, but the ECHO center's blog is now languishing. "Your voice counts!" it promises on its home page. "Use this online journal to share your concerns, opinions and ideas about improving the health of Lake Champlain, and to discover what others are thinking and feeling about the health of the lake."

Alas, its third and final post is dated July 5. I tried contacting the blog administrator a while back, but I never received a reply.

I guess they discovered that they couldn't just build it and expect people to come. Blogs are like that. You really have to have a tight focus, a strong voice, and you have to promote it vigorously. I don't even think anyone else has noticed that this site is still out there. It kinda looks bad for ECHO, which is otherwise a topnotch institution.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
