New Column: The Weekly Post

Posted By on Wed, Oct 12, 2005 at 10:19 AM

As promised, there's a new column in this week's Seven Days. The Weekly Post, which appears on page 62A, inside the last page of the first section, spotlights a post from one of the Vermont blogs on my blogroll. The first post o' the week is from New York Ex. The post was actually from last Thursday — because of print deadlines, I'm going to have to pick something from the previous week.

If you're wondering, "how do I get my blog into this column," consider this: I'm looking for writing that's fairly brief (about 200 words or so, less if there's an image). It should be creative, maybe about Vermont, able to stand alone in a newspaper and be interesting to the casual reader, and it should make people want to read blogs. I will contact the blog author to check in about using the post — I'm not sure if I'm legally bound to do that, but that's going to be my policy. I will also protect anonymity in the paper — if you're an anonymous blogger, I'm happy to keep it that way. Alas, there's no payment. And we're not archiving these on the website. It's basically a free ad for your blog, and free content for us.

If you want to suggest a post for consideration (feel free, but only if you're on my blogroll), send ideas to me at Please don't send more than one per week. I think I'm picking them on Monday, so send 'em before then. And send any suggestions you have about how we can do blogging better. I don't know of any other columns like this in print papers, though probably someone somewhere else is doing it. If you know of any examples, list them in the comments thread below. Also, please note that the picture of me in the header was not my idea.

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

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
