Oregon Media Central: Give us your blogs, your bloggers, your reporters yearning to blog free

Well, this week, OMC announced something that may just make me stop wearing black over OMI’s demise. You see, Oregon Media Central is going to start covering the blogging scene, too.

[HTML2]Not so long ago, I was in a bit of a funk about the demise of Oregon Media Insiders, which had been the go-to blog for all things media-related around these parts. It was a shame to see it go.

But, while I’m still sad that OMI is no more, I have to say that Oregon Media Central has done a fine job of stepping in to fill those very big shoes. And now, there’s something that makes me like Oregon Media Central event more.

And that is? Well, this week, OMC announced something that may just make me stop wearing black over OMI’s demise. You see, Oregon Media Central is going to start covering the blogging scene, too.

We want our list to be inclusive and expansive. If you have a blog or know of a blog in Oregon or Southwest Washington, notable or not, please make a note of it anyway by posting a comment to this post or by sending us a link. Don’t assume we already know about it, though we will be scouring several blog aggregators for leads.

Turns out Daniel Bachhuber—one of the leading proponents for the transformation of traditional media around here—will be lending a hand to help OMC start up this new vein of coverage.

We’re aiming to cover innovations and other happenings in the local blogging and online community, and we’ll use reporters’ blogs to bring you more information on what’s happening in traditional media, as well. I’m excited to make this expansion.

And none too soon. If Portland isn’t one of the bloggiest cities in the US, I’ll be a monkeys uncle. And someone needs to cover what’s happening on all the great blogs around here. And it’s not just Portland. Remember, it’s Oregon Media Central. Well and southwest Washington, too.

Even more important? Kudos to Oregon Media Central for recognizing blogs as a valuable component of the media in Oregon.

Is your blog on the list? You’ll never know unless you check the comments on the blogs that should be added.

  1. Perhaps not exactly what you’re looking for, but I am an Airedale Terrier in Portland and rather opinionated. I give the dogs-eye view of Portland.
