Dennis Fisher was our news director at the time. he solicited ideas for getting new and original content on to WNEP.com. I saw anchor and reporter authored columns on other TV station web sites, and I made the suggestion. Dennis asked for some samples.
Before I could provide them, the blog thing started to take off, and then-webmaster Mark Sowers cornered me one morning to ask if I would be interested. I started blogging that afternoon.
I don't have an accurate number of posts and photos because our platform has changed a few times over the years. I suspect it's more than 2,000. That's a lot of banality!
We had a few other blogs over the years, but the authors thought FaceBook would be a better fit. I'm not a FaceBook guy, but I can't argue with their reasoning.
I did register a Google+ account, just to keep someone from snatching my name. I've yet to do anything with it. I also had to re-activate my LinkedIn account to retrieve some e-mail addresses that were lost in a server crash. I still Tweet on occasion.
Thanks for being here for the ride.
