I'm back (and pooped)

Sorry for the almost month long absence. As I'm sure regular readers have noticed over the last 6 months or so the frequency and consistency with which I post has been all over the map. You can blame the new job for that. As much as I really enjoy the new gig it has become something of a time sink as of late. Add to that two toddlers, house renovations and the other stuff life throws at you it can be difficult to carve out enough time every day to update the blog.

Unfortunately, I don't see this pattern changing anytime in the near future. I'll try my best to keep to a somewhat regular posting schedule, but I can't make any promises. Thanks for sticking around during this somewhat chaotic time.

Hi, Nathan

Apologies for this off-topic comment, but we've been trying unsuccessfully to reach you by e-mail.

J-Lab, The Institute for Interactive Journalism, is compiling a new online citizen journalism directory – part of the new citizen journalism resource site. We wanted to try once more to gather information on the DC Education Blog for this directory.

Please take five minutes to fill out a brief online survey so we can include your site (for free).

Here is our survey

DEADLINE: We need your response by Monday, Feb. 26. This is your final opportunity to be included in the debut version of this directory.

Due to respondents’ suggestions, we have restructured this survey so that all questions now appear on one web page. We also have reduced the number of required fields. So if you hesitated to respond before, please check out the revised survey.

Our survey requests descriptive information that will allow us to categorize your site, location information to place it on our Google Map navigation interface, and contact information for our internal use only (to keep the directory updated).

This online citizen journalism directory is sponsored by J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism at the University of Maryland, as part of a forthcoming Knight Citizen News Network initiative, and by the Center for Citizen Media, jointly affiliated with the University of California, Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University Law School.

Please help us track the rise of citizen journalism.

Questions: e-mail me at

NOTE: If you’re responding after Feb. 26, the above survey link may not work. Please e-mail for an updated survey link.

Thank you,

Amy Gahran of I, Reporter, on behalf of J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism
