Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Attention all Northeast Ohio bloggers. Cleveland.com, the online version of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, is starting a blogger directory, and they've asked me to spread the word. Which I think I just did. If you're interested, register here . I know I'm going to.

I just hope the folks at the PD don't find out that I once delivered the Cleveland Press.

Any Greater Clevelander over 40 should get that joke.

  1. 5:30 am every morning to stuff papers, then deliver them in time for a cup of hot chocolate before school. do expatriated Clevelanders count?

  2. What happens to non-northeast Ohio bloggers?

    Can we join in, too?

  3. I'm with Elisabeth! The blogosphere is universal. Would the good Ohioans want to know about some of the rest of us? ;~}

  4. If the Plain Dealer has something like this, I'm sure the local paper in your town does, too. My advice is to go to the web site of your local paper and register or sign up or whatever it's called in order to leave comments at the end of online articles and columns. Usually there's a line where you can punch in a blog or web site address. I'm guessing that's how the PD discovered me. I believe they sent me a form email asking me if I'd be interested, probably one they sent to hundreds of other people. I could be wrong. Maybe it was a personal email. If they read this and get pissed at me for implying their email is form, well, then, I guess I'll know it's personal.

    By the way, when I said the PD asked me to spread the word, I didn't mean I'm friends with the publisher or editor--on the sign in form it reads "spread the word on your blog or Twitter". Well, I spread it on my blog. I have no plans on joining Twitter in the near future.

    Hey, you guys are all on my blogroll, so if I do get in that directory, in a sense, so will you.

  5. Understood, Kirk. However, the Las Vegas Review Journal is NOT the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Las Vegas Review Journal is the stuff for wrapping fish or lining the bottom of the bird cage.

  6. Sorry to hear that, Les. You want to establish a dual residency in both Cleveland and Las Vegas? That might get you in. We don't have any deserts like you have back home, but we have a very nice Metropark system if you need that nature fix. Plus, the voters approved a casino last fall. That should give this city that Vegas feel.

  7. Hey, I'd give it a shot! Drew Carey and friends told me Cleveland ROCKS. And I do NOTHING Las Vegas-y, so I wouldn't miss anything about casinos. Just my desert and my A1 Carpet Care . . . .

  8. What's the temperature off the lake this time of year -14?

  9. I'd have to ask my brother. He lives something like two streets away from the lake, whereas I live in Strongsville, where, once the lake's frozen over, it's a tad warmer. But we've been experiencing the January thaw for the past week or so, and the temperatures have been in the 40s.
