What's new on Builder Online: blogs away!

WE'RE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD bloggers.

Blog: What an unlovely word for a lovely concept. A "blog," shorthand for "weblog," is defined by the online encyclopedia Wikipedia as "a type of website where entries are made, ... displayed in a reverse chronological order. Blogs often provide commentary or news on a particular subject. ... A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic."

We're headed toward blogs on BUILDER Online and our other Web sites, as a replacement for our current Talk section. New software will allow BUILDER Online bloggers to post from anywhere on the Web and for readers to join the fray with comments, links to related material, and informed opinions.

In the coming months, you'll see blogs from BUILDER editors and industry experts, offering you their candid takes on the home building industry, with opportunities for you to join the conversation.

But there's an even bigger opportunity: You can lead the conversation. We're looking for industry pros who want to start their own blogs on BUILDER Online.

If you have something to say about home building--if you have your own take, opinions to share, topics about which you are passionate--there's an opportunity to get involved by being one of our BUILDER bloggers.

If you're chosen, you'll get training on how to use the blog software (it's Web-based, so you can blog from any computer). All you need is the passion to share your views, the commitment to post regularly, and a way with words.

If you're interested or want more information, please e-mail e-Media editorial director John Butterfield at jbutterfield @hanleywood.com.
