I’ve noticed that nothing brings participants out of the woodwork here like a post about the Charlottesville school system. A whole new crowd got involved during the Scottie Griffin fiasco, parents who normally wouldn’t participate in blogs, and many of them continue to read. I think somebody — ideally a parent of one or more children in the C’ville public schools — could provide a great service by creating a blog about the ups and downs Charlottesville school system. I’d be happy to help somebody set up such a blog; contact me if you’re interested.
Also, Jennifer is hosting this week’s C’ville Blog Carnival, so if you’re a blogger that wants to brag about a recent blog entry or a blog-reader that wants something you’ve seen to be read more widely, e-mail her. And if you’re a local blogger and you want to have many hundreds of people descend on your site, please volunteer to host the carnival in an upcoming week.
