More than 130 cold cases are featured on my blog and that list is growing. You can easily find them under the cases tab in the grey top menu bar. Trial dates from some cases I am watching are highlighted in the right margin.
Every month, I host two chats on Twitter: #CrimeChat and #Tours&Carnivals. The schedules are in the right margin.
- #CrimeChat is about cold cases, book reviews, forensics, and anything related to unsolved homicides. The 2014 schedule will be posted soon.
- #Tours&Carnivals explores the monthly themed blog posts and the guest bloggers. It is an excellent way to network with other bloggers, to find a host for your guest posts, and to exchange tips about blogging in general. These chats start in 2014.
Every month, my blog features a “Case of the Month” to highlight a victim’s story. You can find that under the “Case of the Month” tab in the green top menu bar.
A project that I am working on with Lisa Bleakley (the Executive Director of Tourism at Montgomery County/Christiansburg/Blacksburg, VA) is to get the first NRV Blogging Convention off the ground. Lisa and I are looking for bloggers (established and beginners), companies, and organizations to sponsor, present talks, and conduct workshops. For planning purposed, we are thinking about the fall of 2014 after the beginning of the new college/school year. Blogging conventions take place all over the USA but none are here in the New River Valley of Virginia. That is not because there is a lack of interest or know-how. The NRV is full of local talent and knowledge. Let’s share and create a blogging community here in our NRV!
