Calling All Bloggers - Call Me!


Several events here in town over the past week have shown that blogs are a force to be reckoned with in the media. You know it's on the radar when the mayor holds a conference call specifically for these opinionated typists.

I have received dozens of emails within the past week about blogging - how do you start a blog, what topics should I blog about, what tools or services do I need, etc...

So how about I open the phone lines on my radio show this Saturday to bloggers? I want to hear from Laurence. From Greg. Kuff, JK, Kevin, Anne, Jay, Tom, Perry and everyone else who blogs regularly from H-Town. Dwight said he is traveling this week but hopefully he will make an appearance one day soon.

Share your tricks of the trade with others who are trying to grasp this technology and create their own soapbox. At any rate you'll get a nice opportunity to pimp your blog! Bring it on, please.

The High-Tech Texan Show airs on TalkRadio 950 KPRC each Saturday from 12p-2p. You can listen live online and even tap into our videoconference (it WILL work, guaranteed). You got the number. See ya on the radio Saturday.

UPDATE: Careful all you guys who "borrow" software programs. Jenny Blank, Director of Enforcement for the Business Software Alliance, will be a guest on my show Saturday to talk about software piracy. The BSA's principal activity is trying to stop copyright infringement of software produced by its members - an activity it claims to cost the software industry over 11 billion dollars each year.

UPDATE 2: Guess who came to dinnner? Laurence Simon popped into the studio (not sure how he found the address or made it past the sleeping guard). He delivered a fresh baked loaf of jalapeno cheese bread and, since we were on the topic of bloggers, I asked him to sit down and give the 411 on blogging. We now know it all...


  • Okay, finally. This time, nothing going on to get in the way. Lots of sour cream and eggs and flour and jalapenos in the larder for baking the jalapeno-cheddar bread.

    So which building is the studio in?

  • Sorry I missed this. Saturday is Get Stuff Done Around The House Day, so without advanced notice, there's not much chance. Maybe next time!
