Kentlands Bloggers in the News: Roy Kelley and Mike Janus


I received a call from a local newspaper reporter, Ellyn Wexler, advising that she was writing an article about local bloggers and she asked some questions about by blogging experience. After the phone interview, I received a call from the Managing Editor, Pam Schipper, asking me to meet with their photographer and another local blogger, Mike Janus.

Pam related that she had received many Google alerts with links to my blogs and that she loved my photographs. She “marveled’ at how my blogs are picked up so much by Google. The following link will take you to the article that was published by The Town Courier.

By the way, Mike Janus did join ActiveRain in response to my invitation.
