Yeah, I thought I'd do blog posts for starters. I suspect the folks here are going to be at the more digitally-literate end of the spectrum so I was wondering if there's anything specific that could be done with/for them.

Hangouts might present some interesting possibilities too…

Linking up Birmingham's artistic and creative communities
Introduction
Created in Birmingham is a weblog that has been written on an almost daily basis since 1 December 2006, promoting, discussing and being part of Birmingham’s vibrant creative community.

It is currently run by Chris Unitt who runs the social media team at Made Media.

CiB is also on Twitter and on Facebook.

There are two reasons for this blog:
  • To find out what’s going on around Birmingham and promote it
  • To show that blogging is a simple and effective way of engaging with audiences online
