This morning I had a nice Twitter conversation with one of our readers.
He thought we could have compared boot fest to a different festival instead of Austin City Limits in a recent editorial.
He had great ideas, but if you don’t use Twitter, how would we know? Telepathy was the only thing I could think of.
Fortunately, we have another answer besides telepathy, although that would be really cool.
We discussed his ideas and I invited him to our editorial board meetings. Everyone can attend these. They are every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Advocate.
We also have a live broadcast of our news meetings at 10 a.m. every week day. We usually have in attendance Chris Cobler, Becky Cooper local editor, Robert Zavala multimedia editor, Todd Krainin photo/video editor and myself, interactivity editor.
You can chat with us and suggest story ideas, talk about what you saw in the paper, ask us questions or even tell us how you’re liking the weather.
I’ve always been interested in the news and I love reading newspapers. I felt that I could contribute and that I wanted to contribute so I majored in journalism.
You don’t have to major in journalism to contribute to your paper.
Next Monday, Oct. 24th, at 5:30 p.m. we will have a community session on how to contribute to the newspaper through our website. We hope you can make it.
Here is a guide to the many ways you can voice your opinion.
