Shameless self-promotion with a purpose
Today, The Gazette launched a very cool feature called your hub. You can check it out at coloradosprings.yourhub.com.
Basically, it's a Web site that allows anyone in the community to write stories and post photos. You can share news we can't get around to telling.
Want to write about wildlife in Cheyenne Canyon? You can. Need to publicize a deteriorating trail and ask for others to help you fix it? This is the place. Want to announce an event to hikers in your zip code? No problem. Have pictures from your epic ski day? Brag away. Let the whole city see them. We'll be on the lookout for your work here, too, and may promote your stories and photos on the Out There blog. Let's get the conversation going.
To see a hub in full swing, visit the Denver site.
We'll have to see how Your Hub develops. I'm sure with 400,000 people in the area we'll have some creative uses. In the mean time, check it out.
