Brand Spankin' New

As DB & Gort are probably already aware, I spend the majority of my time online on a social networking website called Twitter these days. DB has recently blogged about the possibility of whether or not Facebook and Twitter are killing blogging. I don't agree. It's true that I don't blog as much as I used to now that those websites are around, but I don't have as much time as I had in the past to write out a full blog entry (being mother of 2 who works close to 50 hours a week). Twitter is a quick 140 character way to let everyone I'm still alive. I've grown a bit attached to the #NEPA Twitter community and you'd be surprised to know that a great deal of them have blogs, and here's an even bigger shock.....BLOGS THAT THEY ACTUALLY UPDATE! The long running inside joke about being listed on NEPA Blogs is that once your blog is posted to the directory, blog dies out. I hope that is not the case with our new fresh meat. Enjoy enjoy!

NEPA Bride

From the Inbox:
NEPA Bride

I’m a 25 year bride located in Northeast Pennsylvania, planning an October 2010 wedding. I love reading about unique and fun weddings and I’m hoping to create a day that truly reflects myself and my guy. We want to break out of the traditional, stuffy kind of weddings that seem to be the norm here. We want to DIY what we can and create a fun and festive party to celebrate our love with all our friends I want to document this process for a few reasons. First, to have and keep for myself, my friends and my family. Second, to share my experiences in the hopes it helps other NEPA brides. Our area of the country often seems to be behind the times with the latest trends and styles, so I hope any gems I find benefit you! Finally, to really start to get a sense on what makes a marriage. There’s a lot of ‘wedding stuff’ out there, and goodness knows I’ll be talking about it. But I also want to reflect on the larger issues of marriage as I head into this new chapter of my life.

Remember, if you blog about Northeastern PA, or blog from Northeastern PA, or used to be from Northeastern PA and have a blog, please let us know and we'll list you here on NEPA Blogs!

Splashdown: Natural Gas drilling

Natural gas drilling and its social and environmental consequences are going to be an increasing concern as more wells are drilled and more people (and aquafiers, and waterways) are affected. Here's one blog focusing on "blogging from nepa about gas drilling... here and across the u.s. " I expect there will be more.
