With the school year beginning to kick into high gear, I figure that there’s a little bit more that I can do on this blog than occasionally critique the RGJ or the Sagebrush, which is why I’ve decided to implement some new regular features which should have an impact on everyday student life here at UNR. They are:
- Start an ASUN Elections Blog: In the past, I’ve covered the ASUN elections for the Nevada Sagebrush, but the set-up and execution of the coverage was minimal, to say the least. That’s why I want to delve deeper into these candidates, and hopefully get a better idea of who they are, what they stand for, and if they know what they’re talking about. I won’t hide my biases here, and I promise to be transparent if I have a pre-existing relationship with anyone I cover. Primary elections are on March 7 & 8, so look for interviews, analysis and more in the coming weeks.
- Follow Friday- Blog edition: There’s a lot of talented bloggers and students at this university, so I want to start a weekly recurring feature about a student and their blog, in the vein of Twitter’s #FF (Follow Friday) hashtag. If you want your blog featured, feel free to email me.
I’ll begin working on these things next week, as I’m going to Portland for a leadership conference this weekend. If I don’t get mauled by hipsters, I’ll probably post a few pictures and blog a bit.
