Last night I went up to the library to hear a program by some local songwriters. I thought I could make a story out of it for my news blog -- and indeed, it worked out really well. At first I was worried because they were pretty much just singing, but they talked enough about their songs that I could cobble together a story. I added some video, and voila! Hyperlocal journalism at its best! (If I do say so myself.)
If you watch only one video, choose the first one. That woman was terrific.
I'm glad this came together, because I didn't have anything else to post. Plus I was stressed out last night -- I didn't even have time to eat dinner before racing off to this event, and then I had to wrestle with some large video files to get them down to a manageable size. So at least something came of it.
