Community Visual Journalism Site Launched

Taking a cue from David Hobby, aka @Strobist, and his community visual journalism site HoCo360, today I launched a LaneCounty360 in the same paradigm as David’s philosophy for covering his area of Howard County in Maryland.

LaneCounty360 will cover my home area of Lane County, Oregon.  After struggling with various limiting layout options from Blogger, Tumblr and WordPress free hosting, I elected to get the domain name and self host on WordPress.  The site is elegant and simple.  No fancy banner ads or effects, just a curation of moments in time with possible captions to describe a moment from around the Lane County Oregon area.

For those local followers, I hope to have your support in developing a following and if you have any local story ideas that are unique, please shoot me an email via the Tip Us page or you can also follow via twitter at @LaneCounty360.

My deepest thanks to David Hobby for helping me find a compass point.
