OCVP Orientation

Today we held the orientation for the first group of bloggers in the Oakland Community Voice project.

Tony started us off with a fantastic introduction. He told us about how he used to be a radio talk show host and spoke about issues in the community. He came to learn that just becuase people were “hearing it” didn’t mean they were “doing it”  – working the solutions. He decided that he would be the change he aimed to make and began working on solutions to community issues. He explained that the elder citizens have a voice, a history, a point of view that is important to be heard in the community and blogging is one way to get their voice out there.

 Tony also gave a blog example of a 94year old blogger:  who has become quite popular given all the followers who are commenting on his blog.

The participants trudged through a survey and signing up for a new yahoo account and then got to the fun stuff…creating their blogs. Once they got it they were so thrilled that they could publish publicly. Many of them were inspired…and this was just the orientation!
