Colorado Springs, CO (July 16, 2014). The National Federation of
the Blind of Colorado this week announced that The Blind Coloradan will be
changing formats to bring readers more timely, empowering information and
opinion. The Blind Coloradan will now evolve into a blog Blind Coloradan theblindcoloradan.blogspot.com.
According to Kevan Worley, who has edited The Blind Coloradan in recent years,
"This is very exciting for readers who really want to stay in the know. We
will now be able to better target our creativity and use of valuable time to
bring more immediate information, analysis, and opinion to our readers, both
within and outside of our immediate Federation family. We can more effectively
meet the needs of our readers through a more relevant, accessible, 21st Century
solution. I look forward to collaborating with Jessica Beecham and all future
contributors to make our new blog a powerful tool of communication and
For over three years, the NFB of Colorado newsletter, The Blind
Coloradan, has published three to four times per year. It has been inspired by
the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado's best intention, expansive
creativity, and earnest commitment to bring each reader profiles, information,
event summaries, resolutions, and convention reports. The newsletter quickly
began to become too dense. It began to resemble a news magazine rather than a
breezy, up-to-date news bulletin. It became daunting to write and even more
daunting to read. For quite some time now, the organization has also had a blog. NFB
CO has determined that the best use of time, effort, and imagination would be
to target resources more effectively and encourage everyone to read the new
Blind Colorada blog. Please send news people can use, notices of upcoming
chapter activities, and opinion to Kevan Worley or Jessica Beecham. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The affiliate
plans to keep the blog lively and up-to-date. NFB CO also plans to add the blog
to the local news channel on NFBNewsline. So, check the blog, read the blog,
and share the blog with others theblindcoloradan.blogspot.com.
