I led a workshop Tuesday at the Daily Local News in West Chester, Pa., for engagement editors in the Pennsylvania cluster of Digital First Media.
(The cluster actually includes the Trentonian and some weeklies in New Jersey, but the editor planning to come from the Trentonian had to cancel. And it includes the Charleston Daily Mail in West Virginia, but they watched the livestream rather than making the long drive to join us in person.)
Thanks (again) to all the participants and to Mandy Jenkins, Ivan Lajara, Buffy Andrews, Diane Hoffman and Vince Carey, who helped me lead it.
If you participated in the workshop, I don’t recommend going through all this at once. I asked you in the workshop to choose one or two things to do this week. I’d read the links and/or re-watch the slides related to those one or two things. And then move on next week to the thing(s) you decided to try next week. I encourage digging into a single topic rather than trying to absorb everything at once.
Here are slides from Mandy, Ivan, Vince and me:

Links for Mandy’s presentation on Social Wire:
Links for Diane Hoffman’s presentation on engaging bloggers in community projects:
(These are links to our video chats. Obviously we won’t have time to watch them, but I thought it’d be good to at least have the links on hand for anyone who wants to go back to watch them at a later date.)
Diane paired with Buffy in the Pinterest discussion. In addition to the Fill the Media Lab board linked above, she discussed these three Pinboards:
Ivan Lajara used these links (and embedded others in his slides):
While his slides are included in the presentation above, I’ll post them separately here, in case you’d prefer browsing a particular topic to going through the longer show:
For some reason, Buffy’s slides didn’t retain their formatting when I tried to put all the slides in a single show. So here are hers separately:
