And So It Goes

And so it goes, the Observer's new web log, blog for the many who currently operate such a site. This blog will be the interactive offshoot for the Observer, Tucson and Southern Arizona's LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) weekly newspaper.

For the past thirty-two years, the Observer has informed Tucson and Southern Arizona's LGBT community of the happenings, goings-on, news and issues. For the past dozen years, the Observer has been online at http://www.tucsonobserver.com.

With the advent of the Internet, the information age has changed and so The Observer will as well, but continuing with its practice of letting people know what is happening on issues of concern and how it affects them.

Although with this outlet, readers of the publication will have another avenue to travel with this blog, comment on postings and most importantly, take action when needed.

Where will this blog take the editors, writers, staff and most importantly, the readers, who knows? The hope will be of this as a place for the Tucson and Southern Arizona LGBT, straight supportive and HIV/AIDS communities to come together to learn, be aware, communicate and most importantly, to leave the site informed because with knowledge comes power and for any community to succeed, one must be empowered.

So it begins, the Tucson Observer blog.

And so it goes.

I was reading on-line about your blog and have added it to my personal favorites.

I'll also add a link to it on my link blog: LGBT Rainbow Links.

Good luck and I look forward to reading it as well as The Weekly Observer on-line.
