The New Blog Peoria Project¬†was created to encourage Central Illinois residents to engage in the practice of CITIZEN JOURNALISM. The 1st Amendment was created to give every citizen the freedom of the press. This has evolved to mean, “freedom of the press belongs to those who own the presses.” Don’t believe me? Get a job for the mainstream media and then DEMAND they print an editorial against the interests of the publisher.

The WordPress blogging platform (when attached to your own server) gives everyone the power of the press. Everyone.

You can sit back and whine and moan about the low quality of your hometown’s daily newspaper. Of you can get a blog and do something about it.

Don’t believe me? Then SIGN UP FOR A BLOG and give it a whirl.

You will end up with a high-quality WordPress blog. You will get all the quality support possible from me, and I’ve been using WordPress for more than 10 years. I’ve been a journalist at both mainstream AND citizen media sites for more than 30 years.
