Beyond that, the conversation was fascinating and inspiring. Levy says she and Frink started their blog, Nashvillest when both were laid off. Frink got the idea while spending the summer in DC and following a similar blog there. They aren't making money yet, but they enjoy doing the blog. Frink does the news updates each morning while Levy goes through 200 different national sources to gather news and information. (Who says young people don't consume information on the web, Levy is 22.) When they redo the website, they plan to have more powerful platform to support ads and other revenue generation tools. Levy says they get more than a thousand hits a day. Levy says food posts are really popular.
And, they take full advantage of the network economy and let the audience tell them what to write. Levy says,
"You want to write what people WANT to read about."Morgan also told me about some local blogs to check out: News Coma, Tiny Cat Pants and Dave Made That.
