  • Reds’ Opening Day

    Reds’ Opening Day Great seats. Sun trying to come out. Not as cold as I thought it would be. Thanks, Doug!

  • New blog design: I need one

    Ever since I moved Report This! to WordPress a couple years ago, my now-tired Minama Plus theme has served me well. But I envision this blog getting a makeover soon presumably through a new theme. There are several excellent ones out there (notice: not all are free), but which one and all the time involved…

  • Open Left:: An Election Without Parties

    I hope to be part of the change with the Driehaus for Congress Web site. Here’s what “Open Left” had to say about something I have become rather preachy about to those who will listen (and even a few who won’t): I’ve been browsing dozens of congressional candidate/incumbent campaign web sites and was stunned to…

  • Cincinnati blogger convention glee

    I was super happy that I was able to make it down to the Cincinnati Blogger Convention last week at one of my favorite places in all of Cincinnati, the Mercantile Library. Chris Messick – who has to be the world’s least grumpy librarian (he’s actually cheerful and friendly) – helped orchestrate the whole thing,…

  • Blog news

    I don’t talk about blog stats much – well, at all – because there isn’t really much to say. I average about 60 to 100 unique visitors a day – with random peaks and valleys – and that has been fairly consistent for several months. But a few weeks ago on April 17, when the…

  • All better

    Looks like upgrading to WordPress 2.5 solved my weird database problems, that I suspect might have been created my my cheapo Web hosting provider, IPowerWeb, when they upgraded their (our?) control panel and did some other wizardry. Now, the Web site is back up and running smoothly. Now, I’m thinking I might go ahead and…

  • This guy has the wrong idea

    I have been recently adding some content to this Web page, along with a much-needed “Contact Joe” form. Now you can find updates on the “Published Works” page, including my recent Cincinnati City Hall and Hamilton County goverment coverage for The Cincinnati Post. There are also links to two pieces written in the last few…

  • Why he Blogs, I Blog, too.

    Just about every journalist gets the daily e-mail from Florida’s Poytner Institute. Their slogan “everything you need to be a better journalist” is a good characterization of how useful the site and the organization has and continues to be for many working in the media. Their daily e-mails, especially one called “Romenesko”, is chock-full of…

  • Well, this looks different…

    It’s still me. Joe Wessels.net is just getting a new look. After much thought and prolonged discussion (years, really), I have finally revamped my Web site. Where’s the goat? He’s gone. Miss him? You can still view my Web site, as it was last updated by adding “old” in front of my old domain name.…

  • Updates to Web page

    I have made some minor updates to my personal Web page at www.joewessels.net. Most notably are adding photos of my niece’s birthday party (which I already wrote about on here), changing, adding and deleting photos in the “My Computer’s Slideshow” section, plus adding a page with photos I took earlier this year in Northside both…
