Empower young bloggers to LINK US UP!

Fellow blogger and Asset Builder, Richard, contacted me to suggest tagging my posts with hchy (the tag for Healthy Communities/Healthy Youth) where appropriate. I thought this was a great idea, so visited technorati to do so.

But his and mine are the only blogs tagged.

So I started thinking this could be a great summer challenge for all Healthy Communities/Healthy Youth initiatives. Youth tend to have far better computer skills than their adult counterparts, so why not ask them to help us blog this summer?

Between Blogger, MySpace, and all the other free sites out there, I think we could have a significant web of Asset Builders by the end of the summer. If we tagged our posts, we could stay connected with a blogging community.

Just one quick Blogger search of the terms "developmental assets" results in several pages of matches, including:

Mountain Masala

Darien Community Matters and

Peg Kerr's Journal

Portage County Alliance for Youth

I think this is an untapped opportunity.

What do you think? Please comment!
