Breaking News in Ann Arbor & Saline

By
Real Estate Agent with Missy Caulk TEAM

 

Picture 2

A2BreakingNews.com is a new community web site I have started.I heard about the Breaking News Sites from Pat Kitano of Domus Consulting. As soon as I heard of it, I contact Pat. What a great way to get Breaking News out to Ann Arbor and Saline.

Little did I know at the time that Pat, Kevin and the Breaking News sites would be honored at Inman with the Innovator of the Year Award. Inman Innovator Award 2009

A2BreakingNews is 100% community based.

Ann Arbor and Saline people can log on and get updated,with one the spot news surrounding Ann Arbor, Saline and Washtenaw County.

If you are on Twitter you can  follow and add your twitter feed. The Twitter account is  A2BreakingNews.

There are categories for different things, art, food, events, Wolverines, Saline, Ann Arbor, shopping, sporting events, jobs, classifieds, real estate.

When you post just use what is known in Twitter as a hash tag. It looks like this #. So if you are posting a tweet or want to add a feed just use the # in front of the category you want it posted in.

A2Breaking News will be a spot you can find all the current news on.

Here is an example for a restaurant owner:

You are a restaurant and want to post the lunch or dinner special, just use #A2BNfood. Then it will post right in the food category.

Other categories to use the # hash tag in are:

News: #a2bnnews
Saline: #a2bnsaline
Events: #a2bnevents
Shopping: #a2bnshop
Foodie: #a2bnfood
Sports: #a2bnsports
Wolverines: #wolverines
Jobs: #a2bnjobs
Classifieds: #a2bnclass
Real Estate: #a2bnre
Uniquely Ann Arbor & Saline: #a2bnunique

Breaking News sites are all about giving hyperlocal content to your community via Twitter. (140 characters remember) Patrick has written many posts on it on his Activerain Blog, so go subscribe and read more about it. I know they have area's left.

Check out my A2BreakingNews.com, cool huh?

Missy - I missed Pat's blog about this and so glad you posted this.  I just sent Pat an email about getting one set up for New Haven which is the only one available in CT right now and it's where I live!

Hi Missy, Thanks for sharing this and I really appreciate the links. I will follow this up and take advantage of these great links from PAT.  BTW, did you mention that you shifted over to the MAC. I added a second monitor and love all the cool things you do with 2 screens and no settings required. Simply slide something over and open a new application in the original one. Very cool and both work. Great for doing MLS searches or e-mail and the Internet open and working at the same time.

Missy,

Every time I get used to something, here you are, as if falling from another planet with something new and cool.

Geez, how much energy you have, or all of you from other planets have it unlimited?

Hey Missy, I love your new BN site! Mine for Asheville needs my attention, but I LOVE Pat's Breaking News sites. I'm doing a Breaking Horse News site as well (also needs attention) and they are on my priority list to have my undivided attention. ;-)

Missy, I like the footer. It's going to save us time.....right? I always do a footer and it takes time to go get it and paste it in on the HTML side. Your funny....I did the same things and said "Wait" I'll have to work on this. The thing is I use different footers for different things....okay I'm confused as well!

Thanks Missy for the introduction to Breaking News! Appreciate all the kind words and did get many responses from you that I'll follow up on.

Missy, I just don't know how you manage to keep on the cutting edge of all this "stuff". I hope you don't mind, I just say a few steps behind you, let you lead the way and then incorporate what I can. You're an inspiration to say the least!

Missy- I took Pat's webinars and they pitched this idea a lot. You are in a young community so it will be perfect for Ann Arbor. Here, it would not go over so well since only a few people here twitter, I think it increased from 2 to about 12 over the last year, LOL!

It's cool to get the "innovator of the year" right out of your backyard.  However, I have all but given up on Twit....should I give it up?  Should I rethink it?
