Glasgow's strathclyde university offers texting class

Mobile phone users of a certain age are eager to join university seminars that unlock the world of texting. Why not play ball and attend seminars at the same time huh? Evolution at it’s best! Lasting for two hours and costing a mere £3 ($5.40), Glasgow's Strathclyde University's Lifelong Learning Centre is already oversubscribed for the classes, which begin on 1 September. In an alliance with Orange, expert instructors will take students through the "art", teaching them how to write and send a message on their phones.
In separate two-hour seminars they may also learn other skills, such as filing names and telephone numbers into a mobile phone address book.
Previously, the courses had only been offered to those over 50, but inquiries from a younger age profile proved that many people now aged 30 to 40 are trapped on the "cusp" of a technology revolution.
... Our courses provide an opportunity to learn the new technology with like-minded people, without having the feeling that they are somehow behind the times.

Blogs have been known to comment on a variety of issues, ranging from the latest "Here is what I think" type of blog to the latest big movie release to the newest computer on the market. Your blog is very topic specific and should do very well. Keep up the good work.

Also, you might want to look at two very important, topic-specific blogs for some ideas. MediaNews (www.poynter.org/medianews) and (www.iwantmedia.com). First started in 1999 as independent sites. Romenesko's site is particularly interesting for being a must read for media insiders, often creating a hot debate throughout the journalism community, because of its unique combining of news and rumors.
