A funny thing happened on the way to this post…I actually found it in the draft pile called “It’s almost July!” The dates may be in the past, but the links all still work! Rather than delete it and start over, I’ve left it as is. Below is the original post as it was saved back in June. Boy, how time flies!
It’s hard to believe that June is almost over. This means that July is here, bringing with it Independence Day, fireworks, parades, and backyard parties. It’s a great time of year even though it always seems to go by just in a flash. There are a ton of fun things happening around the state this coming weekend to celebrate the 4th of July. You can visit our calendar at Notes on the State of New Jersey to see some of the events.
The website is coming along nicely. We’ve got a few new contributors on board, and everyone is working on some pretty fabulous stuff. This week, Misty Layne shared her first experience with the Jersey shore and Cristina Fowler shared her own memories of visiting the shore when she was a kid. There is a new archive page for all the articles published, and the articles now feature pictures – so be sure to check out some of the updates we’ve made.
Also, there’s a form now for anyone interested in advertising information. If you know of a business or service that wants to advertise to a NJ audience, make sure to have them fill out the form!
Catching Up – new Clash of Influence CD
A while back, I had the pleasure of meeting a New Jersey band, Clash of Influence. These guys have come a long way since those first shows I saw and my interview with them. In fact, they recently released a new CD called Clash of Influence. When I got my copy, the songs went immediately into my iTunes account so I could listen to the recordings that sound so much like the band’s awesome, live performances.
