Blogger Spotlight: The Chester City Blog

Our Blogger Spotlight is:

The Chester City Blog by Stefan Roots.

Why did you decide to start blogging?

I was publishing a community newspaper and was getting tired of all the work it involved. When the local paper said they were looking for community bloggers, I took them up on the offer and morphed the paper into a blog.

When people come to your blog, what will they find?

Primarily it's information for and about the people of Chester, Pennsylvania. Since most of the population are low income blacks, you'll find issues, opinions, and commentary that affect all low income blacks. A lot of the posts are from press releases and other submissions. Many more are links to articles from the local press.

What's the promise you make to people who visit your blog?

Presenting Chester City's news and views to those who want to know more of what's going on in the City besides the stories they read in the paper.

Who are your blogging inspirations or heroes?

As much as I enjoy blogging, I really don't follow any bloggers. However, I always check in on the Black Weblog Awards to see who's doing what. I was thrilled to meet many of them in Philly last year.
