DISD budget crisis fuels blog traffic
At Beatblogging.org they're chronicling the growth in our schools blog since the Dallas Independent School District discovered it would have to lay off hundreds of teachers to close a multi-million dollar budget gap.
Fischer and Hobbs have been able to greatly increase traffic to their blog while also encouraging more conversations in the community. They have done this by giving people unprecedented information and new level of coverage during a crisis.
The post also gives Hobbs props for her liveblogging using CoverItLive.
