Check out Some New Trend… today

Some New Trend stickersBlog fiction has remained, as described in its Wikipedia entry, an “isolated… fringe activity” area of the blogosphere. Well, there are a few writers here in Birmingham, AL that are hoping to change that with their latest collaborative effort, Some New Trend

This full length fiction story blog also doubles as a collection of posts in which contributors review books, music, and movies geared toward young adults. The site started in February, with the first chapter of the story being posted earlier this month. They have a presence on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

Elisa over at Bike Skirt did a write-up earlier this month on SNT and some of the folks contributing to it. After you’re finished checking it out, go over there and read the first two chapters (or at least consider supporting them by buying some schwag)!

Networking Birmingham launches

Folks here in the city are quite connected, but they’re always looking for new ways to do so. NetworkingBirmingham has recently launched, including listings from ten area chambers of commerce, including Birmingham, Homewood, Hoover, Mountain Brook and Trussville, as well as a variety of other networking events becoming a resource that allows folks to track business networking events throughout metro Birmingham.

Users of the site can create a customizable calendar of all the events they wish to attend. It was created by Man in the Maze Marketing with the idea of helping business men and women throughout Birmingham become more effective networkers. They will work hand-in-hand with various Chambers in the metro region to ensure that the most current and accurate information is listed on the website. Users of the website can submit all types of networking events to be included on the calendar as well.
