Tuesday Thinger: Go Local!

Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.

Nicchic over at Obsessed With Books had a great comment last week, and was wondering if other LT members found the Local section useful.

Once you have set up your location (in your profile I believe), you can go to the Local tab and see different venues (bookstores, libraries, etc) and events (book signings, book readings, etc).

There is a trick to using the local tab! SOMEONE has to put the information in there.

Questions: When you click on the Local tab, do you see any information?Do you find the information you see useful? Have you added any information? If you don't already use the Local tab, is it something you would use more often if there were more events listed?

My Answer:
When I first visited Local for the first time, my area was completely blank, so I didn't know what it was all about. A few months ago, I visited again to start adding information in myself, and realized that someone else is also FINALLY adding stuff for my area - how fun!

I have seen a few fun events I'd like to go to, but have yet to attend any.

I think the information that shows under Local in my area now is more useful, but it really depends on how many people are updating the information.

Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!

I haven't gone to the local section in ages. We haven't had much going on around the Tulsa area though so I don't think anyone has added anything. I added most of the local libraries and someone else from around here added all the used bookstores.

I've added a few things - libraries and bookstores mostly.

Oh, and yes, I checked out the local tab and added my post here.

I've never found anything useful under Local, but after reading this, I just added an event!

Did we get some chinese participants? LOL!

Here's my answer for the week:

Thanks as always for the the thought provoking questions. I have posted my response,

Here's my answer.

The short version is: I don't use it, and no-one else does either.

Sorry to see that you've gotten hit by spammers! You should just delete those, hopefully they will go away. I've had them and had to moderate comments for awhile.

I didn't realize that there was a local tab as when I would check local info on my home page there was never anything listed there. There is nothing listed local to me but many local stores/libraries statewide. There is a writer's conference listed also. I will definitely check this more often. Thanks for highlightint this feature.
