Friends of the Poor Walk

Society of St. Vincent DePaul Chicago President, Michael Harrington joined students this morning for the second annual Friends of the poor walk. Here's my report on how this year's was different than last year's.

Friends of the Poor Walk is just one in a series of events held at DePaul to celebrate St. Vincent's Week. Tomorrow is the last day in the series with Sunday Mass followed by an ice cream social. YUM!

A New Beginning

Where to begin? It has been a long time since I posted! Yet I see that I have managed to build a very small audience! Thank you for subscribing and I apologize for the lack of posts.

Initially when I began this blog it was only for class and to gain credit. Since the conclusion of that class back in March and an internship with the Chicago Tribune, I have gone back and forth on whether or not to keep this blog.

After some soul searching over the past month I found that the pros for keeping the blog outweigh the cons. I make a promise to you right now that I will be working hard to increase the frequency of the posts while working on the overall format and design of the blog.

The blog will continue to focus on DePaul Events and Stories. I will work hard to sprinkle in a few outside stories when I can though. You can also expect to see more video as well because I tend to focus mainly on broadcast journalism. However, that will not decrease the amount of written posts. It’s simply a way for me to express where my passion lies…and that is providing visual information to my audience. The blog serves the overwhelming call in my life which is to provide information that will help people. It's a great opportunity to have the cake and eat it too with AClarkCorner. For now, those people will be mainly DePaul students but I look forward to branching out at any opportunity.

I will also be making changes and playing around with the look, profile, etc. You can help me with the renovation of AClarkCorner by commenting and letting me know what you like and don’t like. Obviously, I’ll be designing something that fits my personality but I also want that “something,” to be user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing for you.

It’s good to be back.
