My journalism students at Webster University have to keep blogs as part of the class, so I guess it's only fair that I start keeping up mine again, too.

This class is made up of a small but scrappy group of journalists who will be starting and running Vienna Voice--what I believe to be Vienna's first English-language online journal--news and features for the ex-pat community.

Stories are busily being reported now--a feature on a new type of co-op work space, one on a controversial new gambling law, a quirky piece on the village of Tamsweg, and one on "Balkanstrasse;' another is about Lower Austria's expansive Roman exhibit, and finally, a look at what it takes to make it as a musician in Vienna.

Vienna Voice will also offer video, photo essays, audio clips, twitter feeds, free trips to Mars....

We'll be up and running shortly and I can't wait to post a link.

A few of those blogs, however, can be found now:
