WeatherTogether experienced exciting growth this October. Our team grew with four new blogs being started in the month. These new bloggers are located in three states not previously covered by WeatherTogether, along with making us now a multi-national community! Along with this, one blogger moved, which removed Idaho from the list and added Nevada. Here’s our list of bloggers added for the month of October:
Welsh Weather, by Harry Hayfield – Wales
Currently, the state with the most bloggers is Oregon at three.
These new blogs, plus a few that are just starting but not yet complete bring our total number of WeatherTogether blogs up to 18! We look forward to seeing more bloggers join in the coming months as WeatherTogether continues to integrate WeatherQuack bloggers into our family!
If you’re interested in starting your own weather blog, head over here to get started. We’d love to have you!
Along with new bloggers, we’ve also made some changes to the WeatherTogether experience. The biggest of these is the creation of a live chat, which allows you to chat directly with WeatherTogether bloggers and other members of our community right on our website! You can find the live chat by clicking this link. Stop by and say hello!
On top of the live chat, we’ve also provided visitors with better ways to contact the admin team, as well as added more webcams to that page. Contact forms can be found at this link, and webcams can be found here.
