Live interactive blogging here during the draft

New York Islander Fan Central | 6/13/2008 04:25:00 PM | | |
Were about one week away from the 2008 Entry Draft for the Islanders.

Some of you have asked me about the little grey box on the side of the blog and what a live interactive blog is being that the box has been there now for well over a month?

So how does this work?

Basically I will start a blog that will include a chat box which will appear where everyone can type in real time about the draft or anything Islanders I can set up live polls and some some other fun things but in essence it's a chat box and a running live blog for everyone that requires no registration.

Could go boom or bust, especially with the first night being only for the first round which could mean one pick and little else Islander-related. The start time for the 6/20 live blog is 6:45pm and for day two Saturday with nine picks I have scheduled the live blog to begin at 9:45am.

I hope some of my readers will be here and be a part of this. I can promise I will do all I can to provide a good blog with a ton of updates for everyone. I will be adding in more feeds to the top of the blog so we get as many updates as possible.

Anyway my thanks to everyone and hope to talk with you next Friday and Saturday.

Side note:
I'm running into some family circumstances but unless something goes seriously wrong in that department I do plan to having the scheduled live interactive blogs here at NYI Fan Central next Friday and Saturday.
