“Open Mike” has been a tradition at Kirkland College events since its inception. We hope this site will act as a virtual microphone for your memories, reflections and opinion.
Anyone is welcome to browse. You can use the Navigation icons, the Search Box, or the drop-down Categories list to see what’s available. Any visitor can submit comments to articles on this site. Pnce your first comment is approved by a moderator, all subsequent comments will appear online immediately.
We encourage Kirkland community members to become contributing Authors, with the ability to post and edit their own stories and audiovisual memorabilia. Here’s how to get started:
1 – Send an email request with your real name (and class year if applicable) to: karchive (at) hamilton.edu. Past faculty, staff and “Kirkletonians” are welcome to contribute.
2 – We will respond with an invitation to create a free account at wordpress.com, our hosting service. (You do not need to create your own blog there, just a free username/password).
3 – We will use the email address you contacted us with to confirm your membership. You’ll get an acknowledgment, so you can then log in and start posting.
We are happy to provide assistance and support to those who are unfamiliar with WordPress (see also Tech Support). When you post an article, we ask that you select a Category from our list (Roots, Leaves, Flowers, or Fruit) to assist other in searching for content. You can also add a “tag” of your own choosing to describe your topic, which will also become searchable.
Any questions? Just click on “comment” below and we’ll respond on this page. Thanks for participating, and we look forward to reading your Kirkland stories.
Jennie, Jo and Judy
