Caryn Ann Harlos is going to the NM convention, but she will be there as a speaker and region rep so may not have time to blog anything. However if she does she is welcome to either use this post’s comment section or create another one, whichever works best. If anyone on the ground in any of these states would like to provide live or semi-live coverage of their conventions, or links to where such coverage is being provided, please also feel free to use the comments on this post. If you are not an IPR writer/editor and want a separate thread so as not to mix up the liveblogs between states let us know and we’ll set you up one (after you verify that you are able to do the coverage where you are). And again, if you are good with using the same thread, I am too.
After the fact coverage, links to news stories and social media coverage elsewhere, links to videos and photostreams, all welcome as well.
