Welcome to Island Pulse
The Island Pulse News Team would like to welcome everyone to ‘Island Pulse’ which we established in June 2006, with aims, to inform, entertain and offer all Isle of Wight residents the opportunity of becoming actively involved in this independent online lifestyle magazine.
As a not-for-profit organisation ‘Island Pulse’ aims to provide a community online media news service, adding benefit to those who live and work on the Island and the many tourists that visit the Isle of Wight each year.
Island Pulse was unique as being the first publication dedicated to citizen journalism on the Isle of Wight, and with the help of the community this website has grown to play a major role as a prominent online information provider for the entire Island.
With thanks to the online community and regular contributions as ‘citizen journalists’ , our initial aim of integrating the Island Community has exceeded expectations, and this website for the Isle of Wight is now definately proving a place to be seen in.
We embrace community social enterprise and welcome shared experiences and successes, where ordinary people can write the news, get their pictures posted and express their views on any topic relating to Island life ‘live on the internet’.
Regular authors/contributors and news/pr reporters to Island Pulse (to name but a few) already include:
Jenny Button, Simon Butler, Carolyn Keene, Gavin Foster, Vincent Woods, Alison Toney, Ray Harrington-Vail, Laura Gardiner, Karen Bermingham, Simon Blackmore, Lucy Johnson, John Coles, Peta Stuart-Hunt, Trish Jenkins, Louay Habib, Clare Griffin, Andrew Cooper, Kath Harvey, Anna Symcox, Web Ferret, Kevin Wilson, Fred Caygill, Lisa Baum, Geri Ward, Melanie Swan
Whilst writing the News is second nature to trained journalists, the Island Pulse Team actively encourage our readers to do it too.
We are always looking for contributors to Citizen Media who would like to act as reporters in their chosen area, where they live, or would be arts critics who would like to have their say on the latest films, books or music.
It’s relatively simple to send in articles or pictures, especially via e-mail and suitable stories may also be picked up for possible publication in existing Island press.
‘Words and images will be with us forever, it is individual ingenuity that will deliver it’
The Island Pulse website and provision continues to evolve and we now are able to provide our visitors with Island Pulse Multimedia Streaming Video of News and Events.
If you are interested in contributing to the ‘Island Pulse’ and you have any news or events planned which may be of interest to the Island Community.
