    A site note regarding chats and the DSM Register

    Good day Fanatics. I just wanted to give you all a heads up that starting this Thursday at 12:30, I will be doing one chat a week on the Des Moines Register's website. Immediately following that chat, it will be posted on our front page.

    I realize that many of you might be wondering why I would chat for the Register when I do it on CF regularly. The Register contacted me about doing this weeks ago in order to beef up their coverage of Iowa State heading into the football season.

    My theory is that this will do a few things things.

    - It will bring new eyeballs to CF, which in the end, helps our advertisers. Keeping our advertisers happy is extremely important to me and their support helps us make this the best site it can possibly be.

    - This is a good thing for Iowa State athletics in my opinion. With all of the talk of the budding Iowa-Nebraska rivalry and what not, I believe that getting as much Iowa State stuff out there as possible is a good thing.

    - Note that in no way, shape or form does this make me a DSM Register staff member. I am an employee/part-owner of CF doing one piece of content for the Register's site a week in order to promote our website. It is a lot like what I do on KXNO with the various shows I work with on that station.

    I read the chat that Randy had today. Is that actually you posting on those chats, or someone posing as you?

    Good thing for ISU and CF. Any way to improve ISU coverage on the Register is a good thing.

    Not me. Some wise guy does that every time Randy has a chat. No clue who it is.

    I was about to ask the same question since he was really specific about your whereabout on the weekend and Randy kind of confirmed it.

    I hoe this doesn't distract you from providing quality coupons.

    This might actually enhance his coupon giving ability. Since the register has coupons and all.

    And yes, it is great that the register is finally trying to equalize their coverage of the state schools.

    More than I've gotten so far.

    I didn't realize you were a KXNO staff member.

    Can't wait to read it, good job Chris. What does the AD think about these kinds of ventures? Do they have to be 'OKed'?
