Lose a Blog, Gain a Better Website
Sunday, August 06, 2006 :::
The NV Daily's experiment in blogging appears to be over (for now). As explained in the post, the paper has decided to end its "experiment" with a blog and instead, will offer more complete access to stories at its main website.
I'm not sure what to think of the move, but I can understand the business case underlying the paper's decision. One thing the blog was able to do -- and very effectively -- was to showcase the reporting skills of Garren Shipley. That he has not yet been scooped-up by a larger paper is puzzling (though perhaps if he were to sprinkle his prose with a few American Idol references, the TD would hire him in a second). His posts will be missed. But his reporting will continue.
