(Concerned as I am about the fate of newspapers, I'm joining "links" today with other bloggers who want to keep our hometown paper alive. My other posts about newspapers here.)
We, particularly those of us in New England, have all read recently about the threat of possible closure faced by the Boston Globe. A number of Boston-based bloggers who care about the continued existence of the Globe have banded together in conducting a blog rally. We are simultaneously posting this paragraph to solicit your ideas of steps the Globe could take to improve its financial picture:
We view the Globe as an important community resource. And, we think that lots of people in the region agree and might have creative ideas that might help in this situation. So, here's your chance. Please don't submit nasty comments or sarcasm: Use this forum for thoughtful and interesting steps you would recommend to the management that would improve readership, enhance the Globe's community presence, and make money. Who knows-- someone here might come up with an idea that will work, or at least help.
Thank you from the community of bloggers (and please feel free to pick this up and put on your blog).
