I’m back…newspapers are not

So, I’ve neglected this blog for far too long. Maybe because I was down looking at the readership numbers, maybe I was busy…probably just lazy.

Anyway, I’m going to make a real effort at building this blog and making something out of it, and an ad I heard on the radio today SCREAMED for me to get back to blogging.

I heard an ad for our local newspaper here in Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is running a contest currently. They are putting some “hidden” items in various parts/stories/etc of the daily paper. You find them, enter them in this contest to potentially win prizes.

Wow, if this isn’t the death knell for print newspapers, I don’t know what is.

You can’t put content interesting enough in for people to actually READ the paper, you have to make a contest out of it for peopl

e to read.

Just shows the direction things are taking. I don’t think this will be the salvation for the print world…
