As George stated in the previous post, this blog is turning two years old.
Blogs are part of our culture now and part of journalism’s fabric. I write blogs and read blogs. They are important and shouldn’t be ignored.
I’ve enjoyed contributing to this blog. It allows me another outlet for news and opinion (and the occasional music piece). Unlike what some parents, athletes, coaches and fans think, not everything can squeeze into print. Blogs allow writers to empty out their notebooks and minds. Read them. They are a worthwhile supplement to the newspaper.
Here are two of my favorite Chicago blogs:
Whet Moser’s Chicagoland at the Chicago Reader.
The boys at Hear Ya for music.
We’re trying over here at Pioneer Press HQ to provide readers with unique insight and material you won’t find in the print pages. Keep coming back as we continue to grow.
