Goodbye Daily News

I don’t read the newspaper anymore. Once the subscription ran out, I didn’t bother to renew it. Why?

  • The paper’s grown smaller each month.
  • Most of the articles are AP and not local. Those that are local don’t cover my community.
  • It stopped being relevant. The same news that was written in the paper can be accessed online, television or via radio.

As I look up and down the street, I notice very few newspapers any more.

The sad part of not getting a newspaper is the lost touch with community related items. Even though we can get some of this information via local blogs – it would be nice to have a daily or weekly forum of community activities.

Know of any format or social networks that works for you and your community? Care to share?

Thanks!
