Blog Rally to help the Boston Globe [Apr. 6th, 2009|10:44 pm]
Ron Newman
We 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 write with nasty comments and 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.

(P.S. If you have a blog, please feel free to reprint this item and post it. Likewise, if you have a Twitter or Facebook account, please add this url as an update or to your status bar to help us reach more people.)

Is there perhaps one blog site where all comments should go? I'd like to support the Globe, but having people reply with suggestions in my own blog seems pointless, as no one would see it.

I'm going to suggest leaving your comment at Paul Levy's blog:

since that's where the 'rally' started, or here:

I actually left a comment in Paul Levy's blog just a few minutes before reading this. :-)

We'll see what he says.
