20070110 Tapscott and Surber have moved their blogs to newspapers

Mark Tapscott and Don Surber have moved their blogs to newspapers.

January 10th, 2007

Don Surber has moved “Surber” to the Charleston Dailey Mail.

Mark Tapscott has moved “Tapscott’s Copy Desk Blog” to The Examiner.

For the last post on “Tapscott’s Copy Desk Blog,” go here.

For a post on “Surber,” in which he discusses moving his blog and that “Blogs may save afternoon newspapers,” go here.

These are two of my favorite blogs and I’m quite fascinated by this latest turn of events.

Although "The Tentacle" is online publication; I have one foot in the traditional print media and one foot in the blogosphere. In addition to The Tentacle online publication, I have a weekly column and I write articles for “The Westminster Eagle:” and a blog, “The Winchester Report.”

I like the independence of having a stand-alone blog. But then again, the idea of being paid for something I am already doing – and enjoy doing for long hours; is well, rather intriguing…

On the contrary, as much I enjoy the solitary of having a stand-alone blog, with no word limit and no one to answer to but my readers (and my wife,) I rather enjoy working my editors on the columns at The Tentacle and the Westminster Eagle

Mr. Surber’s post, “Blogs may save afternoon newspapers,” is an interesting read…

Your thoughts?
