As you are plainly aware, my blog is back up and running and looking much better than the “can’t access database” message you’d have received a couple of days ago. But at least it’s up and running!
It still looks a little hellish because of this blog template. It’s not your run of the mill free template though. I purchased the full package of Revolution blog themes before they changed up how they did things there. They’re powerful templates; probably too much for what I’m doing, so it’ll take a bit to figure it out and make it look pretty.
So, if you can be patient while I figure it all out, that would be great! Any tips on how to make it look better or get it working are certainly appreciated.
The future of journalism
The future of the fourth estate has been in doubt lately as media organizations have been folding, closing, laying off and generally suffering through the recession.
It’s a serious situation and it’s one I am concerned about. Keep an eye out for my take on what’s happening and how the journalism business might consider changing. I think if it goes the way I think it may, it would be a good thing for everyone.
I think it’d be best to just do a series of articles instead of a giant essay.
I’ll let you know now that blogging and social media such as Twitter will NOT be replacing the mainstream media, so get that out of your head right now. They’ll be part of it, but won’t replace it.
