  • thank you for the update.

  • Aa,

    Yes we have ceased being a newspaper and there’s no doubt we’ve begun to do different things now that we’re a 24-7 website.
    We still cover all the same things we used to as a weekly newspaper, but back then we would only write about a dozen stories per week. Could you imagine if we only updated this site 12 times per week, how infrequently people would visit it?
    So we do more webcentric things like podcasts, videos, live blogs and briefings. This enables us to update the site more than 40 times a week.
    That doesn’t mean we don’t still have the same 12 news stories that would have gone in the newspaper if there was one. We’re just filling the website with other things for people to chew on, while we work on reporting the hard news.
    And this has worked for us. Traffic to our site has more than doubled over the past several months.
    We’re certainly open to suggestions if there are other things you’d like to see us cover more of.

    Thanks,
