One Damn Thing After Another

Skip the Website, Go Directly to the Blog

The Western Standard has figured out what the major media in Canada haven't, websites are so 1999. It has a new group blog, Shotgun, featuring Daiman Penny, Nick Packwood, Colby Cosh and, no doubt, others. Ezra Levant is on the curve.

In fact virtually every media outlet is likely to have a blog somewhere on its website by this time next year. It is just so much easier and fresher to blog than to put up HTML pages.

I know its early days at Shotgun; but one suggestion, put up comments. So far as I can see Andrew Coyne, aka the one man newspaper, has half his material coming from comments.

And, yes, I am available and remarkably inexpensive.
