  Bloggers! Canadian Newspapers Need You!
Mark Hamilton has an interesting article about newspaper blogging in Canada over at Blue Plate Special. The upshot: Canadian Newspapers are lagging far behind the USA in using blogs to "to extend their storytelling, or to bring voice to their web sites" and few "have tapped into their local blogosphere to increase their coverage or spread the local conversation."

Hamilton does point out a few bright lights- Andrew Coyne, and Antonia Zerbisias, as well as the Toronto Star and the Edmonton Journal.

So, uh, all you other papers out there...looking for a blogger? I work for surprisingly cheap.
Thank God I read this twice because I actually thought you were referring to the one and only Luke, I really am educated, I swear! But I digress, your writing is very intelligent and witty. Two things that Canada needs desperately, eh?
Thanks for the kind words, Stephania...but you'd better watch out for us Canadians. We're taking over, one hockey arena at a time.
I work 'for' surprisingly cheap, too ... :-)

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
