Q. How can you just let Gannett Blog slip away on Oct. 1?!
A. I haven't given up the notion that someone will start a blog or blogs to replace this one. The main reason I set such a long lead time was to help midwife (midhusband?) an orderly succession. I've proven the market, and the income potential. Without even really trying, I've been on schedule to pull in $15,000 in my first year. With more effort, someone could double that.
Gannett Blog has always been a project around citizen journalism. I showed that if you develop original content, and ask people to pay for it, they will! Now, the test is whether any of the thousands of readers pick up the baton.
