Great (as always) thoughts by Jay Rosen on blogs and the newspapers that they can support. I’ve long held the belief that the future of blogging lies in bringing passionate writers and experts under the umbrellas established news organizations can provide. That way the publications tap into an influential niche audience that saves them the hiring and training costs of bringing on a full staff member and the blogger finds a great distribution outlet for their content. And if the revenues are shared equitably then it’s a win-win for everyone involved. It’s an especially likely scenario in light of rumors the Seattle Post-Intelligencer may go web-only.
