Goin' with the flow

(May 17, 2010) We're keeeping pace with the 21st century. Because readers are doing more and more online, Recorder Community Newspapers are beefing up their online presence by adding blogs to their websites. When readers check out the latest community news online, they also can see postings by 40+ local bloggers who regularly communicate with words, pictures and/or videos among the 15 Recorder Newspapers' sites on the Internet.

Another small example of "goin' with the flow" is the recent change in the Associated Press Stylebook (our copyediting bible). Because of widespread usage, "website" replaces the original "Web site" as the listed spelling for this Internet term.

Any group or individual who would like to join the growing group of Recorder bloggers may call me at (908) 832-7420 or e-mail for information on this free real-time communication tool. You need only a computer and an e-mail address to create your blog. The setup is simple and we will effect the connection to your Recorder Newspaper's website.
