Blog Rally to Help the Boston Globe

4/07/2009 12:01:00 AM
As many of you read on the front page this past weekend. The Boston Globe has been threatened with closure by it's parent company The New York Times Company. And because I'm sure we all feel the same way abut anything NYC related (*cough* Yankees), some of us bloggers are trying to get the word out and raise awareness.

"We have all read recently about the threat of possible closure faced by the Boston Globe. A number of Boston-based bloggers who care about the continued existence of the Globe have banded together in conducting a blog rally. We are simultaneously posting this paragraph to solicit your ideas of steps the Globe could take to improve its financial picture.

"We view the Globe as an important community resource, and we think that lots of people in the region agree and might have creative ideas that might help in this situation. So, here's your chance. Please don't write with nasty comments and sarcasm: Use this forum for thoughtful and interesting steps you would recommend to the management that would improve readership, enhance the Globe's community presence, and make money. Who knows, someone here might come up with an idea that will work, or at least help. Thank you."

  1. Jon Said,

    I subscribed to the globe for a while but recently stopped because I can just read it online. It seems that since there are so many students in Boston they should do more to target that group. I think doing a better events section would be nice something like stuff at night. The events they usually list are not that interesting and are generic like blue man group M-F. Also they have recently been doing lots of articles about finding people to date in Boston but haven't set up events for these people to meet each other. Also advertising their reduced student rate for subscriptions could be useful.

    The globe should spend less time trying to get their leads by contacting people through facebook. Its annoying and just sad try doing some real reporting. And if you don't have any leads don't print it instead of trying to create a story.
