Editor’s note: Christmas Cheer
Thursday, December 23, 2004
The holidays, specifically Christmas, presents a special challenge for the small news organization. While larger organizations can merely have some canned columns prepared and have eager up and coming reporters to take the place of vacationing senior staffers, we just have Scotty. Now I’m not saying that Scotty is a bad reporter, but should I let him run the office from today until Monday. The answer is, maybe next year.
we are going to give you an extra long “Go Ask Alice”
So the decision is made. Rather than let Skippy have the reigns for the weekend, we are going to give you an extra long “Go Ask Alice”. Alice has been very excited about this column and has been working carefully to choose the right letters. This came as a relief to the rest of us that feared she would be hitting the Christmas cheer early.
We also have started to see a core group of regular readers, most of them relatives of Skippy.
We celebrated another milestone this week. We are now sitting on over 3000 hits. While many of these are due to BlogExplosion, we also have started to see a core group of regular readers, most of them relatives of Skippy.
So a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at NewsBlog 5000 to all of you at home. We will be back on Monday with the news you want, the news you need, and the news you absolutely positively can not live without, but probably not until Monday.
