It was recently announced that the print version of the Global Exclaimer is no more. This was (if not noble) a worthwhile experiment and possibly the future - as well as the past - of print journalism. And yet, life gets in the way of some of our more worthy pursuits – print periodicals cost time, effort, creativity and even something others want to hear about, but in the final analysis it costs money… who in these times has a surplus of that?
And so the GLOB is dead, if not for good reasons at least for reasons I can understand. From the ashes of the GLOB may rise another GLOB experiment – GLOB BLOG. Seems ironic somehow (this experiment within an experiment) - will it “take”, will GLOB BLOG soldier on in a different way from print GLOB? “The times they are a changin’” indeed.
I don’t know how GLOB BLOG (or any other BLOG for that matter) works – this is my first GLOB post solo, though I’ve made a comment or two on this BLOG before. Does GLOB BLOG live? Is anyone listening, or do I have to post something really inflammatory to gain notice of this world-wide web?
