After going down in flames with its first two attempts at opinion blogging, and with a tentative re-entry into the world of instantaneous news coverage with the Orientation blog, Spectator is taking a third swing. A little corner notice in the paper this week read:
“The Opinion Section has launched a blog twice and was unsuccessful both times. Both versions lacked a cohesive voice and were half-hearted attempts at bringing the page online out of necessity to follow the journalistic trend towards the Internet. In its new form, the Opinion blog will feature a limited number of personal voices concerned with specific issues and ideas as well as daily photos and art. The hope is to utilize the Web asa medium for opinion rather than to merely extend the page to a new location. The blog will officially launch on Sunday, Sept. 23.”
We’re all for introspection. Looking forward to it.
Meanwhile, we’ve also heard that Spec will soon be launching a blog for Ahmadinejad coverage called…the AhmadineBlog. They’ll be sitting around in their PJs growing out their beards soon enough…
UPDATE, via a commenter: It’s here!
