Unbolting from our 'normal' way of doing things
When you do things the same way for so long, they just become normal. Sometimes you don't even think about why you do something they way you do, it's just that you've always done it that way, so... In my latest rant I talk about an ongoing experiment at The Times Herald. We're unbolting our journalists from their 'normal' routines. We want them to think digital first in everything they do when it comes to reporting, editing and publishing. Last week, we ran a story on the front page of The Times Herald because, and only because, it was incredible popular online. My question is whether our print readers found it as interesting. If you happen to be one of those people who read print and digital. Let me know that you thought of the story about the vanity plates PennDOT refused to issue.
