Express-News discovers blogs

The San Antonio Express-News has added a few blogs to its online publication. I can’t say there’s anything there that grabs my interest, but they do have a decent variety of topics, and I like the idea of temporary blogs for short-term events, like their Electronic Entertainment Expo blog. The Chron has done this in the past and did it again last week with the Dead Zone Diaries, which was a report from a research vessel on a swath of oxygen-depleted water that forms each summer in the Gulf of Mexico. The E-N also has the good taste to link to several San Antonio and Texas political bloggers, including yours truly. Thanks to The Jeffersonian for the catch.

    My paper tried the temporary blog thing when the Lady Bears basketball team were making their run at the NCAA championship. It worked out really well.

    Still, I think it is a good idea for newspapers, especially small dailies, to start moving some part of their newsroom toward totally Web-based production. It is the wave of the future, especially with declining readership and increased costs for production. Yet, newspapers don’t do that.

    Blogs offer a really cheap way to begin offering Web-only content, but so many newspapers have resisted. I really can’t understand why.
