Business Monday: No Local Content

The News-Sentinel BusinessMonday section published yesterday featured a cover story on blogging by small business. This is a topic of no small interest for readers of Indiana Parley.

The cover story on pages 6 and 7 of the BusinessMonday section was actually two stories.

Neither story originated with the News-Sentinel. One was from the Orange County Register; the other was from the Akron Beacon-Journal. That is, it was written by current Indianapolis Star reporter Erika D. Smith when she worked for the Akron Beacon-Journal.

The story dates back at least to May of 2005. It was published in the Arizona Republic on May 07, 2005.

There were seven other stories in the BusinessMonday section. None of those originated in Fort Wayne. There were three by-lined columns in BusinessMonday in addition to the syndicated content by The Motley Fool. None of those originated in Fort Wayne.

The only Fort Wayne content were the ads (St. Vincent's Villa can be yours for $3,200.000) and compilations of stock listings and the content of press releases regarding people or upcoming seminars.

Despite the evidence of further decline in the News-Sentinel's committment or ability to provide a modicum of Fort Wayne material we would still recommend you read both blogging stories. There's some good stuff in there.

You can read Jan Norman's article here in the Portsmouth NH newspaper.

Note: IP has found a link to the Erika Smith story from April 2005.
