Links of Interest (At Least to Me) 22/09/06

The news doesn’t look too good for print news. If you have read many of my posts on this topic you will know that I don’t fully buy the whole print will die thing. Radio has not gone anywhere. Sure it’s not the force it was at it height but it still makes money and has adapted (Albeit painfully) to the new reality. Still this post from The Editors Weblog [via Buzzmachine] is interesting because it gives a French perspective and one particular Frenchman: Arnaud Lagadère.

Seems like a lot of news to down the spirits of journalists. Though this news, I think, should really cheer them up. NewsAssignment.net has been given a $100,000 financing gift by Reuters. Looks like the project will definitely float now which is exciting.

Jennifer Jackson has an interesting post today about connections, agent vs. author time and some other stuff all riffing off a post she highlights. Both are worth reading.

Find of the Month


Just read two posts by Bloglily which I can only describe as some of the best blog posts ever. One of the great things about WordPress is that it has an exciting and vibrant set of bloggers who are deeply into writing, prose and literature. Ranging from Litlove’s Tales from the Reading Room to Bloglily’s site there is so much on offer. I have decided today that Bloglily is my Find of the Month for September 2006.
Why?
Because she is so full of enthusiasm for everyone’s work, because her discussion is free and open and elegant, because she never disappoints with a post and because her encouragement and spirit are inspirational to everyone.
Go visit BL Here.

  1. Aw. You’re a very sweet guy Eoin. I’m glad you come and visit and enjoy yourself while you’re there. I certainly do when I come over here! (And thank you Courtney, I feel the exact same way about you.) xo, BL

  2. I agree about BlogLily’s blog – it’s always a great read. And you are right about her comments: they are always spot-on and sensitive. Perhaps having a good blog is not only about being a good writer, but also about being a good reader, as she so patently is.
