Hope you like the new look. I decided to change the blog format after realizing that I had the same format as Alan Mutter’s Newsosaur blog. And that was a bit too curmudgeonly for my tastes.
Speaking of new looks, gotta give Beachwood Reporter’s Steve Rhodes props for his honest assessment of the newly designed Tribune. Like Steve, I also tried to hate it, but just couldn’t (well, except for the “mall map” on top of select pages telling you where you are).
As I’ve said before, it’s a bold step for the Tribune at a time when too many papers are being less than bold. Sure they’ll lose traditional readers … like Mr. Mutter and his friends … but if they can pick up the maturing RedEye readers, then the gamble will surely pay off.
