Paul Gordon, the business editor at the Peoria Journal Star in Illinois, writes how he and business reporter Steve Tarter will begin to blog for the newspaper.
Gordon writes, “Items that appear in the blog may be newsworthy but don’t quite rise to a full story. Or they may be quick updates on stories we’ve already written.
“We will continue to steer clear of rumors.
“The blog will afford us the opportunity to explore national issues that don’t always make it into the newspaper. It will enable us to mention upcoming events or meetings in which you may have an interest.
“‘Minding Business’ also will enable us to tell you more about some of the people we write about. Perhaps, for instance, they have an interesting hobby that doesn’t fit into a story in which they were quoted.
“We will do our best to make it interesting and worth your time. It may not have new items every day, but we are committed to updating it frequently — sometimes more than one item each day.”
