Mark Harden, the new media editor at the Denver Business Journal, writes about the weekly business newspaper’s decision to begin blogging.
Harden writes, “The DBJ came to blogging carefully and cautiously. We didn’t want to divert our staff from working on the kind of insightful business news coverage that you’ve come to expect from us, both in print and online. And believe me, our people work plenty hard as it is.
“But then we came to realize that through blogging, we can offer you even more of what I think is the DBJ’s greatest strength: The deep experience and business-sector knowledge of our staff. Many of our reporters and editors have been covering Denver business for years, and have deep Colorado roots. And in the course of reporting each day, they come across a lot of interesting stuff that doesn’t make it into their stories and columns.
“From now on, they’ll be sharing some of those insights in their blogs. They’ll offer solid, useful information shedding light on local business — DBJ style.”
