UPDATE: Regular readers, to whom I am deeply grateful to, have commented and said some things that have caused me to rethink things. Due to a setting change, comments closed after one day; if there are other commenters out there, the comments are open again.
Clearly I have a lot to think about and consider. Thank you to all readers and commenters.
Here is a question for anyone who happens to read this blog. This post will only appear here, and comments can and should be made here, or emailed to me. If you don’t have, or can’t find my email, leave a comment saying that you need it and I will reach out to you.
Question for readers of this blog:
Do you dislike it saying “please continue reading at the Times Union?”
If so, do you generally not continue to the TU?
Do you not comment, because you do not like the TU?
I do not have a contract at the paper, nor am I paid to blog (hahahaha – sorry) for them or anyone. I suspect that I would seriously dislike paid blogging, even though I need money! In all seriousness, I have heard from some of you (feel free to reiterate if you are among them) that the paper seems like a more commercial venue, less private, and other things.
I would really like to know. Thanks for reaching out, privately or in the comments. Thank you for reading.
