Blogging on Obits

These are tough times for traditional journalism even as the digital horizons for a new kind of journalism expand. As writers, we always want our work to be read, whether in print, online, via mobile applications, no matter if people find us by links or searches or Technorati Profile.

We've recently ramped up the number of times we post on this blog and we're curious what you think: Are the blog posts of the past month and half interesting or relevant to you? Would you prefer links to our daily news obituaries? Do you want links to obits from other places? Do you want the "story behind the obit" or the weird, irreverent things that happen here? What would you like to see in this blog?

I really like the story behind the obit and the interesting tidbits that get left off. I'm not a fan of the "This Day's Deaths."

I'm with MDMEM on this. I like the story behind the story, or the interesting people in your area who might not hit a national newswire.

I enjoy the off-beat stuff and the links to obits from around the world. Above all, the warm and humanitarian humor that comes out in this blog keeps me coming back for more.
