Enquirer’s “Get Published!” renamed “Share it!”

Yesterday, one of us received the following email from Dianne Gebhardt-French, the Enquirer’s Community Publishing Editor, in which she promoted the recent redesign and expansion of the community web pages, including the addition of blogging. Since curiosity nearly always gets the better of us, we have a few questions: What do our readers think about the Enquirer’s newly designed website, especially the “Share it!” community pages? Will Norwoodians become major contributors/participants? Does the addition of blogging mean the Enquirer has completed their transition to being an interactive electronic news medium...and how much longer do we give the print version?

Ms. Gebhardt-French’s email:
