The Seattle PI’s last day as a printed newspaper is today, leaving Seattle a one-newspaper town. The PI will be moving totally online and will try to succeed with a limited staff of writers and advertising salespeople.
Not only were some seasoned writers asked to stay on board, but the citizen bloggers were also asked to continue writing, and though I’m sad to see the Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s printed version go, I’m happy to see it continue on in the virtual world.
I’ve moderated the Seattle Real Estate Professionals column for several years now, and am glad to stay on to write and moderate that blog. Some voices are louder than others there, but it’s always interesting.
