Blog Rally to Help the Boston Globe

We have all read recently about the threat of possible closure faced by the Boston Globe. A number of Boston-based bloggers who care about the continued existence of the Globe have banded together in conducting a blog rally. We are simultaneously posting this paragraph to solicit your ideas of steps the Globe could take to improve its financial picture.

We view the Globe as an important community resource, and we think that lots of people in the region agree and might have creative ideas that might help in this situation. So, here's your chance. Please don't write with nasty comments and sarcasm: Use this forum for thoughtful and interesting steps you would recommend to the management that would improve readership, enhance the Globe's community presence, and make money. Who knows, someone here might come up with an idea that will work, or at least help. Thank you.

I think that a foundation or group of wealthy residents should buy the Globe and run it as a non-profit enterprise. They would earn a decent return with out the burden of the Times' massive debt load and the Globe would thrive without the burden of making a profit.

The globe should spend less time trying to get their leads by contacting people through facebook. Its annoying and just sad try doing some real reporting. And if you don't have any leads don't print it instead of trying to create a story.
