This is neat. Just got an email from Ernesto Burden at the RH/TA about this new project, which is posted on the Rutland Herald and Times Argus websites. Each paper is creating a readers' blog that will include commentary from readers and from that paper's editors. They're looking for contributors "from a variety of social and political perspectives."
They're appealing to readers in ads on their websites:
Bloggersmust be good writers, and must be committed to civil discourse, evenwhen writing on controversial issues. This is not a paying gig and sobloggers must also be willing to post for the glory and thesatisfaction.
