We had a story online yesterday and in The Gazette today about a company-wide re-organization.
I won’t go into many details here, as the particulars have been covered by Steve Buttry and Lyle Muller, but I have updated the list of newsroom people using Twitter to reflect the new, lower staffing levels.
The future of this blog is uncertain. My position as social media guide will have less to do with putting out the daily paper and online edition than it has so far and more to do with training reporters and connecting with the community in other ways.
So my question to you all is: Is this blog useful at all? I realize that other than the daily story lineups, the posting on here has been spotty. Do you want to see something like this blog continue, no matter who’s writing it?
As always, you can leave comments or shoot me an e-mail.

It promises to be a big week here again. Today through Wednesday, we’ll be taking your questions for Linn County Supervisor candidates. You can join that chat here.

We’re also going to start experimenting with link journalism. I’ve added a sidebar called ” Interesting Links” to this site, and it’s a look at news from all over the Internet, compiled by a new service called Publish2. The stories are picked by journalists. Soon, we hope to have a round up of the things people in our newsroom think are interesting there, as well. We’re trying to give our readers more information all the time, and we’re hoping that this service works out. Love it? Hate it? Let us know, either in the comments or by e-mail.
