We’re starting a blog to keep everyone up to date with what’s happening in the newsroom here at The Gazette.

My name is Jamie Kelly, and I’m the new social media guide at the paper. Fancy title, but a simple job: I’m going to connect with our readers in a whole bunch of different ways with the goal of making sure we’re covering the stories that matter to you and getting them to readers in as many different ways as possible.

My hope is that this blog makes our newsroom operations more transparent. I’ll be posting ideas we have for front-page stories, explaining how we make decisions and answering any questions that come up.

And hopefully, you’ll be reading and leaving comments for us.
