(Toledo, OH) As a writer one of the hidden benefits of having a Web presence is the ability to interact with readers. As a print journalist, interaction is usually limited to letters to the editor or the occasional phone call.
In the blogosphere the interactivity is much more frequent and occurs immediately. If I write something that is off the mark, or if I have forgotten an important angle to a story, one glance at the comments section is all it takes for a dose of necessary humility.
I am desirous, though, to also get feedback about what stories you think should get more coverage that are being ignored by this blog, as well as mainstream media in general.
Feel free to post story ideas in the comments section, or email me if the idea is of a confidential / breaking news variety.
