Hello! I’m Jeff Hartley and welcome to my blog, digitalfirstnewspapers.com. Like many of you, I grew up in this business on the print side and now I’m making the transition to focusing on maximizing our opportunities across all platforms (in print, digital, social media and mobile). It’s a fascinating time to be in the newspaper business and keeping up with how they are transitioning is critical. Putting together this weekly digital update helps me stay up to date on everything that is developing at newspapers across the country and I hope it will help you too. If you would like to get weekly updates delivered to your email inbox, please sign up on the main page. Thank you.
