So the newspapers may be starting blogs, but now also the blogs are starting newspapers. Check out the “print edition” of the Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, an automatically-generated PDF of the week’s top stories from a Seattle neighborhood blog, laid out like a newspaper. It’s a little wonky and won’t win any design awards, but it’s definitely a fresh idea. I’ve long said that the newspaper business was upside down anyway. Instead of having the website be an electronic version of the newspaper, the paper should be a print version of the website. Once again it takes enterprising bloggers to make the risky moves.
