Editorial

+ - Do syndicated columnists have a future?

Submitted by
DrMrLordX
DrMrLordX writes "With declining circulation numbers looming over the heads of major newspaper publishers, what fate awaits syndicated columnists? I am not syndicated, but I do write for a local independent paper with the ultimate goal of becoming successful (financially and otherwise) as a columnist. Every time I contemplate the possibility of seeking syndication, bleak future newspaper circulation forecasts make me question my own motives. Is it even possible to break into the editorial world with a shrinking reader base? Would it be better to get into socio-political blogging and rely on ad/referral revenues?"

+ - More on WoW addiction (coral cached)

DrMrLorDX writes "EDIT: I redid the submission with Coral Caches. The sites themselves probably can't handle much traffic. It looks like another columnist has taken aim at WoW addiction. Hickman's article has drawn quite a bit of criticism since word of its existance spread throughout a number of WoW guilds. It just so happens that the article originally appeared in The Pulse which is a weekly paper in competition with The Enigma, a paper for which I write on a weekly basis. I have offered a different viewpoint on MMORPG addiction which I felt obligated to do, considering how long ago I started playing the darn things (UO pre-alpha . . . the one that came before the E3 pre-alpha)."
