so whatcha, whatcha, whatcha, whatcha want?
you’ve probably seen the ‘suggest a story’ button over on the right side of the page there. well finally back home from china and the czech republic, i took a look at what had been suggested while i was gone and came across an interesting anonymous suggestion called “MB ATL Needs Shaping Up,” which i am going to post here in it’s entirety:
This isn’t really a story submission more as it is an overall suggestion. Could you guys do more to report on local news? I know Metroblogging isn’t an event listing, but you sure can’t tell that from looking at the past few stories. It’s either authors plugging events they’re involved with or interested in or fluff pieces about nothing specifically Atlanta related. How about the collapse over at Grady Memorial Hospital? Or Decatur getting free Wi-Fi? Don’t let the AJC scoop you guys!
so i am looking for your reaction to that. i think it’s a fair assesment of our coverage of local news (i.e. none of us have posted about chris benoit or the wayne williams dna test results) but it is also fair that to be a news site is not our mission.
so what are you looking for? more news? more music? more culture? more drinks of the week?
drop your thoughts in the comments on this post.
