FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 1, 2016
Edmonton – Marking the first complete Blog-to-Paper jump, daveberta.ca is now available exclusively in paper form.
“I am really excited about this new historic initiative,” said daveberta.ca publisher and founder Dave Cournoyer. “I believe there is a real demand for a paper print news publication in Edmonton.”
“I’m thinking about calling it a ‘news-on-paper’ because it will be news printed on paper,” Cournoyer said. “Readers have become accustomed to reading my blog on their computer screens and mobile devices, but I really think the next frontier is paper.”
“From the bottom of my heart I want to thank the thousands of loyal readers who have followed this blog on the internet over the past 11 years,” Cournoyer said. “I know you’re all really going to love the convenience of the new paper format.”
“While blogs like AlbertaPolitics.ca have foolishly chained themselves to the limitations of the internet, I’m not afraid to make the leap into the next frontier,” Cournoyer said. “And that frontier is paper.”
He likened the blog-to-paper transformation to the resurgence in vinyl record sales and barber shops.
“Like classic LPs and old timey barber shops, news-on-paper is very retro,” Cournoyer said. “I really think 2016 is the year news-on-paper will take off and I will be at the forefront of it.”
The news-on-paper will include a regular feature called “Paper Twitter” in which messages from readers will be printed in each edition. “The beauty of Paper Twitter is that your opinions won’t be limited to 140 characters,” Cournoyer said. “It’s genius!”
Cournoyer also thinks there is an excellent opportunity to generate revenue because news-on-paper will only be available to those who pay for it.
News-on-paper editions of daveberta.ca will be available in street corner boxes across the city starting on April 1, 2016.
