Local Journal

Most villages regularly produce newsletters, and the half-baked idea of Local Journal was/is to offer a way for people to submit their content and for editors to publish it online.

I've just been trying to find the village magazine for a neighbouring village and just can't. The links on the village's Wikipedia page are out of date, the website that looks like it was once an official mouthpiece of the parish council hasn't published any minutes online for years. There are links to a Facebook group, but it's private.

I'm quite comfortable with the idea of cycling a couple of miles to the pub and borrowing a copy of the mag, but come on - shouldn't village magazine content be online these days.

I still feel this idea deserves some oven time.

Rather than using a social media, I prefer the idea of writing the occasional pithy yet witty summary of the life and times of yours truly and send it to a select group. Ok so it's a way to test mailing list functions - you got me.
