Me me media

It's not everyday that you wake up to yourself on the cover of the newspaper. (click pic to enlarge) This morning's cover story in the Courier Post -- which serves South Jersey -- was about yours truly, Jay Lassiter, blogger. You can read the story by writer Kevin Riordan here.

A snippet:
Lassiter taps the keys in a sleekly tasteful home office, where a vintage Grundig console stereo sits against one wall and a row of windows offers a view of the woods. His desktop is clear, except for an ashtray. "I call this the South Jersey Desk of the Progressive Blogosphere," he says.

You gotta love a reporter who says nice things about your blog and your house.

Now all the flattery to my ego not withstanding, this story does say a lot about the emerging blog phenomenon. One thing is clear: the blogoshere is growing all the time. Citizen journalism is alive and kicking.
