For some time now, Northern Echo journalists have been dipping in and out of blogging, mostly displaying the same sort of enthusiasm for the art that I have for the gym.
All that's changed now, with editor Pete Barron starting up his own blog on the Echo site. Pete's managed an obscene level of 10 posts in 4 days already, which is just showing off, frankly. Where does he find the time?
In all seriousness, Pete is a very welcome addition to blogging in the town - his level of commitment to various causes around the Borough is exemplary, and his hard work has guaranteed that the Echo can truly badge itself as a paper at the heart of the community it serves.
His blog is going to be required reading, so I've added a link on my blogroll.
