The Augusta Free Press — formed out of the ashes of the Valley Observer — has announced that they’re switching their format. Rather than produce an issue each day, they’ll instead release articles as they’re written, over the course of the day, as events unfold. The internet-only publication, which covers Shenandoah Valley and state politics in equal measures, is created with Userland’s site management software, which happens to also be blogging software. (The Hook uses the same software to produce their site.) The AFP will be a curious hybrid of a newspaper and a blog, something that I’ve certainly never seen before. Tuesday was their first day of publishing in the new format.
