Every day you read about the death of print media and how online content is the future of publishing. As an online publication ourselves, we like the (minor) role we’re playing in the changing face of the media. Even so, there is something about print, and we think it’s always exciting for bloggers to find their work recognized in hard copy media.
Though the vultures may be circling the printing press, we were still excited to discover earlier this week that in the current issue of Washingtonian (April 2009, on newsstands now) Penn Quarter Living is listed as one of DC’s “Best Local Blogs” (Vol. 44, No. 7, Pg. 48…not that we bought 10 copies). While the write up is only a couple of sentences, we were flattered to be included. And if the Washingtonian can make such great decisions about worthy blogs, maybe this whole death of the printed word thing is greatly exaggerated.
* For those of you who haven’t seen a print copy (WHAT?), there were ten blogs listed as “Best Local Blogs” but instead of numbers they’re listed as A through J. PQLiving comes in at G. And we know we couldn’t have done it without our loyal readers, thank you!
