The Printed Blog still weekly

The Printed Blog, a project whereby content from blogs is distributed in print for free, published its first issue last week.

The website shows a weekly schedule but if there’s enough content and if advertisers are willing, the paper want to move up to a daily (even twice a day) schedule in the future: “The papers are distributed to neighborhood pickup points in A.M. and P.M. editions” according to the website.

The Printed Blog is founded by Joshua Karp is distributed in Chicago, although more cities are planned.

The editors showed that they learned the basic rule of print journalism by picking the “sex sells” picture for the cover of the first issue.

    We have not raised one penny of outside funding, and that is the only reason why we’re not daily. We’ve actually got a fairly good revenue stream for selling ads before the first issue was even launched. We’ll have a major investment soon, and the frequency and number of locations will increase quickly. Thanks for the post! Josh (founder and publisher).
