So my local newspaper gave me a call today and they want to do an article on my haunt! They interviewed me on the phone, and theyre going to come by on saturday when I have everything out to take pictures...then do an article on wednesday. Sweet eh? im pretty excited, she took my website url and everything so we'll see what happens...

Congrats Beepem! That's great news.

The paper never did get a second article about mine up yet, but they did send a photographer out the other day, so I'm pretty sure I'll be in again before the big day.

Let's hope the added exposure works out well for both of us!

Sorry to hear that Beepem. :(

Hey Beepem, that's a bummer, but don't feel bad. The paper was "maybe" going to send out a photographer for mine, but didn't. They used one of my pics from last year. The other gal mentioned in the story got the photos.

Maybe you can take a photo or two and send it to the paper yourself?

they said they were, and if they didn't that I would be called. no call. well see whats in the paper tomorrow, its supposed to be tomorrow

10-25-2006, 03:36 PM
wow, they didnt even do an article -.-

Awww, that is so wrong, Beepem.
If it makes you feel any better, the local paper ignores me every year, except last year, when someone submitted some pictures. Then they were printed.
About local papers. Ninety percent of what you read was submitted by someone else (press releases). The reporters actually do very little beyond attending selectmen meetings. Almost all the photos and stories are submitted by someone else. If I may suggest, next year take some high resolution photos and email them to the paper. Betcha they'll print them then.
