We're so close to launching the blogging functionality

Thank you all for your patience.

It's been frustrating for us to have launched the BostonNOW without being able to get bloggers into the first editions, but we wanted to make sure we had the blogging functionality right.

We knew we had to get our content online the day we launched, so we focused on finishing the content part of the site and kept working on the blogging side of things.

But now we're ready to test the blogging functions tomorrow in hopes of launching the blogs on Friday. By Sunday then, we hope that a bunch of you will have posted and we can put you in the Monday paper.

In the meantime, we hope people have enjoyed being able to watch and participate in our news meeting (clicking on the NewsroomNOW tab at the top of our home page will take you to the meeting room for the 1 p.m. event every day, Sunday through Thursday).

I look forward to reading your stuff starting, we hope, on Friday.

John

There's a story waiting to be told regarding the stenographic machine output of the public meetings of the Boston City Council. The stenographic machine output and the transcript of the machine output have not been available flouting FOI freedom of information public records principles and sunshine open public meetings principles.
