Staying quiet and small, but in for the long haul

Carol Altmann – The Terrier

I miss writing posts for you and I miss hearing your thoughts and comments about those posts.

But for now, this is how it has to be.

To be here for the long haul, I need to stay small for now, and I wish I could tell you why, but perhaps you can join the dots.

For those of you who watch what is happening to journalists and the media around Australia, you may see a pattern emerging that is reflected, on a much smaller scale, in The Terrier.

Independent, investigative, analytical and punchy journalism is at a crossroads, especially in the regions.

It is getting so much harder to write stories based on the gathering of discomforting facts.

Lists are so much easier to write: the top ten burger joints, or the top ten bars.

I don’t want to write lists: to me, that is not the heart and purpose of journalism.

So for now I am staying small, curling into a ball, taking the whacks and hoping to continue to tell the stories that need to be told.

Thankyou for staying the course.
