Via the Shadows of Moonlight I found out about this unique new publication: The Armenian Times.
First time ever we are seeing an Armenian newspaper build fully on a blogging engine. Everything in the newspaper is commetable and as the editorial to the second issue claims – 27,000 people have visited the site after the release of the first issue. This is indeed an impressive figures for an Armenian newspaper.
The publication claims to be geared towards the younger reader. I didn’t quite like the colors of the web-page overall, but I guess I’m not young enough to decide if its appealing to youth or not. The choice of the topics could also be more interesting perhaps, and the way they are treating titles is the usual Armenian horrible way – you’ll never know what you’re going to read judging from titles like: “The Road was called Tanais-Ecbatana!” or “If you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”. But heyl This is a newspaper-blog! And its worth mentioning and showing to other Armenian newspapers. This one is the pioneer – and hopefully others will follow!
