Almost gone: Newspaper

Dati pag gising ko sa umaga, noong nasa project 7 pa kami. Looking forward na may Phil Star na nakalagay sa sala. Ako ang unang bumabasa, una ko tinitignan, sports and chismax este entertainment section.
Now, well, I don’t need that waiting anymore. I only buy a newspaper, Manila Bulletin at Sunday for job hunting. hehe Pero siyempre di naman ako lagi nag job hunting di ba? hahahaha

Sad to say, with the great benefits that internet brought for the human race eh ito yun tinamaan ng matindi. How harsh or hard? Newsweek, even New York times are now looking for a white knight. Newsweek even stop doing yun hard copy ng mag nila. Geez.. Eh dati mayaman ka pag may Newsweek or Time magazine sa bahay mo. hehe Now, with a click, it’s there. At di lang it’s there.. Naguupdate agad unlike before na hintayin mo yun news ng 6pm or next day na lang.

Even now, di mo kailangan may hawak kang dyaryo, nasa smartphone mo na lang. Or kung mayaman Tablet. hehe Or kung hindi afford, may computer shop, tambay lang, pasurf surf lang ayos na.
Tapos idagdag mo pa kaming bloggers.. Semi Journalist, or Journalist without a degree.. hehe Eh lalo na kawawa yun newspaper industry. Even tabloids, eh natamaan din. May mga tabloids pa din, ang babastos naman. hahaha

Of all things going gone, eto yun masasabi ko wala ako masisisi kung bakit unti unti silang nawawala. Maybe in 10 years time, wala na maglalako ng mga dyaryo sa tin or kahit sa kalsada o bangketa. You can’t blame them that despite yun ibang publications eh may online subscription eh marami naman sila competition online. Free pa! After watching page one, yun doc about new york times, I’m sad na marami sa kanila mga award winning writers, Pulitzer’s lang naman yun iba. hehe In the history palaging front sila lalo na sa mga shocking stories or news, eh biglang babagsak kasi ayaw na ng tao bumili ng papel, gusto online or much in TV. Worse others, the save the trees mantra. Geez..

Then a lot of publications around the world, lalo na pag newspaper ang genre mo nagsasara, mostly old ones. It’s sad, kahit sobrang detailed o minsan may mga info na sila lang nagprovide eh wala na nagbabasa. Tinatalo sila ng magazines, especially ones about love or sex. hehe Or yun TV shows, news channels or yun nga websites giving news for free.. So advers going to those mediums now than newspaper who is more visible and a wider chain of readers.

Well, ngayon yun mga dyaryo nakikita ko lagi sa BK kasi may libre nakabitin dun. hehe Banks which nobody reads it, usually minsan wala ako kaagaw. hehe Even schools I rarely seen a student reading a broadsheet unless newspaper ng university or mags na lang. hehe

See, as much I want to give anymore ways na parang lumago sila.. Unfortunately, wala na ko masuggest. Others has now an app, or may website na din pero limited news lang. If you want to have like yun whole news sa iyong gadget, tama naman yun. Bayaran mo. Quality writing naman yun. Matuto ka pa.

One thing pala, they can still keep their market by doing more ads. Not only yun ads sa sine before manood ng trailer or the film itself. hehe Sana more on TV, Radio or even online di ba. Invest in online adver, it’s worth a try di ba..

Prices should like not sobrang baba pero yun kaya bilin ng user, kung mas mura sa usual newspaper mas maganda kasi wala naman delivery cost or even paper and printing cost di ba? So why go lower than the usual newspaper.

I’m still grateful na nagbabasa pa din ako ng newspaper kung may chance kasi dito ko nakuha yun curiosity ko in other aspects in life. Sa chismax kahit papano may topic na dito mo din makikita. Commentaries from the writers talaga, ok. Kaya siguro din nagbloblog din ako coz maybe I want to be one. hehe But nah, ok na ko dito. hahaha

Job hunting of course na dito mo din makikita than in jobstreet or in job fairs. At higit sa lahat, well not sports. hehe Inside info ah este, great business news from different industries. Kayo naman. hahaha Mga info for business na magagamit mo kung hindi ngayon, a better time.

If I get rich in the future, maybe I should subscribe sa newspaper in the old fashion way. hehe
After you wake up, go downstairs, sit to a lazy boy chair, flipping the pages and reading the news of the day coupled that with a sip of juice. I’m not into coffee. hehe

It’s that simple.
