As we continue to roll on towards the Blogger Contest finale, we make our way to the final few media member profiles. The next is from Mack Perkins, who was able to talk to Larry Vaught of the Danville Advocate. Here is Mack’s profile of the man who loves a good Super 8 Motel. You can view the first page below and the rest by hitting “more”. My review follows:
MATT’s TAKE: A solid effort by Mack. Larry is a good guy and I think you captured that well in the piece. I liked your intro and conclusion but would have liked to see more from the interview. If you are going to do a Q and A format, make it longer, as people will want to hear all the questions you asked. I do think you got a good response from Larry about the way that the newspaper industry needs to adapt and that was a very thoughtful answer from Vaught. You asked good questions, but I wish I could have just seen more of them, especially if you were going to format the article in a way that would give his entire response. Overall good job…not one of the top 2 or 3 of the round, but solid nonetheless.
