I like to think of myself as one of those guys with ink in his veins.

At 13, I concluded that the New Brunswick Home News, my hometown paper in New Jersey, was inadequate, so I used my own money to subscribe to the Newark Star-Ledger.

At 14, I sold my first freelance story to a hobbyist newspaper in Indiana, the Tri-State Trader.

At 22, just out of college, I began stringing newspaper stories to the St. Petersburg Times; at 26, I had a short-lived stint as pop music critic for the Tampa Tribune. And at 27, I was the editor of the alternative paper, Tampa Bay Weekly, for a year.

Today, I’m married to a newspaper editor.

All that said, I’ve been predicting the death of the print edition of newspapers for 10 years. But not the death of newspapers themselves; I firmly believe that the content will outlast all of us, it’s just in search of a new delivery system.

Which brings me to today’s guest, Paul Gillin, the man behind the popular blog, NewspaperDeathWatch.com. He is also the author of the books, The New Influencers and Secrets of Social Media Marketing.
