The past few weeks have been very encouraging, as the Margins campaign continues to make its way out into the world. I was recently contacted by the Washington Post and the Hartford Courant about doing pieces on Margins.
Both pieces were supposed to come out this week. Not sure what's up yet with the Post, but many thanks to my friend Craig and his stepmom. She lives in Connecticut and found the article in the Courant (it's not online). She's sending me a copy and I'll post it as soon as I receive it.
I'm a little nervous about the pieces. I'm used to being the interviewER, not the interviewEE...hopefully, I said a few things that were either mildly coherent or entertaining and don't make me sound like a jackass.
I'm also curious to see the impact of print press vs. online press on the campaign. Over the past several months, every time there's been a mention of Margins online somewhere, the petition and site traffic have gotten a bump. I'm wondering if the same will hold true for print. If it's not as simple as clicking on a hyperlink to find out more about the campaign, will people actually make the extra effort to do so?
