I will be shutting dawn the independent online newspaper that I tried to get of the ground called the Unitarian Universalist Young Adult Gazette (UUYAG) in clouding all it’s presences online by Sunday March, 7th. That is in one week from tomorrow. Well that is unless someone wants to take it over or I suddenly get fore or five people to commit to write for it as regular contributors before then. UUYAG was intended to be a new independent online newspaper written for and by Unitarian Universalist young adults. It was going to dish up a mix of intelligent journalism, artful story telling, intriguing opinion and weighty commentary. And I had hoped it all would have whimsical humour spun throughout. Also I had hoped it would deal with such subjects as the political and cultural underpinnings and goings on within the varying North American UU young adult communities. It was going to be published online twice to quarterly each year. But sadly it never got off of the ground do to a lack of willing contributors. So come March, 7th it will be no more.
It is now Sunday March, 7th, so I have removed UUYAG from the internet. That is if someone didn’t download part or all of it and put it’s content back on the internet in some other location. I’m not paranoid it’s just you never now what folks may do in this modern electronic age of easily capturable content. Really I am not paranoid, besides it never really got of the ground so there really was no content for someone to capture in the first place. RIP UUYAG March, 7 2010.
This is the announcement I posted on the Unitarian Universalist (UU) youth and young adult web site, FUUSE and a few other places, including on all the UU young adult Faceboox groups I am a member of. And it’s in regards to the new independent online newspaper written for and by Unitarian Universalist young adults in North America to which I am launching. Hopefully some time this spring if all goes well.
The Unitarian Universalist Young Adult Gazette will be a new independent online newspaper written for and by Unitarian Universalist young adults (UUYA). It will dish up a mix of intelligent journalism, artful story telling, intriguing opinion and weighty commentary. Hopefully all with great sprinklings of ridicules and whimsical humour spun throughout. It will with any luck deal with such subjects as the political and cultural underpinnings and goings one within the varying North American UUYA communities. And it will be published online twice to quarterly each year at http://uuyag.wordpress.com/. But before any of this can happen, editors, writers and journalist need to be sought. So this is where you come in. Have you ever thought, wouldn’t it be nice if I could tell the wider UUYA community about what goes on young adult wise locally ware I am. Or maybe you just want to know more about what the UUA or the CUC’s planes are wen it comes to support for UUYA community and have always wanted to track it dawn but haven’t do to a lake of an appropriate venue to share your findings in.
