Welcome to the First Post of the Rest of Your Lives

Posted By on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 8:42 AM

Welcome to Off Message, a brand-new blog from your pals at Seven Days.

To coincide with the start of the general election season — and to satisfy the politics junkies among you — we are launching this up-to-the-moment source for politics and news.

And it's all paywall-free!

As its name implies, Off Message will go beyond press releases, talking points and campaign spin to cover the stories that matter in Vermont government and politics. We'll bring you the latest from the campaign trail and the Statehouse, plus a grab-bag of stories from around Vermont. And we'll doll it up with videos, photos and other multimedia whenever possible.

Why create a new blog? Seven Days is launching a redesigned website and new content- management system later this year and is creating new blogs (one for politics and news, another for food) as part of the transition. The Seven Days staff blog, Blurt, will not be seeking reelection in 2012, and is stepping down to spend more time with its family.

Off Message will serve as the hub for the latest and greatest news (mostly short items), while longer news features will continue to be published throughout the week on the main Seven Days website.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
