seatimes-paywallGuide to Free Seattle News Resources

With The Seattle Times rolling out its paywall in mid-March, I thought it would be a good time to put together some resources for Seattle news readers looking for alternatives. I’ve created two things that I hope are useful to you:

1) A comprehensive guide to free Seattle news resources. Use the menu on the left to browse. You can also link directly to options by adding the menu to the URL: e.g. http://guide.freeseattlenews.com/classifieds. This is also a perfect time to learn about using Twitter to read the news. I welcome your suggestions – email them or post them in the comments below.

2) An experimental automated news site using the selected feeds. Visit http://freeseattlenews.com to see it in action. You can also embed it on your own site as I have done below or with a smaller headline widget. Just click the share button from its home page.



Kudos to Seattle’s Newsdex, a ranked guide to local media on Facebook, Twitter and the Web – which we used to help put together this resource.

Please share your suggestions in the comments below or email them.
