Unfazed by the closure of the London paper and London Lite, a new freesheet has emerged on the streets of London. Called The Blogpaper, it's a printed version of blog postings culled from the internet, and its first monthly edition hit the streets on a small scale on 20 November. Issue two is due on 18 December.
It's not entirely a new idea. In the US the Chicago-based Printed Blog lasted 16 issues before closing in July, while in Argentina a title called Oblogo has reached issue number 26 with a circulation of around 15,000. But the Blogpaper's USP, according to its founders, is that it will not have an editor.
