In the hyperactive era of RSS feeds, smartphones, and yes, blogs, it’s kind of heartwarming to see that there’s still a market for the good ol’ fashioned Sunday newspaper, if only thanks to Groupon.
So far, more than 2,500 people and counting have paid $10 for a 20-week subscription to the Sunday Washington Post on Groupon.
That’s pretty impressive, given that the Post’s Sunday circulation fell by 8.2 percent in the most recent six-month reporting period.
Groupon, by the way, does a creative job of selling the paper when you can get the same articles on the web for free.
Although more and more people are turning online for info, spending a quiet afternoon with a hard copy of the Sunday paper trumps staring at a computer screen. Make a foray into the informed with a newspaper, which unlike a computer monitor, can later be used to line your table for a crab feast.
