Brooklyn Ghostbusters: From Local Blog to National News

An example of how a short post on a neighborhood blog becomes a national news story.

Feb 29, 2008 – 9:34 a.m. Pardon Me for Asking Blog
Feb 29, 2008 – 10:08 a.m. Brooklyn Optimist Blog
Feb 29, 2008 – 12:11 p.m. City Room Blog, NYTimes.com
March 2, 2008 – 7:30 p.m. McBrooklyn Blog
March 3, 2008 – (time unknown) Curbed Blog
March 4, 2008 – 4:00 a.m. NY Daily News

On March 4, 2008, the Associated Press wrote a wire story on the Brooklyn Ghostbusters. It ran in newspapers and Web sites across the globe.

And five hours after I posted this on The South Jersey Line last fall, Morgan Pehme wrote this comment on the message board.

    The Ghostbuster story is still one of my favorites. Though I continue to cover the many issues, history and little quirks of my neighborhood, that particular post took the web by storm!!
