ClickInks, which sells ink, has created an infographic that documents the rise and fall of the newspaper industry. Its SEO specialist writes, “We wanted to provide a fun and useful resource that summarizes the large decline in the circulation of newspapers over time.” We’re not sure if “fun” is the word we’d choose for this topic, but there is some useful historical information in the image. The data appears to refer to the U.S. industry, although that isn’t explicitly stated.

    Though the activity of reporting on the news has not changed much since the British developed letter-writing into a form of art and commerce, it predated the actual use of any reprographic medium. News was first reported on velum using a water-based ink and a quill plucked from a duck’s ass.

    With the use of the internet, the best way to remain informed has come full circle.

    There is no more “dispassionate outsider’s viewpoint.” (Forget about the local papers’crime beat being the training ground for the budding author, keeping him alive while he hones his craft. The writer has got to hit the ground running or he’ll forever remain a diletante or a putterer…)

    You cultivate some acquaintances with the leading luminaries within any field or you become known as an interested party such that the interested parties would seek you out as a possible authoritative source and consult you.

    How you stay fed in this business is entirely up to you…
