We are Houston77.com. Thank you for tuning in.
Henry here. Been working all day and today I concluded we're just not going to wait any longer. Bugs or no bugs, our look changes Monday. Do good deeds.
For more on us and our immediate future, scroll down to the bottom of this page. My list (subject to many changes) of our new Texas on-line newspapers starting, a few at a time, over the next two months, is posted. Click here to go there. Or copy www.houston77.com/mcpapers.html and put it into your browser's URL window. To contact me with your thoughts and questions or to get involved with this project, send a note to Henry@Houston77.com.
Who are we?
Houston77.com is an aggregator service that connects those of us who want the news with those of them who report the news. Looking for a story? Perhaps we have links to several sources reporting on that story.
Our Great Expansion is now underway with (coming) a different structure and search windows, and then more with our own original reporting and columnists.
Once we are done with our Great Expansion (we will never be done!), our new structure will be that of actual newspapers with traditional newspaper looks. That is because we will be actual on-line newspapers. McClurg Newspaper Company published speciality-interest and neighborhood print newspapers from 1974 to 2000 in Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and New Orleans. Our new local on-line newspapers will have their own front pages and sections. And there will be thousands of them. Yes. Really! There will be separate newspapers for around 4000 Texas places.
After all, we are Texas and we are big. Among the first up, for example, as we launch these in groups of 100, will be The Houston Daily World, The Pinehurst Daily Pine Cone in Montgomery County, and The Pinehurst Daily Pine Tree in Orange County. (There are two Pinehursts in Texas, did you know that?) Also up right away will be The Museum District Daily Treasure, The Montrose Daily Paperboy and The Heights Daily Hummingbird
The new entry portal that is less geographic than Houston77 will be called NewsHenry.com but individual newspapers will also have their own URL's for easier access. You are going to be impressed. So, let us talk about this business venture and this website and maybe your involvement as a columnist, charter advertiser or in some financial way. I am Henry McClurg. Send me a note. I will communicate back with you and start the conversation. Henry@Houston77.com
