In an interview this summer, Mr. Romenesko, 58, described how he was looking forward to leaving aggregation behind to get back to reporting, the reason he became a journalist in the first place. His new site, JimRomenesko.com, will still cover media but will also touch on other topics he is interested in, like food, finance and real estate. “I’m not going to be doing three-sentence summaries of other people’s work. That’s behind me,” he said in the summer.
UPDATE: Choire's post is the must-read. Romenesko's blog started in *1999*, man. And the old format worked great. Sometimes, it's best not to mess with what works.
