International Snailpapers Day
International Snailpapers Day is observed next on Friday, April 7th, 2023 (62 days from today).
Today, as science and technology develops, the forms of news transmission also become more and more diverse. As we see news from radio, television, twitter, telephony and internet reach us faster than news can through newspapers. Journalists have to go through a lot of steps to get their stories to the readers, they have to phone or cordless in their stories to the newspaper, and then the paper has to edit the story, order, type, print and assemble, then distribute (a step that is, in fact, often many before the newspaper is in the hands of the reader). As newspapers are losing ground, International Snail papers Day is a day that was created by a favorite newspapers person, and celebrates its annual anniversary on April 7 as a reminder, if you can't find time to smell the flowers in the garden, take the time to smell the newspaper print. Why is called Snail papers? Because, information came from newspapers is slower than other objects.
History of International Snail papers Day
Dan Bloom is a newspaper lover, he created International Snail papers Day with the purpose of encouraging people to slow down a bit to smell the newspaper print. Dan says International Snail papers Day is an opportunity for you to inhale some newsprint, before it's gone forever, and to pause for a moment if you don't smell the roses. Other way, this day is your chance to live in old memories. Immerse yourself in the lifestyle of the past decades.
He asked: "What's your plan for the day? The main thing is this: pick up a newspaper printed in whatever country we live in, buy it, read it, and then think about where they are moving towards, the journalistic culture we call LIFE!
How to observe International Snail papers Day
First, there are not easy ways to find out some sort of local news, in some communities, beyond local papers. If you want to get up on Saturday morning, for example, and check the scores of Friday night soccer games from all three of your town's high schools, the local paper is usually the best bet.
And if you want more than box scores of local sporting events - articles describing the game's high scores, photos - again, the town newspaper may be the easiest source.
Second, some people love the tactical experience of closing the page through a newspaper over breakfast and coffee or tea.
Third, some types of news are not necessarily reported in a second fashion. They can be carefully investigated reports that have been fact-checked by two people other than the writers. After journalists create such a story in days, weeks, or even months, putting them in a newspaper or magazine has the same effect as putting them on the Internet.
But, of course, if newspapers and magazines can't afford to continue as in kind, because subscriptions and advertising plummet, then eventually their online forms will be the only ones. Take this holiday to buy a few newspapers and soak in them before they disappear. Share with the hashtag #InternationalSnailpapersDay.
