The Claremont Insider, a city-centric blog that debuted way back in 2005, featured almost-daily posts, some of great length, making it perhaps the most active Inland Valley blog.
Thus, the span of time since its most recent post, Aug. 6, is raising eyebrows.
Reader Tom Lamb says:
“Being the great investigative reporter that you are, I am turning to you for information as to what has happened to the Claremont Insider. As you probably know, the last posted blog was dated August 6th. It would certainly diminish the fun if it has gone away.”
And reader Tom Meader asks simply:
“Any ideas as to what is, or, is not, happening?”
Afraid not. I e-mailed Claremont Buzz, the blog’s contact, a couple of weeks back and got no response, which also doesn’t bode well for the blog’s status.
Perhaps ironically, the Aug. 6 post, about the defunct Claremont trolley, is headlined “Out of Sight but not Out of Mind.”
From the Insider’s inaugural post of May 8, 2005:
“We’ll report on the stories behind the stories. We’ll take you behind the scenes and show you the side of Claremont that doesn’t seem to make it into the papers. We’ll bring you the REAL Claremont, warts and all, rather than the sanitized, air-brushed official version.”
