NY Times Shutters Another Blog

The Great New York Times Blog Shutdown of 2014 continues. The Times has announced that it’s shuttering India Ink, its first country-specific blog. On the blog’s homepage, a message informed readers that the end had arrived.

“We will continue to produce web-only India Ink sketches, analyses, narratives and news stories, but they will appear on the World page, along with the rest of the newspaper’s coverage,” read the note. India Ink launched in 2011 and featured content produced by 21 Times staffers based in India.

Last week it was revealed that the Times planned to shutter many of its blogs. The first to go was The Lede.
