After GMG got a Facebook page I thought there was something missing. Good Morning Gloucester started as a way for Joey to post photos of his favorite fishing city at dawn but it’s become much more than that. A resource to the community and really the place to go if you want up-to-date information on a wide spectrum of current information about Cape Ann. It’s been written up in area newspapers and magazines, won awards, and broken exclusive stories.
All of those things add up to a place that passes the Wikipedia notability requirement. So yesterday I thought I would take an hour and write a wiki page for GMG. Once I started I quickly realized how much GMG has done in the few short years existence and getting a rough draft took more than that hour. But as a first shot I think I got the highlights of the GMG story. Wikipedia wants "encyclopedic, only information that can be confirmed and referenced, no frivolity allowed". That was difficult trying to get the essence of GMG in dry terse format. Here is my first try. As I go down the list of repeating themes I realize all the stuff I forgot. "Cape Ann Sports Coverage", "Rosa Rugosa!", "WhaZat?". Luckily Wiki is a completely malleable device that can be added to at any time. While I am adding those if you think of something I missed just send me an email or add it yourself.
So what am I talking about? Go to Wikipedia and search on "Good Morning Gloucester" or to get there faster just google "wiki gmg" then select Good Morning Gloucester from the list. Or click here:
You might find it a handy place to visit if you need a quick link to the Block Party dates, or Fiesta, or to local town official web sites.
