Joey: Media Mogul!

Joey’s featured in the latest issue of North Shore Art*Throb

Media Mogul

By Lou Mandarini

Joey Ciaramitaro didn’t necessarily set out to revolutionize the media landscape on Cape Ann, but that’s the way things have turned out since he started his blog Good Morning Gloucester, nearly five years ago.

Subtitled My View Of Life on the Dock, the website is first and foremost a community blog, but describing Good Morning Gloucester so simply is kind of like describing Jackson Pollock as just a painter. Such a perdestrian description doesn’t do justice to the kind of sensory overload at work. To read the article in its entirety, click here, and go to page 26.

Congratulations Chief!

“At its essence, Good Morning Gloucester is a Technicolor love letter to the city where Ciaramitaro grew up.”

North Shore Art*Throb, based out of Salem, is a free publication that incubates a regional movement of sustainable communities invested in the arts, a local economy, and cultural engagement. NS Art*Throb covers Boston’s North Shore including Gloucester, Salem, Beverly, Lynn, and Marblehead.

    Great writing, Lou. Congrats, Joey. Well-deserved!

  10. Great article. They did a lot of research and deep background. I think they even read the Good Morning Gloucester Wikipedia page. GMG gets twice as many daily hits as GDT? Wow. Time for the GMG press pass to get the front row! ;-)

    This article will get linked to the GMG wiki page soon.
