Many people are unaware of what a newspaper actually is. Most people have heard of the humble newspaper but have no idea what the difference between a paper and a newspaper is. Well in this article we will attempt to shed some light on the subject.
We live in an age where newspapers and magazines literally get delivered to our homes and the main staple of society is usually a newspaper. It is amazing to me that people still think the only place to get news is in a newspaper or magazine. That is why in this article we will try to discuss the humble paper.
The paper has been around for hundreds of years and was probably started during the dark ages of history. Back then it was not as popular as it is today and people had to rely on word of mouth and this method was not very effective. In order to get news to the masses, people had to take the time and effort to go from town to town and subscribe to the various papers. This created the first news papper.
A paper is a person who will go out each day and dig up all the newspapers and magazines that get delivered to your home. They usually do their digging in the late evening so that they can get home in time to open the newspaper and start reading. Then they either load everything into a wagon or a trailer to get the news home with them or they scoop the news up themselves and deliver it to their home. The paper is now delivered to their home and there it is opened at the appropriate hour to be read at that particular moment. People enjoy the process of reading the paper, flipping through the pages and enjoying all the excitement of getting the news.
The paper does not stop at just one delivery either. Once a week the paper is delivered and another new one comes out the next week. The paper is there to make sure that the paper gets to all the homes. They can also deliver announcements that have something to do with the upcoming events in the area. For instance if there is a festival that is coming up they may be there to tell people that they are going to be there and what is going on.
A news papper may work for a particular newspaper or magazine or they may belong to an organization. Regardless, of who does their job the end result is that the news reaches everyone that is interested. Everyone can get involved in some way or another and help get the news to other people. That is the goal of a news paper.
