Beginning today, the Bloomington Pantagraph will charge for accessing some stories on its website. The newspaper says it will offer the first 15 articles per month free of charge, but after that, story clicks will cost $8 per month, or $66 per year. Substantial lower rates are available for subscribers to the paper. ($2/month, $12/year.) The advertising area of the website will remain free of charge. Pantagraph officials say their website receives about 35,000 daily visitors. Newspapers are beginning to charge for online content after offering it free for years because of dwindling revenue from traditional print sources.
