I thought I didn’t read blogs that much but when I only have to choose three journalistic weblogs, I came up with around 10. But the assignment only asked for 3, so here are my chosen ones:
This blog contains not only resources for journalists to better their craft but also serious views on what’s happening in and around the news world. Aside from personal views, which are journalistically curated, it also presents interviews with interesting people in the industry. Interviews with people gives an industry a face and I always find that quite interesting. ICFJ also serves almost the same content but it delves more on investigative reporting.
Journalism.co.uk’s ‘Tool of the week’ for journalists keeps me on my toes when it comes to new software and programs that I can use for my work. It has introduced me to countless apps that has increased my productivity and taught me how to use a software that i would never have thought to be appropriate and not to mention, convenient. I look forward every week for the new ‘Tool of the week’.
A journalist’s life is a very hectic and stressful one. This blog (along with Overheard in the Newsroom) cracks me up every now and then and reminds me not to take myself too seriously.
Other blogs worth mentioning:
Editor Mark – good for checking your grammar every now and then and he’s helpful on Twitter too!
Online Journalism Blog – we all need help in these digital times and this blog (there’s also a book from the same blog owner/author), does just that. #
