I found this a little late. Those canny people over at the Big Blog Company are running some seminars about blogging for journalists.
It seemed a good idea to us to gather a few journalists who may want to learn about blogs and show them how they work and why perhaps they should care. As things move fast in the blogosphere, we would like to do a few practical hour-long blogging sessions before Christmas, starting Friday 17th, then Monday 20th December and Tuesday 21st December.
The lack of awareness of blogging in my profession continues to amaze me. Of the 30 or so journalists employed by EG, I’m the only one with a blog that I’m aware of, and only a handful of my colleagues seem to be even aware of their existence. This is from a magazine that was one of the first to have a comprehensive, profitable online service.
At the very least, understanding a new publishing outlet would seem like a good idea for all journalists. That’s certainly one of the reasons I started blogging.
