Should Be Blogging Be Compulsory For Would-Be Journos?

I meant to link to a post on the Online Journalism Blog last week, discussing the issue of journalism graduates having blogs. I’m glad I didn’t now, because the discussion in the comments has really added value to the debate.

I’m still firmly in the camp that, if you want to have a job in journalism now, you should be blogging before you graduate, and should continue afterwards. And I do believe that publishers who recruit people without that sort of commitment are just adding to their existing woes. But there are some really interesting alternative takes on the issue in there.
