When the weather is cold and windy outside, it’s a good time to stay indoors and do some reading, like the readings on blogging for Monday’s class:
- Briggs, pp. 12-18 (on RSS feeds) and Chapter 2 (Blogging for Better Journalism)
- Solis and Breakenridge, Chapters 7 (Blogger Relations) and 10 (Corporate Blogging)
- Jay Rosen, “The twisted psychology of bloggers vs. journalists,” PressThink, March 12, 2011, http://pressthink.org/2011/03/the-psychology-of-bloggers-vs-journalists-my-talk-at-south-by-southwest/
- Lee Odden, “How NOT to pitch a blog,” TopRank Online Marketing Blog, http://www.toprankblog.com/2007/08/how-not-to-pitch-a-blog/
We’ll talk about the scavenger hunt in class on Monday. But we’ll also talk about blogs and what works and what doesn’t when it comes to blogging.
