|Would you say the journalism blog is revolutionizing the profession?
What is a journalism blog. A blog is a form of writing available to anyone, anywhere. Who can say if it's real journalism or not. I would go with "not" because even journalists blog about the mundane and personal stories that would not be considered journalism or even editorial perspectives. But, that's just my opinion.
not really revolutionizing, it's watering it down. aren't most blogs ready for 3rd grader?
Without a doubt! This allows news to come from anyone who likes to make a note of what is happening. Like propeller.com
Yes, more content is always a good thing.
'Revolutionizing' is a strong word, but blogs do provide a useful forum for discussing journalism and the huge changes it is going through.
One blog that I read regularly is One Man and his Blog (http://www.onemanandhisblog.com/) written by my colleague Adam Tinworth.
Blogs are certainly changing journalism, so I guess it could be called a revolution, although I don't like that word as it implys a revolt. I don't see the emergence of blogs as a revolt, more like an extension of commentary we find in the newspapers and magazines.
It's a door for the best and the brightest to step through.
Yes. And it's a quiet good road for journalism. freedom of expression, freedom of opinion, and can bring news faster to readers via Twitter or Facebook or other social networking sites.
Yes. It's gonna be a lot tougher for me to find a job when I graduate if things continue the way they are. Of course people say if you're right for the job they'll hire you but it depends on your background education, skills and what you've learned on the way. I think people have shut out human relations to a point where they don't feel comfortable talking to another person if there's no screen in between, so they blog what they're doing and their emotions just to feel connected with another person who feels exactly the same. When it comes to journalism blogging, it only makes us studying the profession have to excel and only the best will be on top in the end.
Revolutionizing? No. Alowing those of us with a voice and something interesting to say to reach an audience? Yes.
Absolutely! Individuals' journalism blogs can give valuable insight into how a particular journalist thinks about his/her profession and allow for a much greater to-and-fro of information and opinion via the likes of comments on posts. Blogs about the profession itself vary in quality but are usually, if monitored widely, useful for building a sense of community for practitioners.
Well, it's probably humanizing it, to some degree. I have no issue with a journalist removing some of the robotics surrounding what they do and showing their true selves - in fact, I think that social networking sites allowing the fourth wall to be lowered for all public figures is a great development.
I don't currently keep a blog - I haven't found a home for one yet. I'm open on the sites that I do maintain a profile on, but I'm hesitant to believe that anyone needs my commentary on the entire universe.
In a word, yes. Its given people of all over the world, every walk of life a voice that they never had before. Telling others that want to read it about their life or something that is happening can be of interest of someone somewhere. You can't fell all the gaps by a one cut one station type of news broadcast, lives are too complex to try to fit it in to a 30 min show. When that happens your only getting one side, one perspective of it. When you have a broader view of the subject you can see the bigger picture, not the one that just the TV presents.
