Life According to Krista

I already did a post on Mark Briggs’ chapter three of Journalism Next, but I am going to do a quick list of things that are important in this chapter.

In a blog, it is so important to:

  • Gain viewers and a large audience.
  • Keep your blog organized and easy to use so people can navigate throughout with no problems.
  • Be credible. Make sure to establish credibility and keep it. A journalist is only as good as his sources; don’t jeopardize your credibility by using anonymous sources or ones you can’t trust.
  • Establish your blog with a “beat” or certain subject you focus on.
  • Use links to cite sources.

By doing these simple things, you are already working towards being a better journalist.
