Mashable’s How To on launching your own Indie Journo site
There’s a tidy post over at Mashable today with advice on how to launch your own indie journalism site.
It doesn’t offer anything we didn’t know before, but sums it all up quite nicely:
- it’s pretty much free to set up a site like this
- think about how to get advertisers or sponsors (without losing editorial control)
- wordpress is best
- use Twitter and Facebook to build up an audience
There’s clearly an appetite for this and with so many lay offs this year, it’s not surprising. Will 2010 be the journo-start up year?
