Blogging for journalists: a whole week of help!

Posted in 6x6 series, Journalism by Adam Westbrook on August 6, 2010


For several years now, journalists have been told about the importance of blogging; many have been told they ‘must have a blog’.

But just because it’s a bit like writing an article, doesn’t necessarily make it a walk in the park for journalists. Many millions of people start a blog around the world only to loose faith and give up.

So what makes a good blog? How do you build an active audience of thousands or more? How do you make sure what you write hits the right buttons?

All next week I’ll be blogging about blogging, with a new article up every day.

Set your RSS readers to stun: adamwestbrook.wordpress.com from Monday…

Have a good weekend!

    Interesting. Let’s hope you come up with some practical ideas of how to keep a blog going, even when bereft of ideas. I know this is something I find tough.

    @WillPeach yep there’ll be lots of that + advice on how to turn ideas into a blog. If you’ve got any ideas of other stuff you’d like in there, drop me an email🙂

    @ChrisG stop using my blog to crudely advertise your own stuff!
