Blog Like a Journalist

A session at WordCamp Montreal 2013

Sunday 30th June, 2013

2:00pm to 3:00pm (EST)

We live in an era where so many different stories and experiences are made available through the Internet. This bodes well for journalism. And traditional media is noticing.

More news editors require their journalists to blog, and traditional news agencies look to blogs for news and trends. And in this landscape, it’s inevitable that the line between blogger and journalist is becoming increasingly blurred.

In this presentation, I will survey the media landscape where blogging and journalism meet. I will show where a journalistic approach and a blog approach may differ. And I will explain how a writer can maintain a high commitment to journalism, while also employing storytelling styles which are more compatible with blogs and their audiences.

Prerequisites: This presentation requires no technical knowledge of WordPress, but attendees can benefit from a casual understanding of different online and offline media forms.
