NewsTrain: Blogging for Journalists

Lil Swanson was nice enough to ask me in for a session on blogging for journalists at the NewsTrain workshops in San Jose. Here are the slides. Here are some comments from reporters who blog, including this from Michael Bazeley, who writes Silicon Beat for San Jose Mercury News:

"I think blogging has also sharpened my reporting some. Because Matt and I put original content that comes from original reporting on the blog, we are spending more time mining our beats, talking to sources and reading about issues. We're consuming more information, which can only be good."
