Here are the blogs that I am currently following.
Boston Blog Pictures: I’ve decided to follow this blog because I think their use of story telling through pictures is excellent and I hope to implement visuals of my own to enhance my blog posts.
CNN iReport: This is an excellent blog for me to follow because it’s user-generated media. This blog site follows stories that are important/covered by the mass public.
Cyber Journalist: This blog site covers different aspects of journalism, news and social media. For example there is a post about how Facebook is trying to implement a newspaper program for its mobile users.
Djenne Djenno: This is a blog site in which the author, Sophie Sarin, talks about her experiences opening a hotel in Mali. I thought this would be a great blog to follow because the author does a fantastic job of using her words to create vivid story telling, something I hope to use effectively in the future.
James Fallows – The Atlantic: I believe this will be a great blog to follow because of the content matter. James Fallows talks about a number of different issues; one of is unbalanced media coverage of American politics.
Jeff Bullas: I started following Jeff Bullas’ blog because he talks about how social media sites are being used by people or companies to advertise and promote. I want to look at social media through a variety of aspects.
John Teti – The Gameological Society: I followed this blog because I like the idea of taking something your genuinely interested in, in this case that’s video games, and making an in-depth blog site about it. I want to take the same approach for my blog, by turning something I’m passionate about into a comprehensive blog.
Online Journalism Blog: I thought this blog would be informative for me since it pertains to happenings in the world of journalism, in particular, online journalism.
Press Think: This is another blog site that pertains strictly to journalism and any events that occur which directly affect it.
The Washington Post/Erik Wemple: I thought Erik Wemple’s blog would be great to follow because not only does he report on certain issues but he also gives his opinions on the matter. A reporter giving his or her opinion on a subject is not something you will find often, and for that reason I will Wemple’s blog.
