Mindy McAdams stressed that all journalism students should know how to blog — and should have an active blog — by the time they graduate. That’s because most who are going to be hired for a newspaper job are expected to know how to blog.
Here are some tips about writing for blogs:
- Short posts are good.
- Short paragraphs are good (easy to read)
- Do not be “too” complete.
- Do not write like you “know it all.”
- Include readers — do not exclude them.
- Find an appropriate tone.
