Briggs Chapter 2: Advanced Blogging

February 13th, 2012 · No Comments · Briggs, COMM 361, RyckiRobertson

In this chapter Briggs discusses the importance of blogging. As the internet becomes more and more important to the journalism world, it is clear that blogging is one of the most powerful journalism tools that can be used.

Being a blogger allows a journalist to do many things.

– Actively communicate with readers.
– Be your own publisher.
– Create a following.

Blogs are the most direct way to be in control of all aspects of one’s writing and how it is presented.

Creating a blog can be simple and most blogging platforms are very direct and user friendly. The most direct platforms to create a blog on is through WordPress.com (this blog was created through the WordPress platform!) and blogger.com.

Though creating a blog can be simple there are definitely dangers with issues such as copywriting. It’s important to understand that all outside sources must be cited. In some cases, if possible, it may be easier to use freely shared images that the owner has shared.

Since blogging is tool that anyone can use it is important to know how to blog effectively.
