Long story short, I ended up having to move across town in November and in the process completely lost the will to feed this beast, hence the dreaded RSS Jack-o-Lantern which never seems to go away.
Other things I’ve been busy with the past three months, other than not blogging: not photoblogging, tweeting more often, and reading dozens upon dozens of students’ blog posts (see the left column for lots more).
This spring/winter/whatever I’m excited about the opportunity to co-teach with Staci Baird, aka @profbaird aka @girljournalist. We’re teaming up for this class as well as Digital News Gathering. Students, I hope you’re ready to work hard and have fun, because if you’re not, then you are doing it wrong.
Please have a look at the new-and-improved course syllabus (subject to change) and guidelines for student blogs. Also, for your enjoyment, I’ve updated our curated collection of great multimedia stories. If you have a suggestion for something we should include, let us know in the comments.
For those of you who are new to blogging, watch & learn:
