As I mentioned yesterday, today I’m speaking at the Boulder Press Club monthly luncheon. My topic is: What Writers Really Need to Know About Blogs.
Here are a few links I expect to be mentioning in that talk…
Great places to find blogs:
- IceRocket: Amy’s favorite
- Technorati (including the blog finder there, which is spotty but improving)
- Google Blog search: Pretty new, not that great yet
- Yahoo News: See the “Blogs beta” right-hand sidebar on the results page for any Yahoo News search.
Blogs to start with:
- Contentious: Amy’s blog. Hey, you’re reading it right now!
- I, Reporter: My other weblog (with Adam Glenn), on citizen journalism
- MicroPersuasion: Steve Rubel’s excellent weblog on PR and citizen journalism
- First Draft, one of my favorite journalism blogs by Tim Porter
- Time Goes By, an excellent example of personal blogging by Ronni Bennett.
- What are feeds and why should you care?
- What’s a blog? Bag the stereotypes
- Blogging style: The basic posting formats
- Handling Porcupines, Trolls, and Other Online Vermin
More links to come… Gotta run now!
