January 24

The main activities this week will be the visit and interview with Meg Liebsch, and the presentation by Group 1 (Peter and Ewelina) on the readings from Reuters, Pew and Nieman reports. For both of those you (including Group 1) will need to finish a blog post by next week that:

  • is at least 500 words
  • includes at least one Tag and one Category for each
  • has a compelling title or headline, catchy lede, and conclusion (see the three blogging links from last week from Websitebuilder, SmartBlogger and copyblogger; you should return to these throughout the semester) a photo or graphic as you see fit (anyone get a photo of Meg?), and at least three links

Here’s my graphic on journalistic story forms that relates to the blogging tips:

So here’s the list:

  1. Confirm groups.
  2. Continue exploring your blog setup. Try different themes (see whether there are sidebars, menus, footers), and adding pages and widgets. See if you can add an Admin or Meta widget that allows you to log in directly without going back to WordPress.com. Go back to this intro on the Customizer for your site. Also take a look when you Add Post at the Visual and Text tabs, see where to add a link (that opens in a new window), image, categories and tags. Remember this set of videos.
  3. Send me your blog’s URL so I can post them in the sidebar.
  4. Visit from Meg Liebsch. See assignment details above; then start your post, editing or deleting the canned First Post on your blog.
  5. Break.
  6. Presentation by G1 on the state of digital news and journalism; also start your post on that tonight.
  7. Read the articles on Facebook and the news for next week. We will discuss them as a class, and you will do your next post by Feb. 7 on them:
