All right, that’s it, I’m packing it up. No need for me to be yammering away about online journalism stuff when people like Shawn Smith have everything covered over at New Media Bytes. Smith is a senior news producer at MLive.com, the online arm of Booth Newspapers in Michigan.
Honestly, his blog is the most comprehensive site I’ve seen covering topics such as, but are not limited to, Twitter and journalists, new media metrics and how to coerce your newsroom into accepting the online world. Some notable posts:
- Ultimate guide to Twitter tools for Journalists
- Best newspaper blogs for comments, community and readability
- Blogging basics for journalists
- 6 minimal-effort ways to jumpstart your newspaper staff’s excitement about the web
I’m kidding of course about packing it up, but good grief, Shawn has done a terrific job. Kudos to you sir!
