Multimedia Journalism – Session 1 – Some blogs to look at in class

Here's a few blogs to look at: 

Some of these are blogs I read. Some are blogs I read about quite a lot. A few are now defunct. Some of them have grown way beyond what we think of as blogs.

Pick a few and read them for a while – scroll back through a few days of posts and try to work out who the blog you're reading is aimed at. Think about how it differs from conventional media, from newspapers and magazines in particular. How does the writing differ? Does it relate to its audience in a different way?

Ask yourelf – what sort of blog is this? A sensibility blog? A media filter? A commercial niche blog? Media critique? See if you can categorise it in some way. 

Then why not try writing a short analysis of the blog on your blog – say what kind of blog it is, what type of posts it runs, how often it updates and what you think of it… Link to the blog and to specific posts as part of your analysis.
