The “Dynamics of News Reporting and Writing” book is entering its printing stage, which means whatever happens next has to be on this blog. No more “Wait! We have a new example of a disaster we can stick in there!” or “DAMMIT! What do you mean “YikYak” isn’t a thing anymore?” rewrites.
The nice thing about the way this blog is set up is that you can access “chapter topics” I’ve covered over time, so you can assign a chapter and say “Also, go read what this yahoo had to say about Chapter 6 on his blog” or something. There’s also always something new to say, given the rapid rate in which we have news flowing, disasters brewing and people generally falling on their keys in public.
The purpose of this blog was to help instructors who used the book (and those who don’t but enjoy the vibe of this approach) to tackle topics that matter to them and their students. For the most part, I’ve been guessing (hopefully well) but if this book is to become more than a colorful doorstop, I need to make this worth your time.
With that in mind, here’s my ask today: Help me help you. Either email me, hit me up on Twitter or just post something below here to tell me what you want me to cover, examine or discuss on this blog. Tell me what you want to see more of or less of as we go forward.
