Multimedia Journalism – Setting up your blog

Today we’re going to concentrate on getting you started blogging. First we’ll set up a blog using WordPress then we’ll look a bit at blogs in general and why they’re still interesting. Then we’ll look at writing online and how it differs from writing in print – in particular we’ll look at how to link. Then we’ll get you writing a short news update post, with links to your sources.

About Jim

I'm the Principal Lecturer in Journalism at the University of Westminster and course leader for the BA (Hons) degree in Journalism. Used to be a magazine journalist, mostly for i-D, The Face, Arena and Esquire and I covered the net and did new media things for The Guardian, The Observer and the BBC. But that seems a long time ago.
