The local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (the people who brought you this) is taking you bloggers seriously. So seriously, in fact, that they’re ready to help you learn the tricks of the trade in an earnest bid to encourage a new crop of citizen journalists to raise up, start their own WordPress blogs, hopefully do some actual reporting and lure you away from time-wasting vanity projects like these!
That’s right: This Saturday, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., SPJ is putting on the SPJ Blogging Academy, billed on its Facebook events page as
For any current or aspiring bloggers, an intro to community journalism. We’ll tell you about how to avoid ethical and legal pitfalls, how to get better access to government entities, and how to make the best use of fresh reporting on your blog.
Check it out Saturday at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law School, Room 305. Get more info on the Facebook page right here.
