if you're not blogging...

... go to Lili's class on 28th Feb and learn all about it (Mary Kajewski from SLQ's OPAL showed me). Scott Karp at Publishing 2.0 notes some good reasons why print journalists should start a blog. A few of those could also apply to writers and artists - my favourites: creating a platform for journalism (read: the written word) that isn't dependent on a corporate entity's financial fortunes / learning how to use the technologies that are transforming media / not defining yourself as (only) a print journalist. My favourite is Keri Smith's wish jar journal ~ totally creative, and I learnt a bit about how to write code from her site.
