Blogs worth watching

In Education on 19 Jul 2012 at 10:30 am

I know it will come as a shock to dedicated readers of The Kicker, but this is not the only blog dedicated to things journalistic. Not by a long shot.

If you are like me, you have a few go-to sites for industry news and tips. The Poynter Institute’s MediaWire may be the single-most watched blog in the industry. Jim Romenesko used to be the star of that outfit before venturing out on his own with this blog.

Earlier this week, Online Education Database issued a list of “the 40 best blogs for journalism students.” Sadly, The Kicker didn’t make the list. But I’m willing to overlook that slight and suggest you take a look at the full list. There is bound to be something here for you.

From this list, I look at 10,000 Words regularly as well as Newspaper Death Watch (morbid, it’s true), the Nieman Journalism Lab and Reflections of a Newsasaur. And I’ll be bookmarking others from this list now that I see them.

I’d be interested in hearing about the journalism blogs you find useful. Go ahead and comment with your additions.
