As part of a book chapter on the subject I’m putting together some research on if and how blogging has changed our work as journalists. It would help me enormously if you could take a few minutes to complete this short survey on ‘Has blogging changed your journalism?’.
If you could pass on the link to other journalists who blog I’d be very grateful too.
It’s all anonymous, and the results will be published here as soon as I compile them, with an email notification to members of the Online Journalism Blog Facebook group.
If you want to say more on the subject, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – or indeed, blog about it yourself and link back here so I know about it.
Allison White has written this wonderful roundup of last week’s news for the OJB. But now she’s got a job. Persuade her to do this again in the comments…

I’ve set up a Facebook group for online journalism educators and academics. I don’t know about you, but I find Facebook groups very useful for organising things quickly, asking for feedback, or finding the right people quickly. Teaching or studying online journalism can be like taking a shot in the dark sometimes, so I hope this will become a place to network, share ideas and gather support. Join it if you think it’ll be useful – I’ll try to assign an admin in every country so we can make it as useful as possible.
PS: There is also the Online Journalism Blog Facebook group.
The Online Journalism Blog’s sister site, JournalismEnterprise.com, has a review of the social bookmarking site socialmedian (currently in alpha). I’ve also added a video comment facility to the site, so if you’re on Seesmic you can post video comments on any of the sites reviewed on JE.com.
