Welcome to the Online Journalism Blog

Well, I’ve been blogging for almost three years blogging about online journalism at http://ojournalism.blogspot.com/, but decided the time had come to move from Blogger to WordPress. If you’ve never seen the old Online Journalism Blog, I write about online journalism, citizen journalism, blogging, podcasts, vodcasts, interactive storytelling, publishing, Computer Assisted Reporting, searching and all things internet. For the most part this tends to be scrapbook-style quick links to relevant stories with (I hope informed) comment, but when I have the time I post more extensive analysis and reviews.

For a while I’ll be running both blogs together as I figure out how to make this one do what the other one did (all that time spent on email feeds, mailing lists, CSS styles, blogrolls…). In the meantime you might want to check out my sister site for a Citizen Journalism conference I organised at http://citizenjournalism.wordpress.com/
