First day at American University’s journalism bootcamp. It has been fun learning about the basics of blogging and coding, something that modern journalists have to be on top of to be competitive. Since the internet age has created blogging and social networking, it seems like anyone can call themselves a “news breaker” these days. Hopefully, though, professionalism will prevail in trends such as blogging, and people will read the content that is backed up by fact and objectivity, and not just gossip.
