After almost a year of not blogging decided to give it a shot again. It’s funny I’ve had more than 100 articles published in 10 publications, including a few articles on 3A, 4A pages of USA TODAY http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2011-04-26-chernobyl-anniversary-nuclear-radiation.htm but when it comes to blogging I feel like I don’t have anything important to say. Maybe it’s because we’ve been taught in the traditional old-time fashion journalism world to keep our opinions to ourselves, I guess that’s true in the old world. With internet however, I guess the rules change and journalists are many times required to blog. I will give it a shot and try to learn how to “unwind” from my journalism writing.
