- http://loveblog.in/heart-break/why-do-marriages-fail/ I chose the love blog on why marriages fail because it went into depth on the topic and that is what I look for when I evaluate a problem. The blog provided answers that people could relate to and the reasons the blog gave why marriages fail are ones of truth. The audience gave their personal stories and they added more reasons why marriages fail.
- Student Success Blog- I chose this blog because it allowed me to get some great information on being a successful student. It has categories for every aspect of a student’s life. I am a student therefore I can relate to the blog.
- New Media Blog- I had to do it. I like the style of the blog. It was highly decorated and the blogs covered some interesting topic such as “Cyberwar” and Wikileak.” These topics are geared more towards new media.
- Name of blog-lalove12
Catch Phrase for blog- I just do me.
My Blogs mission is to post my reaction about the articles that my New Media and applications teacher, Dr. Matthews, gives us.
- Set up a twitter account.
- I found out that social organizations, newspapers, and sports teams all have twitter accounts. I can get my tweets to my phone. This is awesome.
- I am following CNN because I think their news is efficient, Barack Obama (this President is really trying. I support him), twtfm (share music on twitter, Arnold S. he is the governor of my state (worst governor ever), Golden Corral (I am so fat), Dunkin Donuts (Great Coffee I swear), TNA Wrestling (I like watching men fight), TMZ (those people are very funny to me because they are the paparazzi time two).
Visual Story Telling with Photographs
- The difference I noticed in the pictures I took with my sister is that the light shining on us in the door gave the pictures a blurry look. I took pictures if my aunt, my uncle, and my sister-n-law in different type of Lights the pictures came out well.
- I used Windows Movie Maker to do sound slides. I don’t have photo shop.
Crowd Powered Collaboration
Tawnell Hobbs -The Dallas Morning News:http://dallasisdblog.dallasnews.com, Brian Krebs-The Washington Post: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/securityfix/, Stephanie De Pasquale http://my.quadsville.com/StephanieDePasquale/blog.
- I discovered that Brian Krebs from the Washington Post and Stephanie Pasquale seem to have the best collaboration with their audience. They have more comments on their page and they seem to meet people on a personal level. Pasquale blog seems to put her story of how thanksgiving went at her house on display. Very few journalists put their life on display where people can see it. I think when people they can relate to you they will comment a lot more and I think people appreciate journalists who keep it real.
- I am not into the journalism part of new media, but if I had to set up a journalism site. It would be sort of like cnn.com. It would have comment section, news for every type of user, and a fun zone for kids. I would also have a suggestion link where people could give me some suggestions on what kind of news they want on the site.
- Newspapers are getting more input from the audience, they have blog sites, they are trying to cover every major event and they are trying to get more students involved in the newspaper as well.
Make Journalism Visible
I interviewed my friend Jessica on why she likes uttyler. I did it from my phone. It wsn’t good quality I don’t like it, but my phone is an old model.
- Pop My Culture with Cole Stratton and Vanessa Ragland
- Smartest man on the Earth-Greg Proops
- The Long Shot-Todd Levin
- My Favorite Stranger-Craig and Ahm
- The Zesty Show
The best Podcasts was the smartest man on earth because he was funny and I could hear him clearly. I like the fact he didn’t sound like Perez Hilton or the paparazzi. The Long shot by Todd Levin basically told a story about a movie he was doing with the Muppets. It wasn’t that interesting. The Pop My Culture podcast slammed celebrities. I am not really into gossip so I didn’t like it. The zesty show was actually my second favorite because it takes me into the world of real news.
Telling Videos with Video
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/12/06/huckabee-draws-contrasts-between-him-and-palin/: TRENDING: Huckabee draws contrasts between him and Palin.
- This would make a good news story because a reporter could show the contrast between Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee by capturing their political lives on camera. They are both considering running for President so I think this would be a perfect time for the citizens to get to know them. I would love to learn more on Huckabee.
- I made my video on youtube.com http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXu3sNb2am4
Managing News as Conversation
- The story on CNN’s blog site and the one on the blog for your life were both about celebrities. Mike Tyson told the story of his past life and Rihanna was more on her life’s choice. Mike Tyson’s has been known in the media as a bully for quite some time. I now know the reason that Mike Tyson is a bully. Rihanna’s blog is on how she would raise children. I like to give my opinion on certain issues. The blog with Rihanna was more geared toward celebrity news. The piece with Mike Tyson was geared more towards getting to know the man behind the celebrity.
- I joined twitter and I already had a facebook.
- I joined ballhyped.com. My user name is brandi17. It’s a website for people who love sports. It gives you sports updates and game schedules.
Building A digital Audience
- U.S. Strains to Stop Arms Flow. I though this article would be good for readers and robots because it deals with the nation as a whole and the immediacy of the situation.
