Save The Media

When I stumbled on Save The Media a few weeks ago, it immediately started changing the way I use the Internet… and I’m someone who uses the Internet for, well, almost everything (inhaling news, watching TV, communicating with family/friends, all that typical stuff).

Run by the Family Life editor for The Post-Standard in Syracuse, N.Y., Gina Chen, Save The Media is all about helping journalists become all they can be, online. It is a treasure-trove of tips. I use Google Reader thanks to this post. The blog also helped convince me to join Twitter. And made me realize I can lurk around all I want and read all I want and… then what? If you wants to understand what the Internet means to you, yourself, then you, yourself, have to become an active part of it. Facebook is so ubiquitous it almost doesn’t count.

What I like most about this blog is its practicality. And its optimism. There is no end to the doom and gloom blog posts and news stories out there. But on Save The Media, it’s all about adapting. Embracing. Moving forward. And it’s exciting! There are so many tools out there that most journalists aren’t even aware of, let alone using. The idea of having a newsletter seems like a no-brainer, after reading Chen’s post. Exclusive tips will then come to your e-mail inbox? That’s pretty cool. It really makes me yearn to be back on the reporting beat instead of behind a copy desk, but that’s another story.
