Lecture 12

Today we were blessed with the hilarious Steve Molk, the self-made entertainment blogger. He offered the class of JOUR1111 some valuable advice regarding journalism as a career path. 

Gem number 1: As a journalist, find your demographic; find your audience. Essentially, you can't please all of the people all of the time. So find who you can please, and write for them. Write about what interests you. It's bound to be your best work. 

Gem number 2: The way you represent yourself determines your future. Market yourself in a way that separates you from the crowd. 

Gem number 3: Discipline yourself, and write everyday. 

Gem number 4: Engage in social media, i.e. Tweet as much as you can.
