NY Times: Blogging (and b5media) as a Source of Jobs and the “Institutionalizing” of Blogs

  1. I wouldn’t go as far as suggesting blogging schools, but heck, training or workshops on blogging are definitely good.

  2. And may I add: grammar and style. Since there won’t be any editors, one has to have a solid background in English grammar and style.I have always believed that form and substance should go together.
    And yes, I am willing to lend my bulky Chicago Manual and NYT style book to anyone who is really keen on learning. Of course, the diligent blogger who knows his way around the Net has a whole range of tutorials at his fingertips.

  3. I’ve always asked of my interviewees whether blogging should be taught in school and the emerging consensus is ‘no.’ On hindsight, a pool of trained and educated bloggers would indeed mean a crowded market for present-day probloggers.
