Media Hints, Part 1: Face the challenges, rise above them, keep writing great copy!

December 1, 2009

As I’ve mentioned before, amidst the ongoing crisis in media-land, the only way to rise above it and stay positive is for meeja-types to get out there, promote themselves, and take the work as it comes – no room for mopers and whingers. Let’s face it, there’s enough of that on every site and paper at the moment.

So, the motto of ‘stop moaning, upskill and get on with it’ starts at home: and here it is from me, too.

The start of a new weekly column for me on the excellent portal www.bristol247.com for Bristol Editor – you can read it here.

Any thoughts or feedback, either contact me directly, or via the post on Chris Brown’s fantastic hyperlocal news venture.

    The idea of promoting a culture of not whinging and talking about Chris Brown’s ‘fantastic’ site is ludicrous – like all the NUJ lackeys, he could whinge with the best of them.

    Hi Fred

    Thanks for your inputs, but you’ve missed the point.

    My reference to being positive, rising above challenges and cross-linking to Chris Brown’s growing Bristol247 site was a link into being responsive to digital in changing times as content creators.
