The Working Journalist in the Age of the Internet


 Mark Glaser is MediaShift.  A blog that will track how new media—from weblogs to podcasts to citizen journalism—are changing society and culture.

Loved his post on doing work you love. He says:

First things first: The most important thing for you to do is find work that you love, that you have a passion for. Don’t take a job because it’s what your parents want or for the money. My dad and uncles are all lawyers, and they assumed that when I was in journalism school that I would just eventually become a lawyer later. Uh, no.

Mark tells a great story. You could do it too. I'm doing it right now. It's called re-invention.

Many thanks to Craig McGinty.   He offers some great hints and tips to small business owners, writers, self-publishers and anyone else interested in getting the best out of the internet.
