I recently wrote a post about editing your own work, and it got me thinking about journalism.

There are a number of good blogs out there for journalists – mostly written by journalists.

MediaShift provides insight and analysis at the intersection of media and technology.

It was launched in 2006 and continues to tell stories about “how the shifting media landscape is changing the way we get our news and information.”

“MediaShift correspondents explain how traditional media such as newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, music and movies are dealing with digital disruption and adapting their business models for a more mobile, networked world,” the blog says.

I like the story quality on this blog.

Some posts that caught my eye include How Audiences are Using Facebook Reactions for 20 Publisher Pages, How Die Zeit Reinvented Itself by Talking to Users, Focusing on Speed and Depth, and How Publishers Can Drive Traffic with Email Newsletters.

The Buttry Diary is the blog of a veteran of the news business.

Steve Buttry spent more than 40 years in news.

Currently, he’s the director of student media at the Manship School of Mass Communication at Louisiana State University.

I enjoyed several posts, including Tips for Helping Your Career Through Promotion, Tips for Building a Helpful Professional Network, and Beat Reporting: Mastering the Topic or Territory You Cover.

Media Nation covers “press, politics, technology, culture and other passions.”

It’s written by Dan Kennedy, an associate professor with Northeastern University’s School of Journalism. Kennedy specializes in digital media and alternative business models for news, and he contributes media and political commentaries to WGBHNews.org and The Huffington Post.

Notable posts include Somehow, the Boston Herald Keeps on Keeping On, Why Print Nostalgia Won’t Save the News Business, and The Globe and the Post Upgrade Their Digital Offerings.

The Editor’s Desk provides “thoughts on editing for print and digital media.”

It’s managed by Andy Bechtel, a copy editor who teaches at UNC-Chapel Hill.

I really like Bechtel’s Q&A series. He talks with many folks in the media and communications industry.

Some of my favorites include Q&A with N&O Reporter Mandy Locke on the Deadly Force Series, Q&A with Shana McNally, Proofreader at Costco, and Q&A with Mike Sundheim, Vice President of Communications for the Carolina Hurricanes.

Other posts I enjoyed on Bechtel’s blog: Old Style from New York and Guest Post: 7 Thoughts on Clickbait From a Student Journalist.
