For our first lesson with Karl we set up our wordpress blogs and learnt some basic information about it. We also had to write our first article for our blog which was ‘what kind of journalist am i?’. To help structure our first blog we were given three questions to answer. These four questions were ‘what topics are you interested in as a journalist’, ‘which blogs and news sites cover topics the best’, ;do you have any hobbies or interests in addition to topics you have chosen’ and ‘which bogs and news sites covers topics the best’.
Reflection: Setting up the blog was fairly easy as we were talked through the stages of making the account and setting the blog itself up. We also had a document with print screens which showed you stage by stage what you need to do. Writing the blog about what kind of journalist i am was useful as it helped me to focus on what i would ideally like to write about.
