As I creep towards my blog’s seconds anniversary, I have hit the silver anniversary post of Cool Links. Yay Me! I’m also getting closer to 400 posts and have passed the 50,000 visits marks. But that celebration is still a month and a half away.
So let the links begin!
1) RTNDF has a really good page with nine lessons for Broadcasting ranging from writing and editing to live shots and promotions.
Created by Train Horns
3) Need a free photo for your web project or online newspaper? Morguefile has ample section of free photos .
4) This one is too much fun. TV Weather guy doesn’t realize his green tie is worth the price of admission on the news that night.
5) The Online Journalism Blog has posted several lessons for online journalism including how to blog, create content for the web and how to twitter.
6) Last Sunday CBS News had a tremendous piece on the artist Shepard Fairey and his struggle with the AP over the fair use of a photograph in the iconic Obama Hope posters.
7) I have been trying to find a good tool for story board creation for a long time. I’m hoping that this will be the one – Pixton is actually a comic strip creator, but I think it will also work well for creating story boards.
8 ) Mindy McAdams is continuing her considerable series of RGMP posts for online journalism skills. The newest one is how to add photos to your blog.
9) Need stupendous Open Source designs for your newest web project, then OSWD had lots of pre-designed web templates.
10) Newspapers need to do more News You Can Use to drive traffic to their sites. This incredible, searchable Stimulus Watch web site is exactly the kind of real journalism people want to see, but don’t.
I’ve also updated my Broadcasting, Newspaper and Photojournalism Syllabii. Check them out.
Update: Thanks to the makers of Toondoo, I think I’ve found an easier and better cartoon creator to make storyboards with. Here’s my first attempt.
