Bloggers aren’t journalists – they’re bloggers!

Many months ago I entered the new media industry with a lot of assumptions about blogging and journalism. Having been in both sides of the fence, the blogging industry and the media are two sides of the same coin, yet have really not been tossed into the fire — this was back in 2007. One year does a lot to people.

Now that I run a blog advertising network I can lay several assumptions to rest as I’m learning so much about the blogging industry. We’re learning so much because we’re actually making things happen with the BlogBank. I’ll probably post a few of these learnings soon. They are, actually, very surprising.

hi jayvee!

good cause! hope your plans would push through. it’s about time to turn blogging into science so as to make it at par with journalism.

good luck!

I hope good fortune favors such activities. I would be willing to help 🙂

One thing we might need is a permanent site/blog to list down events for bloggers. I am willing to dedicate a page on my blogs.

I’ll contribute in any way I can!

Photography is my main skill, but I’m sure there are also others who might be more qualified than I am to teach.
