Check out this journalist's blog for some inspiration

This personal blog by journalist Suzanne Yada is worth a look see for its professionalism and forward-thinking. She was working as a copyeditor in Visalia, CA., then decided to go back to school at San Jose State University to become better at journalism. She is now a journalism major and a business minor. Two of her posts, offering New Year's resolution advice to student journalists, got batted around on Twitter, where I first saw it. Here's the links to her two posts:

Resolutions for journalism students, part 1, BECOME INVALUABLE.
Resolutions for journalism students, part 2, NETWORK LIKE MAD.

Reading her tips for student journalists makes any working journalist rethink his or her own toolkit.

I also think her site is worth taking a look at for its architecture. Note the links to social networks, and her link journalism below that. I'll find out more about Publish2, where her links to articles about the changing field of journalism are posted. She's inspiring in an age when we can use some of that.
