New to following blogs?


If you're like me, you are a newcomer to the blogosphere. For a long time, I asked, "What's the point?" The point is, blogs are a great way to keep up with news, information, and new ideas on topics of interest. If you want a quick start into the world of blogs, particularly those targeted to media in general and broadcasting in particular, here is the list of blogs which I follow. Fire up your blog reader (I use Google's Blogger http://www.blogger.com/, and Google Reader http://reader.google.com/, but there are plenty of choices, including your browser) and check out any of these which look interesting:
