I am very excited and humbled to be joining some of the best digital journalists in the industry as a member of the #wjchat crew! I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in the weekly chat for the past several months and am looking forward to expanding the project by sharing ideas, best practices, tips, tools and more with other digital journalists across the country and world- right on Twitter!
For those of you who don’t know, #wjchat is a weekly Twitter chat for wen journalists on Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m. EST. I have benefited greatly by the ideas and thoughts shared in this chat and hope that others have benefited from my contributions as well. If you have not eavesdropped or participated in a #wjchat yet, I strongly recommend it.
I was on my way to NYC yesterday afternoon when Henry Lopez, a #wjchat crew member, sent me a message saying that I was being invited to join the crew. I could not have been more thrilled! Of course, I missed the first #wjchat that night because I was at Yankee Stadium (leave it to me to miss my first day)!
I am thrilled to help shape the nature and content of these chats at a more fundamental level and am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with the #wjchat crew members on a regular basis. I look forward to learning, sharing, and bringing all I can back to the Record-Journal newsroom. Full speed ahead!
