I told my journalism students, who are just being taught by their professors that the new way is "digital first," that they have to stretch again--this time all the way to "mobile first." What does this mean if you wanted to be a feature writer, an investigative reporter, a business writer, or a TV producer?
Nothing. You can still BE any of those things. You just have to avoid being wedded to old platforms.
Sigh... yet another "blogging is dead" story.
Yes, I know.. But wait. It turns out that the above article is arguing about instant publishing platforms/ services, not blogging per se.
Who cares what service you run your material on, and what you call what you do?
It's all writing, and it's still all instant publishing... so it's still all blogging.
