Advice for online publishers and bloggers
Dear AfriGeneas Writers Family:
I’ve become a fan of Kim Pearson who writes for the Online Journalism Review. (Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism).
When we write about our family histories we are more than authors, we’re reporters. Therefore I believe that this article will be of value to you.
Kim Pearson describes her work as:
“I teach writing for journalism and interactive multimedia at The College of New Jersey. I also blog at Professor Kim's News Notes (http://professorkim.blogspot.com) and BlogHer (http://www.blogher.org) for which I serve as a contributing editor. My current interests are in coming up with new models for interactive storytelling, including the possibilities that might derive from employing videogame narrative conventions into news presentation. I have been reading OJR with enthusiasm since its inception, and I look forward to participating more fully in the dialogue here.”
Her article “Legal and business advice for online publishers and bloggers” gives writers “ steps you can take to help protect yourself, and your website, from lawsuits and other legal problems.”
