I am interested in mass communications and plan to pursue a career in journalism. Newspapers are becoming extinct, and more people are turning to the internet for their news. I look on CNN.com every morning to see what the current stories are, as I’m sure many others do as well. In order to be successful in journalism, one needs to have an understanding about writing and digital media. Hopefully, I will learn how to shape my writing for the internet. Also, I have no previous knowledge about blogs but have always been interested in creating one. I am glad that it is the first assignment because I have always been too lazy to create one myself.
