These sites are listed in no particular order of importance.
The first site I am going to list is an excellent source for story ideas, reporting strategy, resources and tips. It also functions as a job database and links to tons of other useful sites. This site is the Journalist’s Toolbox.
The second site I am listing is a site that promotes excellent examples of published journalism so student journalists can compare their own work and see what they maybe can do a little better on. This site is Byline : Published Work.
The third site is a blog about everything journalism and is written by a journalism teacher. A lot of the blogs are related to student-journalism and it is written by an old-school journalist who comments a lot about the change from her older style of reporting into the convergent media world of today. Some of her blogs are almost a step by step on the transition process. This site is journajunkie.
The fourth site is a site that gives examples of the very best coverage from all media of the most relevant public-interest stories of the day. This site allows us to compare not just reporting from a blog or a newspaper, but allows all journo students from all media high-quality examples in many different genres. It also allows us to see ideas that work well that we could possibly use in our own reporting like packages and things like that. This site is Columbia Journalism Review.
The final site I will list is also a massive database that analyzes stories, offers extensive job listings, offers many journo tool-kits, a huge resource list with things like ethics codes and how to handle certain situations. This site is the Project for Excellence in Journalism.
