Beatblogging definition

April 27, 2009

Beat journalists cover a specific topic.  They work a beat whether it is crime, planning, politics. They focus. And beatbloggers do the same. They focus on one area but instead of reporting in a one-dimensional way as is done with traditional news, they focus on the two-way process of communications. They engage and discuss. And if you aren’t moving to this engagement process, you will be left behind.

It’s all about the comments.
