SPJ8 Panel: Blogging and Web Site Creation Demystified

I have the privilege to be part of a small panel at the Society of Professional Journalists - Region 8 Conference in a session called Express Yourself: Blogging and Web Site Creation Demystified.

I will join Mike Orren, founder and publisher of Pegasus News and Jake Batsell, lecturer for SMU's Division of Journalism and faculty adviser to The Daily Mustang.

We hope to provide attendees with some tips, tricks, tools, and techniques to leverage online writing skills. There is nothing magic about this stuff, but it does take commitment, willingness to learn and practice for those wanting to be remarkable.
