Why journalists should create their own Web sites

Tony Rogers at About.com wrote a good post on why journalists should make their own Web sites, and yours truly was one of the reporters mentioned.

Tony did a nice job laying out the benefits of publishing a portfolio of your best work. He found some horror stories of reporters losing years of work because their employers deleted their stories from the newspapers’ homepage.

I’m glad he mentioned how I didn’t want to make my Web site only about me. When I set up this site, I wanted a place where I could blog about the compelling work of my colleagues, open-records issues, tips for digging up information, and why journalism matters.

Thanks, Tony.
