Wednesday, July 23, 2008 aggregates journalists' personal j-blogs

It started with a question by PressThink's Jay Rosen, posed via microblogging site Twitter. A week later, Kiyoshi Martinez launched

The site aggregates journalists' personal journalism blogs -- as Martinez notes, it's kind of "meta." It's also a little surprising that it doesn't appear to have been done before (at least not as far as I can recall since I started blogging in 1999).

My criteria eliminated blogs written in an official capacity for a newspaper or news organization. The point here was to find personal blogs, not work blogs... I’m more interested in what people have to say about their jobs and the field itself.

A quick scan of the aggregated posts yields plenty to ponder.

If you're a professional journalist with a personal blog on journalism, you can e-mail Mr. Martinez to be added to's blogroll.
