Missing in Action… but not for much longer
It appears as though I’ve been on hiatus from this blog for far too long again. To the dedicated readers and followers of this blog, I offer my apologies and hope you hang in there for just a bit longer… ’cause I’ll be GRADUATING IN TWO WEEKS!! 🙂 Then, it will be time to celebrate Christmas with my family before I ring in the new year European style and then return to posting on this blog in time for something called the presidential primaries.
Speaking of Europe, I encourage you to check out the new blog I created this semester: http://globalcitizenjournalist.wordpress.com/. I am currently enrolled in International Development Communications, a class for which I am required to complete a final semester project. And so, Journalism’s Global Citizenry was born!
The focus of this new blog is on the emergence of citizen journalism amid the growth of and greater access to online media. I admit this new blog is a bit “wonkier” with a more academic focus than Stephanie’s Political Arena, and you may find it useful on nights when you can’t seem to fall asleep; however, I intend for it to be a learning tool for myself and readers as I provide insight into research analyzing the growth and significance of global citizen journalism, the advantages/disadvantages it poses to traditional media, and how it could threaten and/or benefit global security and international diplomacy in the long run.
Once I finally wrap up that sought-after M.A. and have only my full-time job, learning Danish, and occasional globe-trotting to focus on, I plan to make room in my schedule for an occasional post or two to this blog as well as my other blog. Until then, I’m off to wrap up my blog project, final portfolio, and final research paper now that I’ve recently survived presenting at another public opinion conference – all while still working full-time. Has Christmas vacation arrived, yet? 😉
