Building the essential reading list for online journalism

What are your must-read links for online journalism?

Thankfully, my book is nearing the finish line of production. One of the final pieces is an appendix I’m working on that will offer readers a list of blogs and Web sites that are, for me, essential reading to stay informed about online journalism.

Because the book can’t be easily updated, and technology and the ways people use it are changing every day, it’s important to give readers a way to stay informed. Help me make the list as comprehensive (but not overwhelming) as possible.

Following is a list of blogs and Web sites that I used in writing the book and frequent on a regular basis to keep in touch with what’s next in journalism. Let me know if you have a suggestion for one that I’ve missed. (Links added 8/22/09 8 a.m.)

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your
    favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the
    easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think
    about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
