Most journalists do not need to become code jockeys — but it can be quite useful to know the basics of the language of the Web: HTML. It’s not hard at all to learn a few basic tags, and with those few you can have the ability to create and format hyperlinks, fix silly errors in a CMS in the newsroom, and understand the underpinnings of a technology you use every day.
I have updated the HTML and CSS Resources page here, with an eye toward keeping it short and simple.
Why not take a moment to look under the hood and see the engine of the Web? Oh, and I have some links to get you up to speed on HTML5 and CSS3 too.
Do you need some tips for better blogging? Or maybe a kick in the pants to get started on a new blog? Don’t just sit there staring at the screen!
I’ve added the Blogging Resources page to this site and made some updates.
I must confess, my resources are WordPress-heavy, because it’s my preferred blogging platform. If you would like to make a case for another blogging platform, leave a comment!
I have been meaning to move all the content from my Journalists’ Toolkit site to WordPress for a long time. Today is the day!
Well … not quite. I will not be moving everything right away. (For now, all content can be accessed from the site home page.) But eventually, each static page in the original site will have its content moved to a WordPress page within this CMS, and the old pages will redirect to the new ones.
