Got to make your gopros ready to go, bro
Just got my first print comic! We’ll see how it compares to the iPad.
Let’s get this blog started. All things politics in Southwest Michigan.
I’ve started covering politics and government for the Kalamazoo Gazette. It’s a fun beat: always something new going, always complex. But beyond all the budgets and agendas and motions, it’s been hard for me to find the human story. I don’t know if it’s all about telling the human story — that is the the ultimate goal of a journalist — but to tell a story in a different way. Tell the story of the city in its inner workings, through programs and taxers, through the people who work for the city.
The additional challenges are:
a) making people care
b) make the information engaging
c) provide context.
Covering the City, State and Federal government now (it’s a temporary gig) how do each of these work together, how are they different.
Why should people care? What is the human story?
The adventure begins.
