Josh Halliday – Blogging his way to success

leave a comment »

The Guardian’s media and technology junior reporter Josh Halliday graduated this year and went straight into a prestigious job on a national. How did he do it? Traditional hard graft but in a multi-media world.

Journalists in the Twittersphere have been aware of @JoshHalliday his ideas, projects and work, for some time.

He developed the SR2 Hyperlocal blog, breaking news stories before the local daily and winning awards for it.

In October Josh was part of a panel of young journalists speaking to City University about how blogging helped them get jobs.

Josh will be talking about his blogs and how he developed as a journalist by starting from scratch. He found his niche and was working in the right way at the right time.

If we’re lucky we might find out what The Guardian media and tech team think is the next big thing.

Sign up for the meeting at The Eagle in Gloucester Road, Brighton, from 7.30pm on Monday, December 6 January 17, through the Meet Up group.
