Start Small, but Start Now

Mindy McAdams, the Goddess of Online Journalism (she probably won’t like that …), has a post up today about a graduating student who came seeking advice. Her problem: she wants to be an independent video journalist but has no web skills. Mindy recommends building a simple blog and getting content up on it, not worrying about a fancy web site.

The idea is to get to work on content and to not waste time on learning new skills. She wants to be a video journalist, so she needs to do that. Students everywhere should take that advice – the only way to get better at what you’re doing is to do more of it. Start small, but start now.
