Styles of live blog: Guardian, New York Times, BBC, FT | Multimedia Journalism via @andybull | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Live blogging can be broadly defined as a technique of live reporting whereby the journalist covers a fast-moving and often very messy and confused event with a very regularly updated stream of latest snippets of information.

The basis for live reporting is usually text, but the addition of stills, live-streamed video clips and on-the-spot audio using Audioboo or other platforms can add greatly to the effectiveness of a live blog.

Live blogging can be practised from a desk, in which case the journalist running the live blog is finding, sifting, curating and publishing material from third parties.
