Q&A on podcasting and journalism with Claire Wardle

"User generated content comes in all forms and the sheer quantity of material is eye-watering. The most talented journalists today are those who can find the best material and verify it as quickly as possible. The best way of verifying content is to contact the person who uploaded it, and to ask them detailed questions about where they are, what they can see ... Verifying user generated content is much harder than people think, it’s not just a case of doing a search of Twitter and publishing the first thing you see."

How ‘Grammar Girl’ turned a single hobby podcast into a growing media network | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

She says: “I post links to my own work, but I also do a lot of curation. I post links to other things that I think people who like Grammar Girl would also find interesting…I answer a lot of questions [about grammar], as many as I can, and I think people appreciate that — the fact that I’m there and I’m constantly giving good information. It helps people remember me when they’re thinking about buying a book."
