Tools to Help You Create Your Next Infographic | PVM Garage | Tools for journalists | Scoop.it
Designers know that no matter how eloquent a writer you are sometimes a picture just says it better. Visual data can often translate information better and faster than textual. Today, we are wired to recall what we’ve seen faster than what we’ve read, which makes infographics a great way to deliver your message.

Old Meets New: Newspapers Take to Instagram

digiday.com

David Sallinen (WAN-IFRA)'s insight:

Newspapers haven’t flocked to Instagram the way they have to Facebook and Twitter. Which makes sense. Instagram, unlike the other platforms, can’t drive people back to the site because the photo-sharing platform doesn’t embed live links. Also, they can forget about monetizing.

How to Write a Blog Post Quickly... How I Wrote This 1,000-Word Blog Post in 10 Minutes

How to Write a Blog Post Quickly... How I Wrote This 1,000-Word Blog Post in 10 Minutes | Tools for journalists | Scoop.it
Today is a little different. I'm actually not typing at all -- I'm writing this blog post by "talking it" on Evernote. And it only took me ten minutes.I wanted to test this out because although being a Staff Writer here at HubSpot means I have lots of time to blog, I've also worked at places where I didn't have that luxury. When you're balancing 100 different tasks, it's hard to find time to actually sit down and write. (Or maybe writing just isn't your strongest suit.)Luckily, with a little creativity, it's actually still quite easy for you to blog. So in the spirit of being meta, I'm going to show you how to write a blog post without actually "writing" anything. In just 30 minutes (I added on an extra twenty minutes to give you buffer time for importing, formatting, and editing) you should have a polished draft ready to publish. So let's get to it!...
