Right. I think I have found another use for this blog. Tell me what you think:
Very often in journalism you have interviews booked in the diary in advance.
Now, before you go and talk to these people, obviously it’s a good idea to do your research and try and understand what they are about and what things your potential readers might want to know about them.
So why not, as part of that research, actually ask your potential readers?
So, from now on, if I have an interview in the diary I will try and post information about it on the blog in advance. That way if anyone thinks there is something they would particularly like to know about, they can put their question forward.
Now, I can’t make any promises that I’ll be able to ask them all, but it might contribute to a better informed interviewer and interview.
This week I’ve got two quite interesting subjects to write about, so I think I’ll use the next two posts to give some background on them…
