Blog Presentations

Blog presentations will take place in class during the final week. Worth 30 points (20 points for your presentation/10 points for participation at both sessions). Order will be chosen at random.

Each student will have about 5-10 minutes to present her/his work to the class. You should talk about the highlights of your work during the semester, the challenges, what you learned, and advice you would give to others students or journalists who undertake similar projects. Prepare what you want to say.

Talking points for blog presentations:
-What is your beat? Who was your primary audience?
-Give a quick overview of the types of stories you covered. (But don’t scroll through every post).
-Talk about one success. What are you most proud of?
-Talk about one thing that didn’t turn out so well. What went wrong?
-How much traffic did you get to your site? Anything unusual or unique in your traffic?
-Who was the most interesting person you interviewed this semester and why?
-What is the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?
-What is one thing you learned about journalism in the process of covering your subject.

Also: Pitch your final project idea as part of your blog presentation. Answer the following questions:
1. What is your story idea?
2. How you will go about it? Research? Reporting? Events? Sources?
3. How will you present the story?

Your presentation will be graded on your preparation, your evaluation of your own work, and your participation in the class while others are giving their presentations. You must attend both presentation sessions to get full credit.

About Nick DiUlio

My name is Nick DiUlio, a freelance writer and editor from New Jersey. I have been passionate about the craft of writing since I was old enough to spell, and this love has led to a successful career in journalism and creative nonfiction. As a freelancer, I have covered a wide range of topics and personalities, as my published work has focused on everything from profiles of artists and important political figures to hard-news stories with both national and local appeal; from restaurant and beverage reviews to tips on fashion and finance; from health and wellness pieces to celebrity Q&A’s. My work has appeared in several local, regional and national publications—both in print and online—including Philadelphia Magazine, Slate.com, Miller-McCune, New Jersey Monthly, Eating Well, and Delaware Today. Additionally, I am the South Jersey Bureau Chief for New Jersey Monthly and an adjunct journalism professor at Rowan University. To be sure, the broadness of my body of work seems only to be matched by my boundless interest in almost every subject imaginable (except Warren Zevon). Check out some of my most recently published work here.
