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.
