Friday New Media News Roundup

It's Friday, so it's time for the news roundup. Here are my picks for the week.
  • The 10,000 Words blog (you know I love this blog) offers 10 Ugly Truths About Journalism. My two favorites? Journalists are biased and no one has all the answers. On a side note, please vote for this blog in Mashable's 2009 Open Web Awards' "Best Site for Journalists" category.
  • As many journalists mull the decision to stay or start a new career, this new poll from finds that most job seekers are open to career changes.
  • The blog posts about a topic I've covered regularly here: hyperlocal news blog start-ups. This post follows the trials of Justin Carder of Instivate, maker of the free Neighborlogs publishing system for local news sites, and founder and owner of the Seattle neighborhood blog
  • And speaking of start-ups, the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz takes a look at others out there, including, Baltimore Brew and Chitown Daily News.
  • I recently saw a post on one of my journalism listserve asking whether someone should write for free. A post on the Editor Unleashed blog offers 5 questions to ask before you make that decision.
  • And I'll finish this post with 5 Things to do before submitting a magazine article, from the Urban Muse blog.
Have a great weekend!
