Guidelines for Media Credentials for Bloggers

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Evil Bastard (aka Chris_L), Oct 10, 2006.

  1. As you may recall - the Washington Capitols asked Eric McErlain to come up with some guidelines for issuing credentials to bloggers. Eric has come up with his final draft.


    I think he's done a pretty good job with the guidelines but I'd be curious about any comments you guys have to make.

    I would also like to point out that Eric recently got a job writing a hockey column for NBCSports.com to go along with the job he got writing about the Baltimore Ravens for AOL Sports. I point this out to show how a blog can help your career. Eric now has two pretty decent gigs to go along with his full time job as a speechwriter. The part-time sportswriting gigs are a direct result of people reading his blog.
  2. Sounds like he adapted the rules for credentialing bloggers that were adopted by the two national conventions last time -- no surprise, given his other life, I guess -- and did a good job of it, considering there weren't any rules for this sort of thing.
