Trade Pressed
The explanatory blurb says it best: “Just a trade press editor, trying to hack her way through blogs, digital editions and ‘bonus content.’ … No 20,000-foot-view here — just proofreading and trying to keep up with our on-the-move readers.” This blog is not updated often, but when it is it is worth reading.

Blog by freelance tech writer Michelle Vranizan Rafter covers a variety of issues, including how digital media is changing journalism at newspapers, magazines and Web sites; the art of writing; and tech tools and productivity tips for writers. Rafter also discusses how to run a freelance writing business and how to stay productive and organized.
