To share or not to share? That is the question
To share or not to share is the question and I think I know the answer.
It’s been a while since I’ve turned to the keyboard to type a blog post. The main reason for the silence is my shift from journalism into a role which sees me offering strategic media advice to the NSW Government. The new gig feels different. As a reporter, I was happy to share my views, thoughts or knowledge on any headline. As a reporter, it’s an expectation. Does that change when you leave journalism? I’ve decided there is always room to contribute to debate.
I still believe in the power of media, communication channels, new journalism and social curation; and I’m committed to staying in the conversation about these subjects.
My new role is with Transport for NSW. I work with a team of talented communicators who review policy about the transport sector and make sure journalists have access to information that helps them tell fair stories about the work of government. I love the job.
Much of my time is spent working on social media policy. The science behind how communication and media are changing is also close to my heart– most people who know me will understand how passionate I am about social and digital coms.
Encouraging voices outside journalism is one of the rich rewards of social media.
Thank you for letting me blog a personal update about my current professional role. To share or not to share? I say share!
