As the social media world turns...blogs bog down
As the social media world continues to evolve, I am more often using Twitter - @chrondigger and and the Houston Chronicle I-team's Expose Blog to communicate about my work and Facebook for personal and professional posts.
My latest post on Expose was about a study by the former head of pre-trial services in Harris County who says that his study of 6,000 inmates showed that those who couldn't post bond later got tougher punishments. Expose Blog - Can't post bond? You'll do more time
Every once in a while, I will continue to update and add to my Dig blog entries. I recently updated my Immigration Reporting Tips and Links I'll blog about my trip to UTEP for an upcoming immigration conference here too.
But if you want to regularly follow my work, my favorite stories or my data journalism tips - check me out on Chron.com (or if you're a subscriber on houstonchronicle.com) and follow me on Twitter instead!
