Learning from failure

I'm thrilled to be able to start sharing my thoughts and perspectives to people who are interested in journalism and education in PBS's MediaShift blog. I've been able to get to know the blog's manager, Mark Glaser, through social media and Reynolds Journalism Institute events. We've talked about me joining in on the mix for a while... I finally took the time to start sharing.

Feel free to check out how I explained my big "aha" moment while I was a fellow with the Reynolds Journalism Institute. I tried with every piece of my journalistic energy to create a new project for the November 2008 election. It didn't go as planned. Thankfully the failures I had made me a better journalist and educator.
