About the Blogger

My name is Erin Kelly and I’m a 21-year-old junior majoring in journalism at Northeastern University. I enjoy writing about everything from current events to personal experiences, and hope to be successful in my writing career after graduating next May. I write for the Huntington News on campus, as well as freelance for a website in northern New Jersey called SocialJersey.com and the Northeastern branch of HerCampus. I plan to travel to Turkey and Jordan this summer to pursue a five-week long international reporting dialogue.

As the job market (and the economy) struggles, I have noticed many college graduates and young people have began to create their own professions and companies rather than search for positions that may already exist, establishing themselves as entrepreneurs. Throughout this blog, I hope to feature entrepreneurs and the businesses they create, as well as the new technological advances that help to make this wave of entreprenuialism possible. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @ekelly89.

    My name is Laura Allen and I am currently in Journalism 2. I am writing my final paper for this class on the current state of the journalism industry and what students are doing to get name recognition and exposure (i.e blogs and public forums). I recently interviewed Dan Kennedy and he gave me the URL to your class blogs. I was wondering if you would be willing to discuss your experiences with blogging and reporting with me in a quick interview. If you are willing to answer some questions please e-mail me at your earliest convience and we can set something up.

    Thank You,
    Laura Allen
