Final reminder

This is the last 'real' posting on journalism tips for beginning religion journalists, and it's my top tip on this blog.  This plea addresses an uninformed method of reporting. Not to criticize anyone -- I used to do it, too, before someone set me on a better path.

Remember to focus on the top results of a meeting -- what administrators will do, what their goals are, what challenges they will address, what was voted, etc.  Don't just lead with headline, "[type of people] meet/gather for meeting" and show a group photo.

That's the tip.  You may even wish to re-read the previous paragraph.  For more on this subject, please see my August 30 and March 7 postings.
