The case for, and against, integrated print-digital newsrooms

In the dot-com days, publishers tended to treat their online counterparts as second-class bolt-ons to their print editions.
      When it became clear the Web was here to stay, they had to demonstrate they were serious about growing their Web operations. One way to shed their Stone Age image was to eliminate the distinction between their print and Web editorial staffs and combine them into one.

Common print design mistakes

With the current emphasis on digital media, many graphic designers are overlooking some gaps in their print design education and workflow.
      As a result, print production artists are having to correct more simple mistakes and oversights in the print design work they receive. And while more graphic designers are proficient at programs, like Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, simple production techniques, like the appropriate use of CMYK color, are beyond them.

The Brutally Honest Truth about Ghostwriting

It's common in the content marketing and publishing community for busy CEOs and executives to hire writers to write in their name.
      Here's Rand Fishkin, CEO of MOZ, on ghostwriting: "If you are, yourself, a talented writer or a great communicator, and you possess a unique voice, attitude and style, ghostwriting is tough. It may communicate the same concepts, but the message, branding and style can get lost. That may mean less impact from a social media perspective, fewer links, less enjoyment and engagement from readers, and these things, directly and indirectly, can negatively affect your SEO."
