“News can be boring without the right touch. You have to be opinionated in a clever way, but not biased. Speed is important — every site is going to be running the exact same story at the exact same time — but you have to get it right.”

Go to concerts. Email Publicists. Email Editors. Keep your ear to the ground and try to break stories before the mainstream gets them. If you have an angle nobody else is taking, that’s unique enough to get people interested in your stories.”
