Bloggers to get convention credentials

According to the Boston Globe, the Democratic National Convention will give some of their 15,000 media credentials to bloggers. The Republicans haven’t made up their minds yet.

This reminds me of my days covering the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle in 1999 as a writer for About.Com. I applied for and received media credentials and wrote daily news reports. But I do have a journalism degree and an understanding of the news culture.

Thanks to e-media tidbits from Poynter.
