Reading through some of my old (and very) old articles, and maybe I’ve been out of the newsroom game for a while, but the stories I wrote during that time have held up surprisingly well: A lot of stories about the recession. Covering my beats with stories no one probably read. Some enterprise pieces. My first byline at the paper - an article I wrote as part of the screening/interview process (and got me the education beat).
I wonder if those BuzzFeed kids coming out of j-school now could cover three different beats and write strictly about budgets for weeks.
