Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow says us journalists who also have blogs are overworked – or words to that effect.

“There’s no question of the added value of the material that you get involved in – blogging, podding and so on are an extension of the day job,” he said, according to journalism.co.uk. “But it is very easy to stack up an enormous amount of activity that then begins to erode what you can actually do. You then stop being a journalist and start simply being a transmitter.”

I couldn’t agree more – as I wrote here, it’s easy to spend increasing amounts of time blogging, at the risk of taking your eye off journalism, which in my case is my primary role as editor of Computer Business Review (CBR) magazine, and a writer of sister publication ComputerWire’s daily news.

“People in the media who have got to know about a particular area and who blog are encouraged by their employers to do as much as possible,” said Snow. Tell me about it. No, literally – tell me about your life as a blogger and how much time you spend blogging (possibly to the detriment of other activities?) by hitting the ‘Comment’ button below. Love to hear from you.

Then again, isn’t it also true that the line between being a blogger and a journalist is becoming less and less clear?
