A Good Internship
I have an intern under my wing at the new job. It's the first one I've ever had, and it's a nice thing to have. At this particular magazine, we don't relegate the interns to menial tasks. Instead, we make them load up on blog postings. It's a way to keep the blog flush with content and a way for them to be continuously churning out content.
In a way, *all* blogging is a kind of internship, an exercise in first-draft writing.
What do you think??
