At some point, every editor faces publishing the definitive “how to” article. Here’s one about web editors.
Andrew Hanelly, Director of Digital Strategy at TMG, offers “11 things to consider if you’d like to come out on top” in his recent blog entry, “So, You Want to be a Web Editor? Know These 11 Things.”
Each job comes with its own characteristics, its own unique set of responsibilities and requirements. In addition, each organization has its own character and sets its own tone, has an editorial voice. Hanelly sets out a number of “things” that provide some interesting artistic license and editorial vision. Can his vision carry over to all web editors as a generalized function?
What do you think? Does this sound like the job you signed up for? How would you modify the list?
