How important is Rangers FC to Scottish media? – media buyer’s views

Maybe so. Certainly this story still has a long way to go yet. It is clear that Scotland's media does generate money through the existence of Rangers and will no doubt want to see it reemerge in some form or other.

Why has the BBC chosen to leave Twitter out in the cold for Queen's Jubilee coverage?

Yeah, comments were on the whole pretty negative, but should the BBC be ignoring such an important platform just to bury its head in the sand? As we've seen, brands that embrace social platforms such as Twitter can improve their own content. With so many people discussing their coverage, they really should have been ready to utilise that in some way. I felt the same was true of Eurovision a couple of weeks ago - they are missing a trick!

Interesting stuff Colin. Is the story about your cousin true? How long we're they married? He sounds like a whole story himself frankly!

Paying for the future

It's a difficult area this. To get started in journalism I actively sought to work for my local newspaper - did so for two months for free - and it helped when it came to applying for things as it showed my enthusiasm to become a journalist and taught me more than I learned at college.

I would encourage anyone who wants to become a journalist to try this, but at the say time it's hard to not look exploitational by offering such a placement.

I believe that anyone who takes up such a role needs to grab it with both hands, and while it will be a lot of work, they should also be savvy enough to think of their CV and make sure they gain the experience they feel they need for the future (wherever that takes us.)

A qualification is very important - but there's nothing better than hard graft and experience (not to mention contacts) to show that you can offer something to an employer. Having The Guaridan on your CV can't hurt either. Can it?
