Newsworthy. Newsworthy means that it is of sufficient interest to the public or a special audience to warrant press attention or coverage. News stands for exactly what it sounds like, something that is, NEW. When people are searching for something to report on, they are searching for something that is new, something that no one has heard about yet. Reporters are looking for something that will interest the public. But not only that, they are looking for something that no one has heard about yet. Determined reporters want the hottest story that is out.
Another thing that makes a story newsworthy is it’s significance. How many people has the event effected? The more people effected, the more newsworthy the story becomes. Proximity is also very important when one is reviewing a story. The closer the story occurs to the reader, the more interest it brings to the reader. When things occur close to home, they hit a more tender part of our heart. This is why, as a reporter or news, it is important to find stories that are close in proximity to the readers.
Everybody knows what they personally enjoy reading in the news. This is what we must evaluate when we are trying to make an article newsworthy. We must remember what it is that we enjoy reading, and try to mirror that in our writing. Although we cannot possibly ever please everyone, we will surely touch a certain group of people with our writing. It is all about expressing ourselves, in a way that will touch others. Mold your writing into something that is newsworthy. Mold your writing into something that is entertaining. Mold Your Writing
So go, write, express yourself in the best way that you know possible by placing beautiful words together in a delicate way. Be blessed, and allow those blessings to pour out to others.
