For the month of May, we are devoting this blog to our wishes for journalists present and future: “MAY you … “

Every day, you will find a tip, a tidbit or a top-of-mind piece of advice we hope will help you now and later

A small sign hangs on a wall in American Diner, Liverpool, New York, that reads:

Dinner Choices

1. Take it   2. Leave it

It’s pretty funny if you’re the cook who made the dinner. Not so funny if you’re on the other side of the table expecting a menu.

May you always have choices.

Right now, you do. For example, you can get your news and information any time, any place, any way you wish. That’s pretty amazing.

Another example: Check out The Experiment at Columbia Journalism Review: Our List of the 11 Best Journalism Experiments. The takeaway is that there sure are a lot of talented people creating and recreating ways to provide news and information just so we’ll have healthy choices.

That’s kind of key for journalists because we both consume and create content. It’s an awesome task to get it right. Why? People’s tastes can change. What appeals to them today might not appeal to them tomorrow.

So our wish for you today is twofold:

May you always have choices

May you always provide choices

Keep those hungry news and information consumers well fed.
