The future of the journalism industry is a bit undecided, I have learned. Personally, I think there still will be newspapers and magazines and "print media" as a whole; however, it's difficult to come to terms with the fact that internet journalism will be taking over. I wouldn't exactly mind writing for an online publication, but there is something different about it. Seeing your name in print (in a newspaper or magazine) is different than seeing your name on a computer screen.
This may have something to do with the generation I grew up in. We were raised learning how to use the internet so it doesn't really hold a special place in our hearts. For those in the generation before us (e.g. my parents), perhaps the internet and online journalism is more highly valued; therefore, seeing their name in a byline online would be exciting.
For me, I feel that seeing my name in print would be more gratifying, more rewarding that on a screen. I think we all are going to have to realize this may be the future of journalism and we might need to just accept it. At some point in our lives, we will probably have to write for online. Not to say we won't be able to write for newspapers or magazines, but we need to work our way up somehow. And writing for the internet is better than not having a job.
