This week I was Deputy Online Editor at Islington Now during our third and final production week. A lot of the work I did was behind the scenes, helping making sure content came through steadily and doing my bit to make sure it was put up and broadcast through our Facebook, Twitter and other social channels at a even rate.
This week went much more smoothly because the online team had more experience of scheduling content, tweets and posts to space things out (or to give the illusion we were in the office 24/7, which wasn’t too far from the truth!)
I wrote this story about electric cars in Islington. I discovered that nearly £100,000 has been spent on electric car charging points that require a £17 annual license to use. The number of Islington residents who have paid for that? Just 10.
That’s it for the Islington round-up. Production week is over. It’s been a hugely enjoyable three weeks and very satisfying to draw together so much of what we’ve learnt so far on the course.
