What do you think of WikiNews?
I like it as I like all news sources. I’m a big believer in all news sources. I have questions about crowdsourced news and how you avoid misinformation. Generally I like more news sources, not less.

For many things my iPhone, for the higher production-value things I use the Zoom H6 and its attachments.

Read news writing. Short sentences are generally better. There are lots of kinds of news writing, some people are more writer-y, but generally short and punchy writing wins.

What's the difference between self-hosted WordPress and WordPress.com?
Self-hosted is your domain on a site that you control. WordPress.com means you don’t have as much fine-level control, and if WordPress.com decides to change their rules, you could be hosed.
