Sources of news articles/content for a news site

Sourcing for article for your news site, could get really frustrating, most times you just do copy and paste. Copying other peoples contain would hurt your site and you don’t want that, besides writing your own content gets you into the act and you’ll be a pro in no time.

This article is aimed at giving you major sources of news articles for your news site. It doesn’t matter your niche, these tips work for all niches.

Firstly, you’ll have to be able to identify news worthy article or story. Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself before publishing and story.

1. How timely is the article; is it stale?

You’ll have to make sure the news is not stale; it must be hot and trending.

2. Who is involved? Are they prominent?

News about celebs and famous people tend to make the headlines more.

3. What is it about; is it ODD?

If the person involved in the news story isn’t famous, at least the article should be odd and eye catchy.

Major news sources include:

Videos

Videos are one of the most important and popular way to get news stories. You could watch these videos from YouTube, Facebook, twitter or Instagram. It could be a random video shot by any one, what matters is that its news worthy.

Videos can really come in handy when searching for a blog post. It could be an Interview, a Fascinating or funny video, a documentary.

Take for example; few days ago I saw a video of popular comedian, Taooma being interviewed by pulse.ng. In the video she made mention that she was only 21 years old, I found this interesting and I knew most people weren’t aware of this, so it would make I good blog post.

You could write I whole article base on the outcome of the Interview. As they you can get news from Truth or Dare games: you get fun facts about a particular celebrity or personality.

Whether you want you want to extract a whole story from a video or you are using it as research information source for a blog post it’s entirely to you. See the article I wrote from a video Here

Social Media

Social media is the major source of news stories, in the Nigerian Blogging Environment/community. Major Nigerian bloggers, including Linda Ikeji Blog, Insta Blog and Leaked9ja get there their news from social media post, although this method is more common with entertainment news sites.

With the advent of modern technology and introduction of a vast community known as the Social media [Twitter, Facebook, Instagram] people have become whistle blowers and citizen journalism is now predominant.

People now tend to report any unusual, funny and fascination topic online, but unless you have a really large followership, your posts are most times limited. So these bloggers search on social media for these kinds of posts and amplify it by making it go viral on their sites.

One of the major Interesting places to look into for news on  social media are Handles or Profiles of Celebrities, as these kind of post trend more and since these celebrities already have a large fan base. This method is actually beneficial to the blogger, because he taps from the fame and influence of such personalities and makes his online presence know.

Articles

Another major way to get news articles for your site is actually to search online, basically “ASK GOOGLE”. I don’t advice you entirely copy word for word anyone’s article, if you wish to write on the same topic as that on another website, you can simply make an advanced copy of the article by adding more details into the articles, research more on the topic, gather more facts.

Alternatively you can use information from any site in your blog post, by adding the site as reference or cite them in the article.

On beat news sourcing

This entails you as a blogger reporting a case they witnessed, like an event, accident or occurrence. Examples are court proceedings, election scenes, schools, hospitals, accident scenes, burial ceremonies, weddings or birthday parties which are newsworthy.

This method is used for investigative journalism, where a blogger/reporter goes undercover to investigate a case. This is mostly done by professional journalists who are well paid to do these investigations which would be of interest to the general public, they are also provided with appropriate security in case they are exposed to an threat. So I advice you leave investigative journalism to the pros.

When it comes to trolling in the Hip Hop world, no one does it better than Hip Hop legend and business mogul 50 Cent as he is on the ‘neck’ of Floyd Mayweather again with his trolls.

50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson and Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has been in a very long ‘unsettled’ beef for a very long time now with both successful business men throwing shades at each other with the least opportunity.

But 50 Cent is way above Mayweather in trolls as he mostly makes the Boxing champ always feels uncomfortable on social media. Recall he started trolling Mayweather with his hair when the former welterweight Boxing champion made a public appearance with a heavy mustache could of months ago.

50 Cent in a post on social media posted the photo of his former best friend Mayweather with the heavy mustache trolling him that he took some hair from his ‘a$$’ and implanted it around his mouth.

The television guru couple of months ago wanted to settle the long beef with his former best friend in a boxing match after he threw a challenge to Mayweather of which Mayweather accepted the challenge for the boxing match.

But 50 Cent knowing what he was doing later called off the match 48 hours after Mayweather accepted the match saying the head of the ‘The Money Team’ can’t read two paragraphs of his best New Times Selling Book.

Well 50 Cent is back again trolling Mayweather about his hair when camera captured the Boxing champ with fully grown hair on his head during a pre-match brawl with YouTuber Jack Paul last night.

Floyd like you can’t show people my hair. LOL

WTF going on, on champ head… I heard he had his pubic hairs put on his face. Lol #bransoncognac#lecheminduroi
