When I did my first interview, I spoke with the star of a high school play (which I never saw). We sat on the grass outside the theater. “Um… What do you want to tell people about the play?” I asked. “Didn’t you come with questions?” she said. “Yeah. What do you want to tell people about the play?” I didn’t finish the assignment.
I didn’t read the newspaper, so why would I want to write for a newspaper? When we were supposed to be interviewing people in journalism class, Jess and I would walk around the school, sometimes stopping to play nibbles on our scientific calculators.
Why interview someone? How does it enhance a blog post or an article? What’s the motivation?
