What is digital English to me?


Honestly, digital English seems to be a very broad term that applies to all of those things that are written online, but I think that there is a difference between something that is specifically written for an online audience (a blog or an online magazine) versus something that is published in print and then put online through a PDF or some other form. In addition, there are some online texts that are not as well done as others. As a former journalist, I think about the differences in terms of those who write blog posts/Facebook posts/Tweets about events and the journalists who are trained on how to report an event. While citizen journalism has become important in our ever-changing world, I think that there is still value in the professional journalists. Similarly, this is how I would distinguish between those who just simply write whatever they want online and those who adhere to particular conventions for online publication.
