What was your first job as a journalist?

My first real job was at the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes! I did my sample news story for the Caller-Times on a typewriter but worked on a computer. They still had glue pots on desks, though.

What tools and software do you use to do your job?

I can't live without email, Google, Twitter and Facebook but still take notes the old-fashioned way with pen and paper.
