How to be a better citizen journalist?

Looking for websites and podcasts with tips on being a better citizen journalist/blogger.

I'm giving a presentation this weeking for budding citizen journalists about writing basics, and will be focusing on the differences between writing for online and conventional print.

While there are numerous books available on becoming a better writer and journalist, I'd like to suggest a handful of free, online guides, geared towards bloggers and community journalism.

At the top of my list are Copyblogger and the Grammar Girl podcast.

Both of these are great because they offer nuggets of advice on different aspects of writing every few days.

Alas, I'm looking for similar sites that help with grammar, creating better headlines, interview techniques, etc... suggestions?

Citizen journalist? That's a new one for me. CJR is always a good starting point for journalism. Journalism is always journalism.
