    Blog Setup

    For class:


      We will setup our blogs Wednes­day 27-Sept
      feel free to cre­ate, mod­ify, and update yours as soon as you’d like — instruc­tions below.


    Once you cre­ate your blog, please post your link in a com­ment below.
    *This is impor­tant so I have your URL! (to update the blogroll ASAP, as well)

      Note if you’d pre­fer your blog to be pri­vate,
      fol­low these instruc­tions — be sure to give me (and class­mates?) access


    In your first entry (a “post,” not a com­ment), briefly intro­duce your­self: flex­i­ble para­me­ters for this, but please include your major and grade level, as well as any other writ­ing courses you’ve taken; your ratio­nale for (or inter­est in) tak­ing this course;
    a recent/on-going social issue (com­mu­nity prob­lem, civic con­cern, etc.);
    your idea (“work­ing def­i­n­i­tion”) of “net­work engage­ment”;
    plus, any other inter­est­ing infor­ma­tion or media you’d like to share
    (e.g. maybe a favorite image or video, meme from past or present? favorite or most-used “social media” platform?)
