You’re going to love it here.

So yesterday you officially set up your blog. Woot! Keep tinkering and playing around with gadgets and layouts. Personalize it, but remember that your blog reflects who you are–it is you living in the technology world. I will be reading it. So will your classmates. So will potential employers or colleges. What I’m saying is, keep it classy.

You will update your blogs every weekend of AP. I will assign something on Friday, and the post will be due on Sunday night. If you know you’ll be out of town; if something comes up; if your blog gets spammed–whatever, just let me know and we’ll figure it out. If I hear nothing from you and you don’t post, it sure looks like you just blew off the assignment.

Do this:

  1. Set up your blog.
  2.  Once you have a link established, EMAIL me your link so I can link you from my blog. This is how I will check it.
  3. Play around with the links on my blog. I have some pretty cool blogs connected here as well as some great websites for you to waste time looking at. And also some useful, academic ones.
  4. Finish setting up your blog, including your “about me” section; link to sites as you work; finish the design of it.

Remember: Your literacy narrative (ROUGH draft) is due Monday, and your Mixtape next Friday.

Happy blogging!
