For this assignment, you have two options:
1) Respond to the Week 2 Prompt, written below. [100 words]
2) Respond to at least two of your peers’ responses to the Week 2 Prompt. [60 words each]
No matter which option you choose, make sure to tie your responses to either Rettberg’s “What is a Blog?” or Sullivan’s “Why I Blog.”
Prompt: Begin following at least five blogs. (You may find interesting blogs to follow by searching Google, browsing an aggregator such as Feedly, or soliciting recommendations from others.) Read a few sample posts from each blog and analyze those posts using ideas from Rettberg’s and/or Sullivan’s essays. If you can, include quotes and links to your sample blog posts and the readings; doing so will help you to practice for your own blog. If you have trouble including quotes and/or links, write yourself some notes in Evernote or whatever other journal format you prefer so that you can get help during class.
