Week 5: Blogging as Storytelling

For this assignment, you have two options:

1) Respond to the Week 5 Prompt, written below. [100 words]


2) Respond to at least two of your peers’ responses to the Week 5 Prompt. [60 words each]

No matter which option you choose, make sure to tie your responses to our course readings (from Week 5 and/or previous weeks).

Prompt: For your post this week, read through the last week of 3 of the blogs you are following, and consider how recent posts relate to posts you have seen previously. Do you see narratives unfolding in these blogs? Do you see techniques for creating/maintaining narrative that you’d like to try (or avoid) in your own blog?  Pick the blog with the most interesting narrative and share your thoughts on it here. (Building on our theme from last week, you may also want to consider how visuals such as photos interact with that narrative.)
