Hello, students, and welcome to our blog. Let’s work today to get everyone on the blog, sharing and writing.
Our address is http://english2367at115.blogspot.com
The first thing you must do is get a Gmail account. Then, using that Gmail address, please write to me at email@example.com and I will invite you to the blog. You must accept the invite and follow the steps in order to use the blog. Let’s do this in class.
Once you are a member, you will see your Gmail address appear in the upper right hand corner, and only then can you post to the blog.
--To do a New Post, you must again find that link in the upper right hand corner. Click New Post and a window will appear to let you compose.
Please title all your writings, and use a username that is either your name or nickname so we know who is writing. Only class members will be on this blog.
For your first post, write one paragraph where you introduce yourself and some things about you, including a Fun Fact or something unique. That way we can always have this on the blog as a way of knowing and remembering each other. (By the way, if you have one, and want to post a picture of yourself, that’s great. If you don’t want to, that is fine, too.)
In your next paragraph, describe your process for composing the poem. What challenges or surprises did you find? Did the poem turn out how you expected? Why or why not? If you feel comfortable with it, please post the poem in this blog entry.
Finish by writing about the profile in Holding On that has meant the most to you so far. How did you connect to this writing? Use at least one passage of direct material from the profile in your response.
Good luck, have fun, and just let me know when you need help! This first day is all about getting comfortable with the blog, and for some of you, this will take time.
