About the Course

Students will explore the personal and professional value of being able to create and update a blog and understand the many purposes and functions of blogs. Students will become familiar with blogging jargon (posts, tags, archives, etc.), explore various blogging platforms, learn how to create and update a basic blog, and analyze exemplary blogs. Writing exercises will focus on developing a distinct, consistent voice for the web, generating a steady stream of topics, and writing for a specific audience. Students will also consider how additional media (photos, videos, sound, external links) can support the text.
