tuesday november 9th

okay class, this is a short week...no class thursday in honor of Veteran's Day. in that regard, i highly recommend that instead of just "sleeping-in," you do something to show respect to your grandfather, cousin, aunt/uncle, who may have served in the armed forces or who is serving now. or maybe find the blog of a current member of the military and send that person a heartfelt message expressing how much you respect them for their sacrifice [whether or not you agree with the current conflict, you can still reach-out to those whose lives have been interrupted by it].

also, since this is a short week, we will not have a blog analysis due this week. instead, at the end of class tuesday, i want every one of you to print out the first page of their "big blog," Blog #2. make sure this page has the URL on it as well. i want to see what progress you have made so far.

finally, so that you can start looking ahead to next week, instead of analyzing a blog of someone overseas, i will ask you to analyze a blog that is similar to the blog you are creating, but reaches a different audience. this will probably be a blog you will want to link to...in your analysis, show the strengths of this blog, but also, differentiate how yours will serve an audience unique from it, or serve the same audience but a little better.

hope you all are doing well. see you in class, blob
