tuesday of week 9

this week you will analyze a blog that is similar to the Blog #2 you are creating, but not exactly the same. this is the 7th blog analysis you are doing and will be the last. [i will give you all full-5% credit for the 8th, which we aren't doing].

so, for this week's analysis, find a blog that is on the same topic as your "big blog" but maybe has a different focus, or a different audience. analyzing this blog should give you some insight into ways to make your own blog better, and more useful.

the blog you anaylze this week may in fact be a perfectly targeted and functioning blog, but might have different goals that yours. so when you analyze it, i want you to look for the strong points of the blog--don't just criticize it and glorify how yours will be much better.

i will perhaps put a brief outline of how you should format this blog analysis #7 online later, blob
