Hello, students, and welcome to our blog. Let’s work today to get everyone on the blog, and writing.
Our address is http://english1110at1010.blogspot.com/
The first thing you must do is get a Gmail account. Then, using that Gmail address, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 your Fun Fact or something unique. That way we can always have this on the blog as a way of knowing and remembering each other.
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?
Finish by posting your poem to the blog.
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.
