You will create and maintain a free weekly blog on Wordpress.com, posting a personal response to a specific topic as assigned by the instructor. All weekly blog topics and due dates can be found in Blackboard.
Your blog must be public; be sure to make it accessible/public and send me the published link every week. Weekly blog posts will be due on Sunday’s. Your posts should be about 500-750 words long. DO NOT send me the link to your blogs “dashboard” or editor. Share the published link of the specific blog post as you would share a link with someone else.
Pick a good title for your blog that will be meaningful to you and to your audience; do NOT pick “COMM 1000,” or “My Blog” or “Communication Connection,” etc. Remember your title is the very first thing anyone sees or reads of your work.
Your blog posts will be evaluated using a rubric that you can download from Blackboard. Your blog will be evaluated based on content, voice, citations, multimedia inclusion, and tagging your posts. This is an opportunity to gain writing experience and begin building your communication portfolio.
