Nathan R – Introduction to the Blog

Posted: December 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hi All,

and welcome to the class blog.

As I put in the syllabus, this blog will be used for announcements, posting interesting links and continuing the discussions started by the readings or in class.  Part of your participation mark is based on your level of involvement in the blog and you are expected to post at least one relevant post in the blog per class (or 2 per week).  Your contributions can be in the form of posts (like this one) or comments to posts (see below).  To create a post you will need to log in using the information in the syllabus, or you can use the comment function of the blog to add comments to existing entries without logging in.  To do this simply use the “anonymous comment” function.  In either case, make sure to include your name in the subject line of the post or comment so that we know whose comment is whose.

Feel free to be inventive, to include links to other (appropriate) material you think will add to our discussions, or to use the functions of WordPress to add to everyone’s blogging experience. You can feel free to experiment with the formatting of the blog, add pictures, etc. — just as long as you remember that as anyone can make formatting changes so some might be temporary rather than permanent. Also I would ask you all not to delete anyone else’s posts. If there is anything anyone finds problematic, drop me an email and I will look into it.

All the best and happy blogging!
