In preparation for your group blogs (to be announced in Wednesday’s class), you’ll be taking a look into the past. There’s no Briggs chapter for this week; instead, you’ll take a leisurely read through what has come before. Read the following:
1. Morgantown Problems (2013): This is one of the best group blogs produced in this class, and I want everyone to have a look (especially the Panera post and its resulting comment thread).
2. At least ONE of the other previous group blogs (see list):
Move-in Morgantown (2010)
The Eclectic (2011)
Graduation Preparation (2012)
A “J” in the Life (2012)
Mountaineers Connect (2012)
Morgantown Man Cave (2013)
Wild But Not So Wonderful (2015)
Your response will focus on the two blogs (Morgantown Problems and one other) and what they did. What are they about? Is there a clear focus? What are some of their strongest posts? Weakest? (yes, you have to pick one – be constructive) Finally, and most importantly, what would you have done differently, and how does that influence your own group blog plans? Your response is due as a comment to this post by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, February 28.
