Hey everyone, a couple more things to note before you start blogging. I will be sorting through a large volume of posts coming in at different times, but luckily Kate Briggs has come up with a clever way to organize this process. Since you are making six posts in total, I've created categories (Writing 1-Writing 6) to which you can add your posts*. So if you're doing your third post and you're in Section 12, add it to Writing 3; Section 12 before you post it. The category option appears right below where you type in the body of the post.
I will do grading based on these categories, so if you don't assign your post a category it most likely will not be graded. Also, it doesn't look like you can go back and assign the category after posting, so I would recommend doing it right away so you don't forget. I appreciate your help with this, as it will make things a lot easier for all of us.
One more thing: please add your full name to the end of all posts. Otherwise, all I see is your UMN username.
*I've also decided to divide the categories into sections 12 and 13 for all subsequent writings. Section 12 meets at 2:30 and Section 13 meets at 3:35.
