this is a neat test
Here is the text of my draft to be.
How's it Work?
This entry explains a little bit about how blogs work and also how you can use this blog. It's really easier than you think!Continue reading "How's it Work?"
Why a blog?
Why bother with the blog? Well, you don’t have to use it, but I think it can be very useful. Blogs make it easy to collaborate on writing – a group member can post a draft and the other groups members all see it at the same time and can comment – and see each other’s comments at the same time, too.
A blog is also nicer than most traditional Web Forum systems (like what you may have used in WebCT) in that nearly everything has its own easily printable web page. I also happen to think it has an easier interface and looks nicer overall. All sorts of information is taken care of automatically – time of posting, who posted it, putting it in the right category within the page, etc.
A blog is also a good place to post more general class stuff. For example, I’ll be putting this information on the class blog. You can also post general stuff for the whole class there, as well – like technical questions, research tips, whatever.
This is the place to talk about Olive Senior
This is the place to talk about Nalo Hopkinson
This is the place to talk about Elizabeth Nunez
This is the place for you to talk about Djanet Sears.
