Blogging About Blogging

Thanks for blogging about ethics in technical communication this semester! Blogging has fulfilled a requirement for this course (ethics) and it has helped me learn how to set-up a blog. I will be blogging with freshman next semester (a freshman comp class with for health science majors) about ethics in health care. Please give me feedback on how to make the blogging better. I hope to have them replying to each other posts...but I am not sure what else would be helpful. Thanks for your feedback. Also--do any of your classes have facebook groups? What do you think of that possibility? Thanks Again.

Ethics, Nail Guns and Technical Writing
