This mini-course teaches students how to create a blog on the topic of their choice. We’ll begin by talking about the history of weblogs and by looking at some of the vast number that exist. We will investigate how text and image work together to create different tones and rhetorical strategies, and we’ll talk about writing well for the online audience, including blogging ethics, using links effectively, how to write stylish content that achieves a specific purpose, and how to think about the community a blog can create and the attention it can receive. You must be familiar with the web to take this class, but you don’t need any other specific technical expertise.
