For Wednesday, please write a (min. 1 p. double-spaced, max 2 pp.) blog proposal detailing the following:

  • What is your goal for your blog? I’ll leave it up to you whether you want to set a goal for this semester only, or for a longer span of time.
  • What kind of audience do you want to attract?
  • Why is your blog idea interesting? Why will readers care?

Print this proposal and bring it to class.

In addition, please read pp. 25-68 of Cabinet of Wonder, and listen to this interview with blogger Jason Kottke. Feel free to check out his blog, kottke.org, although we will be formally evaluating it later.

[note] I’ve edited this post to remove the Margaret Mason book. I’ll explain why on Monday, when we’ll talk about copyright!
