Moving ahead with your blogs

For your next assignment, please write a 250- to 350-word post identifying at least five blogs or news sites that you will find helpful in blogging about your beat. Describe the sites, link to them and explain why they will be useful to you. Be sure to use a category and some tags.

Include a relevant photo using Wikimedia Commons or Creative Commons. If you are unsure of how to credit it, have a look at how I handled it here (at bottom of item).

This might sound like just an extension of your first post. This time, though, I really want you to dig in. You’re not introducing us to what you want to do — you’re doing it. The blogs and sites you write about will form the basis of your blogroll, which we’ll go over in class on Monday.

If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to fix your title, your subtitle and your “About” page. Delete any WordPress boilerplate that you see in the posts or the pages.

Please post by 5 p.m. on Friday.
