Things Done Well
- You wrote conversationally.
- You spoke your minds.
- You backed up your assertions with examples.
Things to Watch Out For
- Typos: Avoid at all costs.
- Avoid LOL and other acronyms. (That’s fine for text messages and Twitter, but not for blog posts.)
- Long paragraphs: Especially when writing for the web, it’s important to keep your paragraphs short. Long paragraphs are hard on the eye and make things much more challenging to read.
- Create new Posts, not new Pages, for your assignments. (And if you already have your assignments on Pages, simply copy the text from the page, and add a new Post.)
Things to Try Next Time
- When you mention a website, provide a hyperlink to the site.
- Consider adding a complementary image to your posts. I tend to find the images I use at Flickr, using the CompFight service to find ones that are licensed for use through Creative Commons.
As always, if you have questions . . .
