Wondering if you are on the right track with what I am expecting from your blogs? Here’s a checklist for you based on what should be at your blog by the end of February. I will be evaluating your blogs again (for a grade) at some point in early March. It’s likely that I will not announce the specific date ahead of time. I will go back and look at previous posts again.

As I’ve reminded you in class frequently, it’s critical to keep up with your blogs. If you haven’t already done so, you may want to create an Editorial Calendar for yourself to help schedule your required posts.
Finally, in some informal checks I’ve done recently, here are a few things that I’ve noticed:
- When you put in a hyperlink, don’t let the reader see the URL. Ever. Simply hyperlink from a few relevant words.
- Blog comments (the ones you write on others’ blogs) need to be added to ONE post of yours, not as individual posts in your blog.
- Proofread. Any errors diminish your credibility as a future PR practitioner.
- See the Improving Your Blog video I created for you in January after the last blog check.
