Why Blog? Searching for Writing on the Web

Reid, Alex
Series Edition: 
Vol. 2

Blogging offers unique opportunities for first year composition writers to develop personal motivations and rewards for writing. This chapter will help you encourage students to find an approach to the unique rhetorical features of blogging as a genre. Students may need detailed assistance as they get started in the blogosphere; this chapter will includes strategies students can use to identify the kind of blog they wish to create, suggestions for composing blog posts, and technical advice on issues such as layout/design, widgets, embedding media, comment moderation, and RSS (a web feed). If blogging is new to you as a teacher, you will find guidance here expanding how and what you teach.
