Extra Credit Blog Post Assignment (5 Points; no comments needed to complete the assignment)

Due on your blog by 9 p.m. on the due date.

For this blog post, you and your blog partner(s) should talk to each other in person or by email and reflect on what you've learned through the process of writing the blog. This is an extra credit blog post; you don't have to complete it.

Here are some questions, though you don't need to answer all of them. Although you've been speaking with a collective voice on your blogs this semester, please feel free to voice your individual opinions for this exercise.


1. What were your expectations when you began writing this blog together? How did you think it would work?

2. Did writing the blog together work as you had hoped it would? Why or why not? What would you do the same? What would you do differently?

3. How closely did you adhere to the "blog manifesto" that you wrote early in the process? (Your blog manifesto was your first blog post.) Did it help the way that you thought about the topics you wrote about? Why or why not?

4. What blog posts, either yours or another group's, did you particularly learn from or enjoy? Why?

5. Overall, what did you learn from this blog assignment?

6. Other thoughts and comments?
