Your first blog post

You’ve all set up your blogs now. Next, I’d like you to write your first blog post — an introductory post of 250 to 350 words, linking to at least three outside sources of information related to your beat.

If you haven’t yet chosen a beat, do one you’re considering. Tell us what you hope to accomplish with the beat you’ve selected.

In addition to your post, please keep tweaking your theme, your site title and your tagline.

We’ll spend some time in class on Friday going over what you’ve done. Also, be sure to keep up on the reading on the syllabus, as I would like to spend a little class discussion time on it.

As you keep finding blogs and websites related to your beat, be sure to add them to your RSS reader, whether it’s Digg Reader, Feedly or something else.
