Blogging Portfolio 2

I'm not going to lie, I despised blogging in my early days during the fall semester. As I look back on my first year of college, however, I am so glad I had the opportunity to do this. I think blogging a day before the assignment is due to be read helps class discussion tremendously. The following links are to various entries I have compiled in EL150 since February 2006.

Eats, Shoots, & Leaves 1
Do apostophres have feelings, too?!

Eats, Shoots, & Leaves 2
I didn't know there was so much history behind commas and punctuation!

Eats, Shoots, & Leaves 3
The Comma Family Tree - Semicolons!

Bowers Article
Antony & Cleo are more competitors than lovers.

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time 1
The Father of the Year Award goes to...Christopher's patient father.

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time 2
Christopher's uniqueness is very evident in this last half of the novel.

Resurrection Blues 1
The prologue really captured my interest here...

Resurrection Blues 2
...This play just keeps getting better! Charley's "disappearing act" really made me wonder...

Resurrection Blues 3
The ending confusd me a bit, but the conversations between Henri & Stanley kept me reading!

Foster (21 & 25)
Although much of the information is obvious, it is important not to be looked over without consideration.

Cutting a Dash -
I usually laugh at what Truss is saying, and always learn something new!

Diamond Age
Eeek! This was definitely a challenging book!

Hayles, "Is Utopia Obsolete?"
Hayles presents a very informative article that really helped me with understanding Diamond Age better.

Edson, "Wit" 1
Vivian's strong character is evident early on in the play.

Edson, "Wit" 2
As the play continues, however, Vivian's helplessness and lonlieness really show.

This is a great way to make sure you've covered everything, Amanda. Don't forget to add some annotation -- in other words, either change this entry or create a new one with the links sorted out according to what criteria each is fufilling -- depth, timeliness, xenoblogging, etc.

Looks like you'll have a great portfolio.

Thanks Dr. Jerz! I've been working on this for the past few days so it's not finished yet.
