Jerz: Writing for the Internet (EL236)

17 November 2004

Web Authoring Workshop 2


Write a brief, but informative web page that describes your independent project, and features annotated links to online resources that have helped you out so far (or that you plan to use in the near future).

Your page will be most useful to me, as I try to offer you guidance and feedback in these last few weeks, if you offer links to any drafts or prototypes that you have online, to blog entries you have already written describing your progress, to classroom exercises you found helpful, etc.

You are welcome to work together and/or ask me for help.

You are welcome to recyle the two-page progress report that is due today, but if you do, make sure that you revise your work so that it follows the conventions of online writing. (See especially the Top 5 Conventions of online writing.)

An annotated list of links (see an example) is a page that includes not just the bare URLs of useful sites, but rather features blurbs that describe and evaluate the content of those pages.

Blurbs: Writing Previews of Web Pages
You're reading a blurb now. If it helps you decide whether to click the link, then it's doing its job.


Post today's exercise at, and use the stylesheet "".
