http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/can_you_use_that_in_a_sentence.html
- In this entry, I make an assertion about assertions. In other words, I describe how important assertions are to writing a decent thesis statement. (Roberts Ch. 7)

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/animal_cruelty_at_its_finest.html
- In this entry, I examine the connection between Anton Chekhov's "The Bear" and the emergent social/ sexual revolution in Russia at the time the play was written.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/pro-nunt-see-ay-shun.html
- Here, I write a letter to Roberts concerning chapter 13, a chapter about Prosody. I discuss how not many people know the difference between spelling and pronunciation, and consider how I can fix this in my future teaching career.

Where I've Been:
http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/where_ive_been.html

Xenoblogging: How I contributed to the blogging community

Karyssa Blair's "X Marks the Spot... Sometimes"
http://blogs.setonhill.edu/KaryssaBlair/2009/11/x_marks_the_spot_sometimes.html
- Because Karyssa and Brooke blogged about the same topic, I referenced Brooke's blog in the comment I left on Karyssa's blog.

Jessica Orlowski's "Animal Cruelty at its Finest"
http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/animal_cruelty_at_its_finest.html
- I mention Brooke's blog entry in my blog.

Jessica Orlowski's "Can You Use That in a Sentence..?"
http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/can_you_use_that_in_a_sentence.html
- I encourage my classmates to post their methods of finding thesis statements so that we can tackle that problem together.

Brooke Kuehn's "Poor Toby"
http://blogs.setonhill.edu/BrookeKuehn/2009/11/poor_toby.html
- I was the first one to comment on Brooke's blog, and spurred a long discussion as a result. I also left an extremely long comment.

ROBERT BROWNING, "PORPHYRIA'S LOVER":
http://jerz.setonhill.edu/EL237/2009/11/browning_porphyrias_lover/#comments
- For the benefit of the class, I found a link that explained the definition of "Porphyria," and left this link on the class website.

Wildcard:

Ghosts Among Us:
http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/11/ghosts_among_us.html
- I believe that I put a lot of thought into this blog entry. This could provide a potential thesis statement concerning how the three ghosts in A Christmas Story relate to the various persons of the Holy Trinity.
