Hello there. In case you happened to be wondering exactly why it is that I write these blogs, the answer is simple. I write them for one of my english classes: EL 236: Writing for the Internet. The title above refers to the fact that while footprints in the sand will inevitably be washed away, what you write on the net stays for quite a long time indeed. Each blog entry is a reflection on an assigned reading for this class. Within each blog I try to incorporate some of my own personal sense of humor as well as incite ideas pertaining to what we were to write within the minds of others. Looking down below you'll be sure to find a few chosen entries that I feel represent certain qualities that vary in strength from entry to entry.
Coverage: When it comes to coverage, it can be meant in varying ways. For commercial time, coverage is best when there's little. When it comes to people's lives on cell phones...it's best to pick the network with the best coverage (provided you can actually find out wich one that really is). In the blogs below you'll find that I attempted to adequately cover the text or reading that was the main topic of the assignment.
Bleeding Eyes, and Standard Salivating Schnauzers Stunned Suddenly...or not.
Timeliness: I would pose one question: Who in America doesn't have something on their person that tells time everywhere they go? In today's fast-paced world, time can seem to make or break you. Thus, I like to try and get things done early as seen below.
Attention: Easy Site, and Gnomes!? There're gnomes in the garden! Look at the prints on the carpet!
Interaction: I continuously hear it said that Humans are social animals. Well, I still think we're animals, but I think I've finally been convinced that we're social too as evidenced by everything that I'm involved with this year! Naturally then, everyone wants to garner the comments of others. Scroll down a bit and you'll find either a blog where I posted question(s) and/or received several comments or responded in detail to a peer's blog.
They're gone, I tell you! GONE!, and I've got the only key to the lock, right?
Depth: And no, I'm not talking about the depths of cement ponds or souls, but rather the ability to post my ideas in a relatively organized fashion so that my reader has to scroll down the page a bit. That is, unless you have one of those fancy-pants, really big flat screen computers.
Just because it sounds intelligent, doesn't mean you should trust it., and Harmless joke vs. heartfelt satire - difference?
Discussion: Discussion can be just like any other fruit-bearing tree in that it can produce something you can really sink your teeth into. (Does it bear mentioning that it can be either sweet, sour, or both?) Then again, it's always possible that you might just grasp onto something someone else wrote and run for your dear life with it. Hey, it happens! Just wander on down below and you'll see what happens when the literary sprites get 'hold o my fingers!
Don't Confuse Me, Please - Kevin Hinton and I'm with smiley - Jacquelyn Johns
