Welcome to the Course Reading Blog

The syllabus and complete list of assignments are available in Canvas. This blog is the focal point for our online discussions of reading assignments.

In class, I will walk you through the process of starting your own blog at blogs.setonhil.edu.

As part of that process, I am asking you to practice using your blog by clicking the “Login/Blog Me” button to create a response to this post.


Trifles (Susan Glaspell)

Trifles — full text

  1. Find a passage from this literary work that you feel is worth discussing in class.
  2. Click the “Login/Blog Me” button you see on this page. If your blog is set up properly, clicking the button will create a new post on your blog. Edit the placeholder text so that it presents the passage you want to discuss, and also explains why you chose it.
  3. Submit your post by pasting a permalink to the blog post you just created.
    1. X http://blogs.setonhill.edu/gusgriffin
      (Above is the link to the home page of a blog  — it’s not a permanent link that points to a specific post on the blog.)
    2. X http://blogs.setonhill.edu/gusgriffin/wp-admin/post-new.php
      (Above is the URL of the editing screen where you work on your blog posts; anyone who visits that URL will have to log in with your user name and password in order to read what you wrote.)
    3. http://blogs.setonhill.edu/gusgriffin/2017/jan/23/trifles
      (It doesn’t actually matter to me whether your URL includes a date, but above is an example of a permalink to a specific blog entry.) 
  4. Along with the URL, add a comment that gives your classmates a reason to visit your page. (Try to be more substantial than “Hey guys, come see what I wrote!” or “Here is my assignment.”)
  5. After your classmates have had the chance to post their comments, follow some of the links your classmates have left on this page. Leave comments on the posts written by 3-5 classmates.
