My Weblog Portfolio - What's Included

This is essentially a list of links to all of the entries on my weblog and all the comments I made on others' weblogs that I have chosen to include in my portfolio for Dr. Jerz' Writing for the Internet course. These entries/comments are those that I feel best demonstrate my achievements and growth as a blogger.

"Pop-up" Solutions? - A look at Microsoft and its questionable programming and marketing solutions.

Blogging at SHU - A comparison of my thoughts when I first started my weblog and my thoughts after I maintained it for about a month.

A dot-com to McDonald's? Say it isn't so! - An examination of the connection between a former member of the dot-com industry and myself.

What's the story? - Predictable Patterns in Popular Culture - A look at the patterns I have noticed throughout my studies of popular culture, and their effects on us as an audience.

BlogMorph - HTML and Aesthetics - A reflection on my past experiences with HTML coding and how a classmate's presentation rekindled my interest. Also includes a short list of style tips for weblogs.

Writing for the Web - A reflection on what I learned by reading Crawford Kilian's Writing for the Web: Writer's Edition textbook.

The Weblog Handbook - The Etiquette and Ethics of Blogs - An in-depth analysis of the various rules of conduct that Rebecca Blood offers to the blogging community in her textbook, The Weblog Handbook: Practical Advice on Creating and Maintaining Your Blog.

Hot Text - The IF Connection - An explanation of the parallels that I drew between interactive fiction games and the website organization methods mentioned in Jonathan and Lisa Prices' textbook, Hot Text: Web Writing That Works.

Writing for the Internet - What do you think? - My reflection on the WFTI course as a whole, as well as some questions I wanted to ask my peers (along with their responses).

Below Zero IF! - Individual Project Proposal - My project proposal for the individual assignment. I chose to create an interactive fiction game, and because I got the inspiration from others' weblogs, I wanted to give them credit on my own.

Attention WFTI (Jerz) Students - Weblog Portfolio - Important - I feel that this entry best represents my contributions to the classroom community thus far, and demonstrates my ability to take a role of leadership online.

On books and things. - An entry on Tim's weblog, which describes his difficulties with the course and includes some constructive comments from myself and others.

Hypertext Fiction - Better than Interactive Fiction? - An entry on Vanessa's weblog that launched a pretty thoughtful discussion on the differences between the two.
