Portfolio 1

| | Comments (0)

This is the first attempt at a blogging portfolio for my American Literature class at Seton Hill University.  There are a lot of links that take you to direct sections of my blog where I have responded to readings and classmates in the class.  There are also a few random selections of sites that are honest or useful.  Take your time, and enjoy the readings!

Coverage - Here are my responses to the readings that were required outside of class.

Xenoblogging - This early in the semester I do not feel comfortable really posting anything here.  I am not an avid blogger, nor do I really have the time to do it regularly.  I will include one entry that I did comment on because it struck a chord with me.  Knowing that I am not the only person who is having issues with this is settling on some level.
