Blog Portfolio

This is the second installment of my Portfolio blogs. For those of you that did not follow my blog the first time around I will give you a brief exposition about me and my Movable Type cause. My name is Leslie Rodriguez and welcome to my weblog sponsored by Movable Type. I am a freshman at Seton Hill University and as part of my Writing for The Internet class and the New Media Journalism program I write and respond blog entries on various topics.

These entries are then posted for public view on my blog. This entry acts as an introduction to my blog portfolio which includes selected entries that reflect on our classes panel presentations, the three texts which we use in class.

Leslie, we seem to be time-traveling here... several of your entries are dated in the future. Is that deliberate? If not, you might want to check the calendar/clock on the computer you're using.

Roamer (Leslie):

I intentionally dated those entries in the future because I am trying to put them a certain order. I try to put them in order on my blog because I want them to be in the order that they are on my Cover Page. Is there any easier way to do this? I want to be able to add new non-portfolio entries but they seem to throw off my rhythm/stream of entries.
