Hello English 111!

I invite you to experience the world of blogging. Believe me this is a new territory for me but I am willing to not only explore it, but also to share and learn from you. On that note, I invite you to bring your ideas, papers, comments and much more. As long as you can connect your ideas, thoughts and comment to Writing Today and the class discussions I think you should be fine. But please remember, if you choose to talk about something that is not in line with English 111 or composition, you will need to ask for permission (from me that is) before you posting the comment online.

Other than that, I welcome you to sign up for a free blog space and email me the url. I will add it to the “coursefeed” tab in Blackboard and so that we (as a class) can visit and comment on each others blog.

Enjoy blogging!

Ms. Kamara
