Blog Posts and Comment Groups

Just a brief reminder that your first blog post is due at 10:00AM tomorrow morning. I’ll be syndicating your posts to the #crit101 blog, using the blog address that you provided. This allows you to see what your fellow participants are writing.

Don’t forget to include #crit101 as a tag, label or category.

Additionally, it will allow you to find the work of the people who are in your comment group.    The comment groups are as follows in case the email I sent you got lost along the way.

Group 1

Group 2

Group 3

Group 4

Also, if you are using Tumblr, you need to install the Disqus comment system in order to be able to receive comments on your posts. There are instructions here.

I’m looking forward to reading your first posts! 🙂

Syndicating Posts, Comments & Tumblr

During the course posts that you publish will be syndicated here as part of the main blog feed. They will link directly to the original post, encouraging your fellow participants to visit your site and read your posts. Please remember to include #crit101 in the post title as well as the post category, tag or label, depending on your platform of choice.

Also, commenting on posts during the course is to be encouraged. As I said in the opening lecture yesterday, this is an interactive course and success is dependent on how well you work with the your peers. With this in mind, there are a number of you using Tumblr. There is nothing wrong with that, but unlike Blogger or WordPress, Tumblr does not support comments. Do not fret, there is a solution. You can install the Disqus comment system. Sign up for a free account and follow these instructions.

If you need more help with this please drop me an email or a tweet.
