Starting your blog

As we talked about today, here is some stuff to keep you busy:
  • Sign up for a google account and start a blog at that you can use for your posting this semester. Send me the link to your blog when it is up and running, and be sure to pick a great name.
  • Write an introductory post for your blog. What is its purpose, what will you use it for, who is your audience, etc.
  • Look into the work that Randy Olson has done in science communication. He has his own web site, videos on You Tube, and various writing about science communication spread across the web.
  • Set up a Google Reader account and start subscribing to blogs that interest you. This is a great way to scout out some ideas for your own posts.
That will be good for now. I will be looking out for your progress and will comment along the way.
