The Sunday Post (Part whatever week number we’re on)

So this week was interesting to say the least. Monday started me off blogging about something I cared about. Some friends and I started a tag project so that was pretty neat, if I must say so myself. It wasn’t a required task but I actually blogged for me and not a grade this time. It was a breath of fresh air. I tried to incorporate some of the things I’ve been learning in the class: embedding images, linking to sources, quoting outside articles, considering everything an experiment waiting to happen. Strangers really seemed to like it.

Then we got our book assignments to read through chapters 11-14 and type up a few posts. I made my first post how I would take lecture notes. I went through the text making comments here and there and highlighting important quotes i would find helpful later one. In then typed it all up in my own words. That was on chapter 11. Chapters 12 and 13 didn’t really trigger any responses from me. However, after reading chapter 14, something snapped. I’m a raging feminist at heart (maybe it’s because I have ovaries) as well as hater of those who feel dealing out judgement is entertaining. Call me a hypocrite if you want. That chapter gave me my idea for this week’s digital artifact which I worked on with Joe and Matt. Instead of making one giant post, we all found parts of chapter fourteen that interested us and then elaborated in our own ways. I touched on sexism and the blogging bourgeoisie that find it their duty to patrol our pingbacks. I talk about manhandling. You should read it.

Joe’s post was about pseudonyms. Did you know that J.K. Rowling specifically chose to have her name initialed to make her name more gender neutral? What twelve year-old boy is going to pick up a book by a Joanne Rowling?

Matt addressed the issue of ageism, however it wasn’t from the end of a young person but from the older generations. Interesting stuff. Make sure you check it out!

Also, check out this awesome work of online literature. It does a fantastic job of taking into consideration the future of blogging as well as the day to day worries of the prepubescent  learner or, in this case, lurker.

Next week is supposed to mark a change in pace so it will be interesting to see just which direction this class goes. I’ve learned how to keep up in my own way and now it’s going to mixed up all over again.
