RULES FOR BEST BLOGGING PRACTICES
Required elements for every blog: Your first name only and the block number at the end of your first name i.e. John1 *Note: if there are more than one of the same name, use your first name, first initial of your last name, and block number as your name.
THERE WILL BE NO SHORT HAND OR TEXT MESSAGE RESPONSES; EVERYTHING MUST BE WRITTEN IN COMPLETE SENTENCES UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED. Responses not adhering to these guidelines will not be posted and you will not receive a grade. It is YOUR responsibility to post on your own time and in the proper manner.
Consider this – you have a Myspace page, a Facebook page, and a blog on the web. Who all has access to view these? Do you think that everything you post is truly private? Do you think that colleges and potential employers will ever come across these pictures and postings that you write? They do! Some even INTENTIONALLY go to find your Myspace and Facebook pages. You carry an online persona just like you carry your own personal identity. http://www.boston.com/jobs/news/articles/2007/02/25/your_past_is_lurking_online/
