Please point to two passages from blogs in this course that you feel are particularly well written and briefly tell us what you admire about them. The passages should be between 25-100 words, come from different blogs, and illustrate different qualities of writing. Please quote from the blogs in your own post in addition to linking to them.
My aim is to celebrate the work people in this class have done as bloggers—but with a particular focus on prose style, on how the various writers in this class have gone about forming a distinctive voice for their blogs.
Please post your favorites by 9:00 am on Tuesday, 3/27. Use r8 as your category and tag your post with the first names of the bloggers you discuss. I’m eager to discuss the passages you choose in class next week!
