Last week was a lot of hit and miss with various absences and not-quite-readies on the Instagram presentations. So we’ll begin again on collecting and archiving this week. However, I will be out of town on Monday, so you’ll find a one-day assignment that should be manageable.
Monday – Blog review. Browse blogs. You may have already found a few you are interested in enough to follow. If so, that’s great. If not, search for one today, but don’t spend too much time in the search. Write a review of the blog as a post on your own blog. Describe the blog’s topic, its approach to its audience, its appearance and anything else you find appealing. Talk specifically about the blogger and his/her choice of subjects and voice. What draws you in and makes you want to come back? Provide a link to this blog in your post.
Tuesday-Friday – Collect articles that pertain to your passion topic. You may favorite in Twitter, pin in Pinterest, tag in Delicious or just copy and paste the URL for each article to a document. Once you have a good collection, you’ll be ready to archive your collection for sharing.
