You’ll wrap up your blogging for the semester with a final, reflective blog post. The premise of this last post is simple: rather than blogging about our primary or secondary sources, you’re going to blog about your own blogging.
Begin by reading all of your posts (you can see all your posts by logging into the dashboard, or by clicking your username on any of your blog posts). As you reread your posts, take notes, and notice what you noticed in your earlier posts. Also be sure to look at your comments, if you’ve left comments on the blog.
Compose a short analysis and reflection of your posts. Some questions to consider in your post might include: What do you usually write about in your posts? Are there broad themes or specific concerns that reoccur in your writing? Has the nature of your posts changed in the past fifteen weeks? What changes do you notice, and how might you account for those changes? What surprised you as you reread your work? What ideas or threads in your posts do you see as worth revisiting? What else do you notice?
I encourage you to quote yourself in your reflection and link back to earlier posts! This final reflective post must be on the course blog and categorized as the Reflective Post by Friday, May 1.
