A learning adventure exploring alternative forms of blogging
This course is a group odyssey around a simple question: how can we expand upon blogging as a medium?
Blogging dead, long live blogging!
The course is structured like a giant ongoing discussion made through blog posts. Each week there will be a prompt post which will include some questions and resources to riff off of. They can be found in the blogchain towards the bottom.
When writing, simply add a link to this post at the beginning/end so others can join in. You could do something like this:
Part of the Blogging Futures course blogchain. Feel free to join!
Once your post is published, you will want to add it to the blogchain so others can read and participate in the developing conversation. You can add your post to the blogchain through this form:
(If the app is ever down, just respond with a link to your post on this thread and I will make sure to add your post to the chain!)
Once submitted, your post will appear below. You are not limited to a number of posts per week, so feel free to write as much as possible. Since the goal is to have a developing conversation across posts, linking to others in the thread and responding to their thoughts is encouraged.
