I have just gone over everyone's blog to see who is keeping up and who is not. After this review, I do have a few concerns. Some people are doing a great job of writing detailed entries, but many are not keeping up with the blog. Also, there is only one substantial comment from anyone who is not Lauren or me. Remember that you must comment on each other's entries to earn a higher grade for this part of the course. But that's in addition to keeping up with the required blog postings.
So, I have kept track of who has done what postings up to today, the conclusion of Blankets. Don't go back and write entries after the fact, but do keep up with all entries from now on. In terms of comments, it doesn't make a lot of sense to go back and post comments on entries about the essays, but you still have time to comment on entries about Fun Home and Blankets.
Here's the deal. I will allow everyone to comment on entries about Fun Home and Blankets up to the time the second essay is due. After that, there's not a whole lot of point to commenting when we have moved on. But if you want to raise your grade for this part of the course, then start making comments. No one will be able to earn an A for this part of the course without keeping up with the required blog entries and making comments on the blog entries of others.
Some people are writing some great entries, and it would benefit everyone to keep up with them.
