Today you will be setting up a WordPress blog for the independent work in non-fiction and East of Eden. This blog could serve as a digital portfolio of your work. It should be something that you can carry with you after your time here at Mayo.
First read this excellent blog post about the logistics of setting up your blog and some safety issues. Yes, I know you are not tiny children. But you still should be careful. If you find yourself wondering, “Should I post this”, then you probably shouldn’t.
Next, create a WordPress account and set up your blog. When you get to that step, add your blog address to the top post in Classroom. I will collect and link them on the tab at the top of my blog.
The four categories that you need are: East of Eden, Nonfiction book, Short nonfiction, Documentary film. Use tabs and/or tags for this.
