Before you start, please read my blog notes below.
Please check out the following five sites, plus one of your own choosing. For each, BRIEFLY answer the following three questions:
1. Is this a blog? If so, why? If not, why not? (Explain concisely, considering the following: Is it updated regularly, and from the top down? Does it link to reader comments and questions (making it participatory)? Does it link to other stories on the topic? Is it creating a geographic or nongeographic community? Is it written with attitude and edge?)
2. Would you look at this site again if you didn’t have to?
3. How could it be improved?
Please type up your answers in a Word doc and e-mail them to me by Friday, Nov. 24, at 1 p.m.

PLUS a sixth blog of your choosing.
