  • Adding your introduction
    Write a two-three paragraph introduction about yourself. Tell us why you are taking the class, if you have any hobbies, what you do for a living, etc. You are not required to reveal any personal information – just tell us a few interesting things about yourself. Check out Nicole’s introduction for an example.
  • Because of authorization issues, you will not be able to post your introduction directly to the blog.
    Instead, email your introduction to Nicole at mcclure.nicole@gmail.com. You can either include this in the body of the email or attach a separate word document.
    Also, include one or two photos of yourself that you would like to include with your post.
