  11. 11. Vigorous Writing <ul><li>“ Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.” (William Strunk, Jr. 1918) </li></ul>
  12. 12. Blogging <ul><li>“ For most academics blogs are irrelevant because they don’t count as publications” (Lovink, 2008). </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs are however “one of the future tools of academia” </li></ul><ul><li>Blogging is a genre of writing with its own demands” (Kirkup, 2010). </li></ul><ul><li>Learning resource/ tool: </li></ul><ul><li>http://raymonderickzvavanyange.blogspot.com . </li></ul>
  13. 13. Conclusion <ul><li>Communication is a non-end experience. </li></ul><ul><li>With better tools available, communicators must do a good job. </li></ul><ul><li>Go ahead and be agricultural communicators! </li></ul>
