Welcome, Practical Writing students

Hello students and welcome to our blog!

A blog is a place where the author writes posts - like the one you are reading - and visitors leave comments. We will use this blog - (remember not to include www.) - to exchange ideas about writing and to do some tasks to better prepare you for your writing activities.

In order to comment, all you have to do is click the "# comments" link right after the post:

In the next window, you type your comment in the text window, proofread your message, sign your message and hit the "publish your comment button". If you use gmail or orkut, this means you already have a google account, so you can sign using "google/blogger" identity, but if you don't have a google account, you can choose the "name/url" identity and write your name before publishing your comment. Finally, if you want to receive the following comments on that post in your email, don't forget to check the "email follow-up comments to your email" before publishing:

Most important of all, don't be afraid! If you have any questions or make mistakes, I'm here to help you.

Actually, I really like this one better; it gives us a better insight into the person writing. There’s good background information with a personal touch with each expansion from the previous intro. Plus, I also agree with there others members –with their comments from the previous introduction-that pictures “put faces in the names” (Léo). The new one is very cute.

I’m not really a technology lover and therefore I’ve never really participated in online communities so I a little lost in how to interact. Yet some how from this introduction I get a feeling it will be okay either way and that might even start like this means of communicating. After all, I’ve been seeing internet, computers and other technologies just as utilities for a purpose and nothing else.

I’m looking forward to your complete introduction com Saturday.

Until then
