How to Post Your Assignments

When you post your assignments to the blog, this is where you will do it!

How, you might ask?

When you log into the course blog, you will see a plus sign (+) at the top of the page with the word “New” next to it. Click that to make a new post.

Then, it should lead you to a screen like this:

Screenshot of the posting page on a logged-in WordPress account, highlighting the bottom right corner where you can select what category to put your post in.

The image is unfortunately blurry, but the red arrow and circle are hopefully helpful: when you’re adding a new post, in the bottom right side of the page, there should be a selection menu called “Categories.” Check the box that says “Assignments”, and your post will appear in the right place!

Please feel free to let me know if you have questions about this process.

How Do I Start Blogging?

An age-old question, and a good one!

First and foremost, we’ll be spending our Wednesday class sessions in the computer lab, so hopefully that kind of collaborative experience will be helpful for all of us.

Most importantly, if you don’t have steady access to internet outside of school, let me know as soon as you can so that I can make sure you get what you need to fully engage with your classmates and assignments through our course blog.

We’ll spend a bit of our time in the computer lab helping each other through the mechanics of blogging. But, for those moments when you’re at home or on the train thinking, ‘how do I do this thing on the course blog?’, here’s a Blog-Start-Up-Kit for you. Of course, if you have questions that this doc doesn’t address, and google also fails you (it happens!), let me know and we can work it out together.

Should you have any concerns about your privacy, you can choose a username that is not, in fact, your name; you can password-protect your posts; and you can always chat with me about any additional concerns you might have so we can find the best way to make this course blog a positive experience for you.
