  1. Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?

    you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website
    is great, let alone the content!

    • Thanks! I’ve been doing this for a few years now, and have actually hosted (or helped run) workshops on blogging. Of course, I can’t take all the credit – I’ve had some pretty awesome students who have made great contributions to the material on this blog!

  2. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
    this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Awesome blog!

    • Thanks for the suggestions! Now, the reasons why we might not be as image/video heavy…and what I might do to improve it…
      1) Students write a lot of the longer blogs. Some of them are really good at finding visual material to go along with their writing, some are not.
      – That can be an easy fix, though. I’ll just require students to find pictures and videos for their future assignments!

      2) I run this as a professional/academic blog, which means I also use it to teach students about the proper use of proprietary material when on the web…which means I have to pay more attention to things like copyright rules than a regular blogger. I can use my own images or opensource materials – otherwise, I need to be really careful about citations.
      – Not so easy of a fix. I’ll do my best to add visuals whenever I have the chance!
