(musTh2) Assignment A: Create a WordPress Account and Comment

Due Wednesday, 1/20:

  1. Create a WordPress account (if you do not already have one)
  2. Comment on this post (whether you have a pre-existing account or not). MAKE SURE YOU COMMENT ON THIS POST. If you’ve navigated directly to this post, the comment section is below the post. If you are viewing this post from the home page of the blog, click on the post title and scroll down.

This assignment is worth actual homework points, which seems to be the only sure way to get students to sign up and participate.

You can navigate directly to http://en.wordpress.com/signup/ and follow the onscreen instructions. You don’t need to create your own blog; you just need an account to post comments to my blog. Unless you have the strong desire, time, and something to say that others want to read, I’d strongly recommend just requesting a username.

I have never received spam from WordPress to my email account, so this procedure is relatively risk-free. I require people to have a WordPress account to post comments to my blog to cut down on incoming spam to the blog.

Comments to the blog are an excellent way to share questions that may be of interest to the class as a whole – particularly about assignments. All students can see the question and any answer provided. If you do not wish to share a question publicly you can always email me.

I’ll post some instructional videos very shortly to help people with how to best use and navigate the blog.
