Class Procedures and Reminders
Blog drafts. Both Blogger and WordPress have a "save as draft" option, and I would encourage you to use that option if you start a blog post but do not have time to finish it. Then your "drafts" folder can be a "to-do" list, reminding you of the post you need to finish
Project Stack. I'm still working my way through the HUGE stack of Project assignments. If you want to check to make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack. If you turned in your assignment on Friday or Saturday morning, you should have comments back from me. If you turned in something after noon on Saturday, it is probably still in the stack. Please wait on my comments before you go on to the next Project assignment; I'll keep working through the stack in the order that the assignments were turned in!
