Any student in the UMass journalism program who has taken a class with me knows I’m a big believer in blogs.  Last year, students in the freshman seminar started up their own blogs.  If a student has a great idea or is travelling somewhere, I usually tell them to blog about it.

It’s nice to see such advice sink in.

Emily Grund, who will be entering her senior year this fall, not only blogged for my multimedia class last semester, but has been blogging about her internship experience this summer.  And,  recently she started a blog about ‘Joan.’ ‘Joan’ is the name that Emily has given her foot — which was broken earlier this summer in a freak accident.

Three different blogs.  Three different voices.  Good ways to work on your writing skills!
