This event grew out of the January 2016 Blogging 101 course. Our final assignment was to develop a recurring blog feature—recipe, photo, or quip of the day, week, or month. A group of students decided that we wanted to refine our new features and continue learning from each other—so we started this event.
The event will run bi-weekly for three months, from February-April 2016. Participants submit their posts and vote for their favorites. Each competition will focus on a different aspect of the feature, with awards for:
Week 1 (posts due February 3): cleverest concept.
Week 2 (February 17): best overall concept. (i.e, How well does the feature fit with and enhance the focus of the blog?)
Week 3 (March 2): snappiest title and prose.
Week 4 (March 16): most striking images.
Week 5 (April 6): best looking.
Week 6 (April 20): best overall (combining concept, prose, and appearance).
The Finding Our Features Blogging 101 Extension Event has been moved to a private blog. Email me at 98AcresinAlbany@gmail.com (Subject: Finding Our Features), if you’d like to participate.
