-Discuss Renegade Mothering –What I love about this blog is that the author takes a REALLY common topic (I mean come on, could there BE anymore mothering blogs out there!?) and makes it very unique because of her style, honesty and perspective. The success of this blog is a testament to the importance of bringing something unique to the table. So you’re blogging about local restaurants? Video games? The local music scene? Cool…but it’s going to get lost in the commotion unless you give your readers a unique reason to visit every week. Come to class ready to talk about it.
