Hi! Welcome to our class’s first Blog Council!
Great work this week exploring other blogs and delving deeper into Business, Government, & Society topics that interest you. We really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts and comments.
We’ve compiled a list of of ways we can improve our blog, as well as positive feedback and “shining star” examples. Please use this as a launching point for expanding upon your blogging skills for the future!
Here are ways in which we can improve our blog:
Use clear paragraph breaks (and use them often)!
- Long, drawn-out paragraphs make a blog post look less “clean” and concise.
Read through your blog post before publishing it!
- Use spell check and grammar.
There is no need to say “blog #” within the title.
Embed URLs in the text.
Use comments to engage in conversation!
- Don’t be afraid to express your opinion or disagree with somebody. As long as you are respectful about it, this is what ignites meaningful discussions.
Relate back to previous authors/readings that we have discussed in class.
- Use the hyperlink tool to reference other online sources.
And The Shining Star Awards Go To…
Most Comments: The World’s First ‘Ethical’ Smartphone… (Rachel G.)
Best Use of Media: The Ethics in Risk Taking (Marty)
Best Imagery: Circular Economy & Sustainability (Lauren)
Most Insightful: Wanting to be Accountable (Don)
Exemplary Blog Posts:

How did you find your blog post?
Almost every blog had a at least a partially positive message. Does this suggest optimism for corporate responsibility and ethics?
Utilize the stars to vote for the best blog of the week!
