Check out my links for the new batch of bloggers in the "Don't Believe the Hype": Reading and Writing about Popular Culture learning community... Spring '10 version. Most of the links seem to work. Should be several more added soon.
LCers, go ahead and use your blog to write about whatever (keep subject matter appropriate while the semester's in progress, please). We'll also have official blog assignments we'll all do. Here's the first one: take any idea you talk about in your first essay (your popular culture autobiography) and tell a story about it--something that really happened. For example, if you say you like watching football on TV, tell a story about a particular time you were watching football. Try to be as detailed as you can. The idea is to practice going into more detail when giving examples.
