You will create a blog on a professional topic of interest in business/managerial communication

You will create a blog on a professional topic of interest in business/managerial communication, contemporary workplace, business/managerial ethics, or related issues, using a freely available platform of your choice. The topic should be pre-approved, and I invite you to discuss your progress or challenges with me at any stage of your project. You will post one introductory post first and then three entries dedicated to one important issue each related to that general topic. The introductory post (50 words) should situate the topic, discuss its relevance and significance, and then explain what you wish to explore/offer on the posts (500 words each) that follow. The purpose of this assignment is to help you develop as a thought leader on a topic of your interest and communicate your evolving expertise to a diverse audience effectively. Your blog should be aesthetically appealing and look/read/sound authentic and professional. Like some of the professional blog pages you will first browse, your page also should have an “about” section with a brief bio and pic, easily navigable menu, and a strategic blending of text and visuals. Make sure you give yourself enough time to research, plan, and compose your blog posts.

How to Do It?

i) First, check out a short introductory video and then Blogging Basics 101 for detailed instruction on how to set up a blog. A blog page is not a website although they share some features. You should use one of the free platforms for your blog (unless you have a reason to have a more sophisticated website) listed on Blogging Basics 101 such as Google Blogger or WordPress.

ii) Research professional blog pages by experts or leaders in your area of interest (professors, industry leaders, business managers or PR professionals); pick a favorite one for a close analysis and find a second one of a company/organization of your choice (blog may sometimes be embedded in or added to the home page). Analyze what makes them effective in terms of design, text, coverage, visuals, tone, credibility, etc. and write a post. Some blog pages that students in the past have visited included: Bill Gates, Bob Sutton, Bovee and Thill, Peter Cardon. I encourage you to find other blog pages in your area of interest to analyze and research to plan your own blog more strategically.

iii) As you analyze blogs for the post above, research and develop ideas/topics for your own blog. You will next compose a short post (50 words) stating your topic and rationale (why are you blogging about it and why does the world need one more blog about the topic?). You will post it along with a link to your blog page once you create it. Consult Blogging Basics Links to an external site.to create your blog page and post the link below.

iv) Post your representative image, short bio (about me), and introductory post (which can be developed from your topic memo).

v) Post your major entries next (October 31, November 7, and November 9).

Evaluation Criteria

Note that a good blog(post), like any good piece of writing, is more than the sum total of its individual parts. Effective posts will possess the following elements, not as separate entities but as elements of a carefully designed and produced text (or a series of posts). Your blog should inform and persuade your audience to take a certain action or think about the issues in certain ways. However, blogs are not meant to be strictly formal. Good blogs are often somewhere in the middle of a formal-conversational spectrum.

But other sources can be used as well if they are on the topic.

However personal information is needed for this assignment.
I am Edgar Kyurkchyan, I am 18 years old, I am all for learning new things and you have permission to make up things that would make me look more professional on the blog, only believable things, nothing too outrageous.
