Blogging as a tool

One of the points raised this week at UT's Symposium on Online Journalism was whether blogs were really anything more than just a web publishing tool. After all, they're used for so many different things in so many different way that what defines a blog is getting looser and looser. I tend to agree with this statement and would like to share one way in which I use blogging as a tool. For my Women in the News class, my group will be posting our criteria, research and final conclusions in a blog in addition to taking in the comments and feedback of others, and communicating amongst ourselves. The blog format allows us to all publish, and all be able to access the information 24 hours a day. You can watch our project, focusing on the concept of modern feminism through the eyes of Cosmopolitan and Bust magazines, here. You can also view a past project on the gentrification of East Austin that I have also run through a blog here.

I'll try to remember to check this blog out a few times before the semester is out.

It looks like a great way to use the blog--as a collaborative workspace that enables iterative activity!
