If you’re an avid areavoices blog reader, you’ve no doubt noticed how prolific The Cobber Connection blog has been in the last few days. The reason is simple: it’s crunch time. To refresh your memory, this is a class blog for Broadcast News Writing students at Concordia. I am the teacher. For the past several months, I’ve asked the students to post topics on our blog to familiarize themselves with blogging. After all, many broadcast journalists will have to write a blog to coincide with their news stories. What the students delivered impressed me. Their posts ranged from the serious (sexual assaults on college campuses) to the sublime (challenging our thoughts about diversity on campus), from the celebratory (Holiday Lights Parade) to the silly (why one student is obssessed with teacup pigs).Â This blog will quiet down now as these students get their final grades and move on to other courses. But I hope other classes willÂ follow their lead and start blogging!Â It was fun hearing from them!
