Mena Trott on Blogs


In the test posts in the coming weeks I look forward to hearing your opinions on blogs and hope that the use of a course blog allows us to grow as a community of writers.

To get a sense of the types of blogs I prefer to read, check out this TEDTalk. As an owner of a blog hosting service, Mena Trott has an interesting take on how she sees people using blogs to express themselves.

  1. Blogging is not for everybody, and not everybody reads the blogs, but it seems as though the people who make the blogs find them a central part of telling the stories of their lives. I appreciate how Mena candidly shares the heartfelt stories about people who use blogs to record day to day life–the ordinary and the extraordinary.
