This week I was hit by the germ train unexpectedly. I suppose no one ever expects to get sick, but I don’t like stopping my busy schedule for something as inconvenient as an illness. I feel like we put some good content out at the beginning of this week and, thanks to my guest bloggers, posts kept going up as the week came to a close. Let’s take a look at what the blog covered this week.
On Monday, Christopher blogged about embarrassment that we might feel when friends find hidden guilty pleasures in our iTunes playlist. When Lucas sent his Thursday post in, he said that he was inspired to write his entry about cartoon animal movies when he read Christopher’s Monday post. I thought this was really neat, that one blog post could help inspire another.
Also on Monday, I tried to call some attention to the devastation and destruction that had taken place in Japan. Japan still needs money and supplies and humanitarian efforts, so if you’re interested in helping please check out the links in my post. We continued to discuss the new frontiers of literature in Tuesday’s post about self-destructing e-books and Wednesday’s Writing Excuses analysis, which talked about e-publishing.
On Friday, the faculty post from Dr. Michael Cunningham wrote a post about the recent movie Biutiful, starring Javier Bardem.
