Because it’s the 55th anniversary of Rosa Parks.
In the movie, Potter dies.
You’re welcome, Foley!

THIS IS THE THIRD ASSIGNMENT IN A ROW THAT BLACKBOARD HAS NOT ACCEPTED. THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS.

However, I would not want to imitate it because it draws a lot from interviews. I don’t have time to do interviews (not enough to be published, anyway) and I don’t really want the majority of my article to be interviews.

The headings are huge, the vocabulary is easy, and doesn’t come across as super intelligent. Also, this URL is ridiculous. f=9659883&svc.fulltext=yes&svc_val_fmt=info:ofi/fmt:kev:mtx:sch_svc

It’s pretty much about a kid who reassures his sexual identity through Harry Potter. What I would like to imitate is the intelligence of this article and the thought-provoking subject matter.
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/mar.20343/full This article is awesome because it has at least two references for pretty much every sentence. That gets kind of tedious after a while, but I want to imitate how much evidence it has.
What I like about this article is that the subject matter is super engaging. It doesn’t push away its readers by sounding pretentious. The only thing I don’t like is the references in the sidebar. It’s distracting.
Topic: You should read Harry Potter because Hermione is in favor of social activism and it’s important to be exposed to other viewpoints concerning politics.
Blogs I would like to imitate:
Harry Potter Alliance (http://thehpalliance.org/) I don’t particularly like that they are using HP for politics. However, I think getting kids to care about politics is great. I like that they make everything (e.g. information about politics) so accessible.
An Unrepentant Communist (http://unrepentantcommunist.blogspot.com/) I like this person’s use of pictures and videos to supplement his/her posts. It’s a little wordy for me, but I like it otherwise.
The Red Phoenix (http://theredphoenix.wordpress.com/) Lots of big pictures, lots of color, and a reference to Dumbledore’s pet. What more could you want?
Red Side-A Socialist Blog (http://www.redside.hostzi.com/b2evolution/blogs/index.php) I particularly like this blog because it’s super informative and super easy to read. I want my blog to be like that except snarkier.
David Osler’s Blog (http://www.davidosler.com/) Osler is a British journalist. He’s clever and quick. Done.
Blogs I do not want to imitate:
Lenin’s Tomb (http://leninology.blogspot.com/) Despite the legit name, the blog is BORING!! Lots of words and one person’s opinion. No pictures. Awful.
Christian Blog (http://www.christianblog.com/) Too many posts and not enough information.
A Religious Liberal Blog (http://religiousliberal.blogspot.com/) First of all, oxymoron. Second of all, no one wants to read your lessons from church. That’s what the Bible is for.
So I hated the first version of my essay and my grade certainly reflected that. Needless to say, I wasn’t very happy about it. I complained about it to Foley and she suggested that I make an appointment to meet with her so we could talk about it. We met up on Thursday and it was probably the best thing I could have done for this paper. Experts say that one of the better ways you can start a paper is by talking about it, working out the details, having someone play devil’s advocate to your topic. Foley is such a great resource! I don’t know if anyone else has gone to talk to her about their papers before, but if you haven’t, I would definitely suggest it for paper 3. Don’t be scared. She doesn’t bite. Unless provoked.
Have you seen UT’s homepage? It’s like they know what your topic is or something. I would make sure you’re not being followed or stalked. Just throwing that out there.
I missed getting to see your handsome face yesterday.
