‘Sup, blog readers! I’ve decided to become a better writer, and I’m polling for your suggestions.
First, I want to consume better writing — who are your favorite writers and notable wits? Who should I be learning from?
Second, I’m looking for feedback on my writing. Any favorites here?
This also means I strongly welcome your responses — either by comment or by email, I want to know what you think!
firstname.lastname@example.org to email me.
Additionally, it seems intriguing to me that I can’t find any info on writing classes that focus on blogging — MIT Media Lab? Harvard Berkman Center for Internet and Society? MIT you forefront-of-technology-you?
It seems like you could even teach a class that focused on writing for dissemination, to change public thought, e.g. Public Writing (we have public speaking, right?). Anyone know of anything similar to this?
And finally, quote of the day, by Mako:
“Stick to dashes — with a colon, or a semicolon, you might be wrong. Dashes are always grammatically correct.”
