When you say blog about something, what is expected?
Some thoughtful comments for sure but exactly what you should write or how long your entry should be can vary. A blog post saying “it was interesting” and nothing else is not enough. A blog entry that goes on for hundreds of words is too much. Answer one of these sample questions if you’re stumped for what to write:
How would you use this at work or why wouldn’t you use this at work?
What would you say to someone else to convince them to use this?
How would you explain to a customer what this is about and what to use it for?
Web 2.0 tasks often inspire things the originals designers never thought of, like shared online spreadsheets to keep track of Little League schedules. What is your idea for something new connected to this task?
What would you suggest as an improvement to make it faster, easier, more useful, etc.?
