Posting Details

I have created a separate blog for your economic assignments run through wordpress.com.   This way you can set up your own account and manage your own passwords.

The site is econjournals.wordpress.com

Setting up your account, if you did not receive the email:

  1. Go to wordpress.com and create an account.  You do not need to create a blog, just a wordpress account.
  2. Email me your wordpress username and I will add you to the blog.
To add a blog post (assignments):
  1. Log-in to wordpress.com
  2. Click My Blogs
  3. Click Posts under Caution: Economics Students at Work
  4. Click Add New
  5. Enter your assignment information
  6. Add the correct categories and tags (category would be the assignment you are posting, tags would by your first name and any relevant key words)
  7. Publish your work
To add a blog post (journal post):
  1. Log-in to wordpress.com
  2. Click My Blogs
  3. Click Posts under  Caution: Economics Students at Work
  4. Click Add New
  5. Enter your Journal
  6. Add the correct categories and tags (category would be the journal prompt number you are responding to, tag would be your first name)
  7. Publish your Journal
I strongly recommend you write your journal in a word processing program first and then copy and paste it into wordpress.  This will allow you to take advantage of the grammar and spell checkers in Word as well as create a back-up of your journal just in case something happens to your post.
Feel free to add graphs, images and videos that support your ideas.  You must include links to support your ideas.
Blog Post Specifics:
Your journal needs to be categorized.  To the right of the screen, when you are in the new journal screen, you will see a section called categories.  Check off the box of the journal prompt you are responding to.
Your journal needs tags as well.  You can tag it with key words from your post if you wish.  You must tag it with your first name (include your last initial if someone in the class shares your first name).
