Blogging Links for DIGI… and posterity

I’m going to be giving a small talk to some students in the DIGI 110 course of our Media Studies Program at Malaspina University-College.

I’ve given a similar talk to students in the CMC 290 class as well. They also have an ongoing “blog on blogging“.

Here are some handy links to various blogging related things. I’ll probably add on to this as I come across more stuff.. but it’s a start.
