Create a blog journal using a CMS, including theme, title and URL. Adding blog posts incorporating text, images and multimedia. All steps are highly unique to your specific project, therefore problem-solving and critical thinking skills are necessary.
Please read the lecture notes, “Blogging,” and view LinkedIn Learning: “WordPress Essential Training” with Morten Rand-Hendriksen

Decide on a title and thematic topic for your blog. It could be on anything! Possible blog topics include (but are not limited to): travel journal, international recipe collection, sports news, clubbing photo-journal, original poetry collection, original photography or art gallery, political commentary journal, movie review journal, celebrity gossip journal, or many, many other possibilities.
Aim your blog at a mass audience. This will be a great project for all the journalism and PR majors in this class. And if you’re not in journalism or PR, this project will enable you to get an idea of what those majors entail.
