The instructions for the class blog note that your posts must be “related to newspapers, magazines, writing, editing or journalism in some way. You could post something about news coverage, the magazine industry, grammar, law and ethics, multimedia, accuracy, useful sites, social media or career advice, for example. The topic is fairly broad.”
