Create your course blog

Speaking of Bicycles is a public speaking course, but we’ll write a lot.

All of your writing for this course will be posted to a blog you’ll create. There will be specific guidelines for some posts, and other posts will be “open” — you can decide what to write about and how to approach it.

Posts are graded as complete or incomplete — if you make a good faith effort, you will get full credit.

You can find instructions on Canvas here:

Frequently Asked Questions

What about my privacy? I don’t want the whole world to see my stuff.

Great question. When you create your blog, you’ll be able to choose the level of access granted to users. A good middle ground is to allow the USF community to see your site, but not the whole world. See image below.

Does spelling count?


Must I use MLA format?


What if I hate the internet?

I validate. I’m happy to work with you to come up with a good alternative.
