Peer Review 2

I once again have the pleasure of reviewing the ever elegant Anne Lauren Co webpage. Olivia has continued to work through the PUB 201 course with eloquence; her process posts are insightful and showcase genuine consideration for her professional image, while her blog story captures the moving family narrative behind her jewelry business. The content is…

201 Process Post #6

Give the people what they want! And the truth of the matter, is that people don’t really want me. I mean, I don’t blame them, I’m just some nobody who’s written a few joke articles- hardly worth their precious time. But, there are a lot of people who say things with far more eloquence and…

Wanna hear a story? Well I guess I’ve put all my eggs in the “power of humor” basket. This is the era of what-are-you-selling and am-I-looking-to-buy before we trade first names. Maybe I’m young, maybe it’s always been this way. I’m doubting that. Authors pine for credible back cover blurbs, while big fish companies are…

Wait a second, I thought you were running a food blog. What happened here? Well, let me tell you a thing or two about The Dirt Mouth. She found her hands unable to write recipes when the news was doing nothing more than turning her stomach. She’s always had a thing for wit, and poetry,…

Anne Lauren Co is Olivia’s jewelry website. Immediately, you are shown a beautiful spanning background of pastel clouds over an ocean front.

What about the money? The people? I think that you need to have an intimate knowledge of what you’re actually doing before you can start considering making money doing it. I don’t mean to say that you should be an expert on woodworking before you start selling birdhouses, more so, I think you need to…

Do you want to be a star? I’m finding that this is the question of week one of PUB 201: Publication of the Professional Self. So what does it mean to have a professional self? I think I’ve always found this concept a little weird, mostly because the “professional” people I truly respect don’t go…

Peer Review #3

Upon first reading the opening page to Camoflauged Citizen, I am immediately reminded of James Hamblin’s, How to Talk to Strangers, because that seems to be the very wall CJ intends to break down while in his site. The audience targeted for this site is very general. Reading this blog would be like getting to know someone, because…
