Catching up with your blogs

I enjoyed reading what you’ve been writing today, and have sent you all brief emails. I do want to emphasize that if you’re not posting regularly on your beat (or even off your beat), then it affects the quality of your blog and will have an effect on your grade as well. It’s not enough just to write the assigned posts.

The final deadline for posting to your blog is next Tuesday, April 17.

Also: I don’t know of any respectable stylebook, including AP’s, that allows postal abbreviations for states. Yet I saw a lot of references to Washington, PA. According to AP style, it should be Washington, Pa. Remember, your AP Stylebook is your friend.
