Here is a list of things each blog should have:

  1. At least one short quote, citing the page/paragraph/section of the assigned reading.

  2. An explanation of the quote’s meaning in your own words and why it is relevant.

  3. An original example or practical application, either in your analysis of the reading or to demonstrate your own view.

  4. If there is a blog prompt, be sure to address the prompt.

  5. Blogs should be about half pure analysis of the reading and explanation of the philosopher’s most important point and half your own response/critique/evaluation/practical application.

Final blogs without these features are incomplete.
