Digital dive assignment for week 2

Your first digital dive assignment is due on Friday. These are less formal than the reading responses. You’ll post your responses in the Google+ Group.

This week is about getting you set up to follow blogs. RSS readers let you skim many blogs from one place, rather than going to each individual site. Set up (or another RSS reader—see this PopSci article for recommendations) and choose to follow 5 blogs that match the interests of your group blog topic.

Then answer:

What blogs strike you as well-designed and visually appealing? Why? What blogs strike you as well-informed and loaded with interesting, useful, or provocative content? Why? What blogs seem to have vibrant community participation (comments, backlinks, blogrolls, whatever)? Why?

Write a post on the Google+ group that answers these questions.
