each person in my “personal narratives” class was assigned a role in the class based on our personal histories and the roles we’ve played in our lives up to this point. i was assigned the role of blog editor, which means i’m responsible for keeping my classmates engaged in discussion between classes.
there’s not an existing blog, so i’m wondering what the best platform is for this kind of thing. i actually think tumblr is the best designed of the popular, free, social media platforms right now. the interface makes it easy and fun to contribute with text, photo, and video from mobile or a computer. but i’m not sure how conversations would work on tumblr. i’ve been looking at a few different wordpress plugins for comments and forums, including one called muut.
