Though blogging is sometimes dismissed as “disguised narcissism,” a well-written, analytical blog can do more to establish your expertise than internships and college transcripts. As technology entrepreneur Rand Fishkin has noted, “if you can start up a local blog about the independent hip-hop scene in Seattle or the financial side of the restaurant business or the intersection of immigration and entrepreneurship, you’ve got a far better shot at becoming a leader in your field.”
In this assignment, you will create and regularly update a blog related to computing, web development, graphic design, mobile gadgets (tablets and ultrabooks), or the rapidly changing global workplace. Badge details are posted on TLEARN. Because of the longitudinal nature of this assignment, you must start this blog project before April 1st if you choose to pursue this badge.
