So how about those student blog posts?

Six weeks ago, I started posting 80 blog posts from students in third-year class on resource economics at Simon Fraser University.

I had students write and comment on posts as a means of learning how to write and think in public. You may have noticed that some posts are not as good as others, but there's no way to avoid quality problems. The only things that get done are the things that get started...

So... please comment on this process and give general advice on how students can improve their posts.
