Workshopping can be a little nerve racking in the beginning of every semester because you don't really know everyone too well and for all I know someone can be like "think stinks." But really it's very helpful and all our classmates are nice and have great advice. My peers have seen so many ways to improve my work that I was pretty much blind to. So I give Workshopping two thumbs up.
When I found out we had to start a blog for class I was all for it. Doing homework through a blog is a fun way to go! I also like that I can read my peers blogs and learn a little something from them. But seriously less IS more because no one wants to read a novel on a blog.
