Welcome to our 1109.01 class blog!

Welcome to our class Blog!

Hello students and welcome to our blog.  Today, let's work to get everyone on the blog and learn how to use its features.

Our address is but the simple way to find the blog is to either bookmark it or just go to when you are signed into your Gmail and it will show you the blogs you belong to.

The first thing you must do is get a Gmail account.  Then, using that Gmail address, please write to me at and I will invite you to the blog.   You must accept the invite and follow the steps in order to use the blog.  Let’s do this in class.

Once you are a member, you will see your Gmail address appear in the upper right hand corner, and only then can you post to the blog.

--To do a New Post, you must again find that link in the upper right hand corner.  Click New Post and a window will appear to let you compose.

Please title all your writings, and use a username that is either your name or nickname so we know who is writing.  Only class members will be on this blog.

For your first post, write one paragraph where you introduce yourself and some things about you, including your Fun Fact or something unique.  That way we can always have this on the blog as a way of knowing and remembering each other. 

In your next paragraph, share your favorite Buckeye story.  I think it's important to recognize our influences and those who came before us, so tell us about your favorite Buckeye and what this person means to you.

Finish by posting either a picture of your favorite Buckeye or of yourself to the blog.  Let's learn to use images with our posts, and it is both fast and easy to do.

 Good luck, have fun, and just let me know when you need help!  This first day is all about getting comfortable with the blog, and for some of you, this will take time.

All best,
Mike Lohre

P.S. If ever you don't finish an assignment on here, or if you just want to revise, sign into the blog and then go back to the pencil icon on your post.  If you click it, it will take you right back into your writing, and you can update, add, subtract, and edit easily. 

This is my wife Irene, who was originally born in the Phillipines before moving to the States.  Also pictured are two friends from China as I run a summer program at OSU for Chinese students and Irene often helps me during the summer.
To remind you my fun fact was that I like to ride motorcycles and I once rode in Australia and Asia! 
Hope you guys enjoy using this blog and find it easy to do once you get used to it.
