2. The summary of the missing items on your blog are in a Doc Status of Blog Requirements Checked in Mandatory Class. As you complete the assignments edit the Doc. Edit ONLY the information about YOUR Blog.
3. Maybe this will make it a bit easier for you to complete the missing items. When using these instructions remember that you can ususally get a larger version of any image in a blog just by clicking on it.

You can always go to the Lab for help. The Lab Assistants will NOT do your work for you but they will help you figure out what you are doing wrong by asking a lot of questions or even demonstrating how to do it and then letting you do it yourself. That is the ONLY way you will learn to do it.

4. If you have not read the post that is immediately below this one (Inappropriate C4K Comment), do so now. In addition, two posts will appear soon about inappropriate C4T comments. Read them when they appear.
