Blog #8 - Typical Blog Pattern

In our book All the News, there are a few pointers on what is normally included in a typical blog:
  • A snappy headline that grabs the reader's attention
  • A lead summarizes a recent news report or other online posting and includes a link to that item
  • One or two paragraphs provide pertinent quotes from the item
  • One or two paragraphs offer comments from the blogger
  • A link connects to comments others have made on the blog entry

Group of Armed men attacking various people in Anne Arundel

Two men were robbed by a group of armed men in the parking lot of Arundel Mills Mall late Saturday night, Anne Arundel County police stated.

Two men were leaving the Golden Corral restaurant just after 11 p.m. and were approached by four to six men carrying handguns and demanded money, said police. The suspicious men fled the scene after taking money from one man's pocket and the other man's wallet.

On Oct. 8, two men attacked a woman leaving a Wal-Mart store near the mall. The men put her in a headlock and rifled through her pockets before leaving the scene in a dark-colored sport utility vehicle.

Neither of the suspects have been declared as the same group of men and police have not made any arrests in either attack.

Katelyn,
You've posted what makes a good blog, now use those ideas. Create more interesting headlines and don't be afraid to include your own comments when talking about a news story.
