Feedback from Jess B, author of "Pop Culture Blogging"

The two questions response...Your strongest analytical work was in the post "Male Sexuality and Patriarchy in "The Deal." You picked a specific topic and clearly analyzed it.Throughout all your posts you chose quotes that accurately supported your analysis. You could use this strenght for your last post, by picking a specific topic from one of the episodes and then chosing quotes to back up your analysis.

Response to third question...~From the beginning you picked a clear topic. For readers who liked your topic, the could continue returning to your site to find new analysis on your specific topic.~You chose a topic that is interesting because it has been a major part of popular culture for many years.~You did a good job sticking to the topic of gender. All your posts were analysis of different aspects of gender throughout "Seinfeld," which kept the blog focused and interesting.~You did a good job making your posts analytical and finding readings to cite which assisted in the understanding of your argument. The only post I felt you didn't analyze quite enough was the one on "The Girls Next Door." You just brushed the surface of analying the show. If you had gone further into it, it would have been great.~The quotes you used very accurately support your arguments and you chose for a variety of readings, which was good. They helped to give you a broad range of topics on gender.

4th question response...~I thought it was great how you chose a variety of gender perspectives to analyze. It made your blog focused and interesting.~I found it a little confusing when you included actual conversations from the episodes because it was not always clear what it added to the post. Just make sure that it adds something to your topic.~You're really great at picking a topic for analysis and choosing readings that support your argument and provide understanding of it. It makes it easy for you readers to understand.~I wish you could focus on a new element of gender for your final post. If you picked a new reading to support it, I think your final post would be great. Your overall topic and different ways of analyzing it have been great. I think you have done a really good job on you blog.
