Progress report / research reflection: Post about which media you associate with your project, and the degree to which it is “webby” and reflects your own personality. Imagine the perfect library source to help you answer your research question, and link to it if you can. Imagine the perfect “look” for your final inquiry project, and embed a picture (or it didn’t happen).
