Blog Assignment 12

For this blog post I want you to make a video about your favorite author. If you do not have a favorite author, pick the author of your favorite book. If you do not have a favorite book, I suggest you do a little bit of research and find an author that interests you. The video should be at least 1 minute or longer. You are to narrate the video. It can be about the author's life or about a series of books the author has written, as long as it is about that author and/or something he has written. After you finish the video upload it to YouTube then embed it into your blog. I want you to also write a short paragraph stating what author you chose and why.

For this project I chose to do my video on J.R.R. Tolkien. I chose Tolkien because I am a huge fan of Lord of the Rings books. I think the books are amazing. I also love that he created his own languages. I think that is really neat.


  1. Well done! I like the idea of a video on authors; I am going to be an English teacher after all! Tolkien is a very interesting one to do it on, and I would have liked to have heard even more. I also thought the music at the end was very fitting :)
