Rhetorical Analysis Thesis

Emily Matchar's "Why I can’t stop reading Mormon housewife blogs" effectively advocates the reading of Mormon blogs to people who may or may not have similar backgrounds or interests to those of the LDS (Mormon) religion by use of vivid imagery, heavy allusions, and various settings and perspectives in order for the reader to not only feel enamored with, but also logically put together the benefits of reading blogs that support a domestic lifestyle.


  1. This blog sounds very interesting as this seems to be an appeal to others of other faiths to read and connect with our members. I wonder does it ever actually talk about what we believe? Because through imagery, allusions and other rhetoric this type of blog could be used to achieve more understanding between nonmembers and members.

  2. I just started reading this blog just for the heck of it. It's a good one!

  3. The blog is very interesting! I actually decided to change the key rhetoric uses, though. It is no longer imagery and allusions. I switched it to something better! :)
