Class Blogs and Student Blogs wanted!

Calling all bloggers.

  • Several months ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to join in a Blogging Challenge sponsored by Ms. Wyatt and Ms. Waters.  As with many things that I do, I jumped in head first.  By that I mean my kids had not gotten their laptops and I was entering a Blogging Challenge.  How crazy is that? Oh well, I tried.  What I did end up doing was creating a class blogpage that I have attempted to use for journal posting and commenting.  I say attempted because I have lots of posts and only a handful of responses.  I still have much work to do on the blogpage, but this time last year I did not have one.  It currently houses: Tweetsjournal/blogging topics, writing tips and variety of other things.
  • I decided to take smaller steps, so I developed a Ning, a private sharing community.  We have used it as a place to post and comment.  I post discussion forum topics and the class responds to my topics and they comment on other students’ posts.  I hope that we are ready for the real outside world because I am entering my class blog in the next Blogging Challenge to take place in March.

I am preparing myself and my class to be a part of this year’s Challenge.  So I intend to follow along with her schedule.Week One’s assignment is complete.  I have a blogpage established.  Check out the mention of our blog’s title: Blog, Blog Blog Blog, Blog Some More

“For example, Mrs Burton’s blog title Blog, blog blog blog, blog some more is very clever. ”

Week Two’s assignment is complete (although seeing the work that has been done lately, we need to revisit)

I am ready for next week’s assignment.  I hope :)For those of you who are unfamiliar with the challenge, here are some of the things that were covered.If you are brave and up for a Class Blogging Challenge, join us.
