Write an A-Z about yourself (e.g. I am an athletic and brave child who decided that saving the environment is one of my future goals). Check out how commenter Dinah created her A-Z About page especially for the Student Blogging Challenge a few years back.
Zaprina made a creative About post that’s an acronym of her own name. It includes paragraphs and coloured text.
Huzzah! class included a map to show where they live.
Student Rajyashori wrote a creative interview script.
Year 5/6 Class at Westwood with Iford School made a Thinglink.
If you prefer a traditional style of writing, that’s fine too. Be sure to use paragraphs like in these examples from Grace and Madison.
Task 2: Visit other blogs
Start making connections!
One important aspect of blogging is commenting on other blogs.
Remember: The more you put in to making connections during this challenge, the more you’ll get out!
This is where you can find other participants’ blogs to visit:
Here is a page for student bloggers. These are sorted by age. Student bloggers have hobbies listed so you hopefully can find someone who is not only a similar age to you but shares some of your interests.
💡 Idea: You might even like to write a post about your commenting experiences like 7th grader Cashton did for the last challenge. He even included the links in his post.
We’re going to talk more about quality commenting next week but for now, you might want to remember:
Write your comment like a letter
Ask a question, make a connection, or give a compliment
Leave your blog URL so the blogger can also take a look at your blog
Don’t forget to approve your comments and politely reply to any comments as soon as you can!
