Blogging Basics: Online Component

Hi folks! Today, you will be completing Blogging Basics Part Two, which requires you to get online and start looking at blogs.  Use my page, How to Blog, as a resource today.

Please turn in your handout before you leave class today.

Remember, we are meeting in the lab tomorrow and part of next week so you can create your blogs.

Have fun exploring!

Blogging Unit: Digital Citizenship

Daily Prompt #8: Senses Exploration

Practice utilizing all the five senses in your writing: see, hear, feel, taste, smell.  Write for five minutes describing this classroom and all the five senses you’re experiencing at this exact moment.

In this class, you will be creating a blog.

What is a blog?

a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.

Why have one?


After next week, you can officially call yourself a blogger!

But before you do, we need to talk about something very important: digital citizenship and your digital footprint.

Let’s brainstorm as a class what our rules should be when we are in the digital world.


Time to get the basics of blogging down.   You will be reading about how to blog effectively while completing a handout.  Feel free to discuss with your neighbors, but complete your own work. We will be going over the handout in class tomorrow.
