Blog Post #5 (free choice!)

Hi folks!

Today is a day to work on your blogs as well as read your peers’ blogs and post comments.

Remember that you have to post on your blog at least once a week for credit. Be sure to publish something by midnight Sunday.

IMPORTANT: since you have a full week to post something on your blog, blog posts cannot be completed as late work after the due date. Be sure to plan accordingly.

This week’s theme is free choice. Consider typing one of your writer’s notebook entries and sharing what the prompt was. You do not have to include an image this week (although it’s always encouraged).

Have fun and use your time wisely. Once you post something, you should read and comment on your peers’ work.

Whatever you don’t finish is due by midnight Sunday tonight. I look forward to reading them!
