What were your first impressions of this blog? This blog has a lot of color. Also, each individual blog has a good length of writing.
What captured your attention? The blog titles captured my attention the most. I can tell she likes music and people visit her blog because of her widgets.
What distracted you on the blog? The writing color was the same as the background color so it was hard to read.
What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog? Make the fonts of the titles larger so they stick out from the writing.

Auditing my blog

  • How many posts did you write? 37
  • How many were school based or your own interests? 18
  • How many comments did you receive from classmates, teachers or overseas students? 2
  • Which post received the most comments? Why do you think that happened? 'Blogs you should consider adding to your blog roll' and 'Biggest Hurdle'. I didn't comment back to keep the comments going.
  • Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why? 'What's on my mind', because I got to vent a little about what was on my mind.
  • Did you change blog themes at all and why? No, because I like the theme I have. My favorite color is blue, so I chose the one I have. No one has complained about the way it looks. I actually had one person say they liked the way it looked.
  • How many widgets do you have? Do you think this is too many or not enough? I have 4 widget in my blog. I think it's just the right amount because not enough would make my blog boring, but too many would make it look crowded.

Checking Facebook or Twitter?

How often do you check twitter and facebook or take a phone message? I always try to check my Facebook every night, but with sports and homework it's pretty hard. I don't have a Twitter so I never check it! I am constantly texting; morning, day and night. I can;t stand not having my phone. I would die without it.

I chose the categories: me, school, blogs, and blogging challenge because that's mainly what I write about.

'School' is all the things that my teacher doesn't title blog to it.

'Blogs' are all the things my teacher has us blog about that are titled 'Blog .....'.

'Me' is obviously about me.

'Blogging challenge' is obveously about the blogging challenges we have to do.

When to Use Real Photos of Yourself

When do you think it is appropriate for students to use real photos of themselves on their blogs and why? I think that students can use real photos of themselves on their blogs if the photo has more people than just them in it. That way someone who doesn't know you can't tell which person you are.

Writing, writing, and more writing

Now that you're writing the past 2 months, how do you think you've grown as a writer? I think I have grown by being able to express myself through my witing.
What difficulties do you face? Writing about something I'm not familiar with or don't like. Having a certain page/word number.
What do you think of your writing? I think my writing is good. I'm no expert, but when it comes to something I'm interested in, I do just fine.
What is something you're good at with writing? Writing stories and things about me.
What's something you struggle with? Explain. Writing things that don't interest me, like things other than basketball, volleyball, softball, me, and certain animals, because if I write about a something I'm familiar with, it won't take me as long to write it.

What's on my mind

There are a lot of things going through my mind right now, but one particular thing is DRAMA. People really know how to tick me off and push my buttons. I'm so fed up with everything that I don't even want to come to school anymore.
