Challenge 2 should be completed by Friday, September 30. If you are able to, work on your blogs from home. Keep up on commenting and visiting other student blogs.
Please take the time to visit these blogs and look at the posts I’ve decided to include in Honourable Mentions I.
I’ll be posting a checklist in the classroom so you can see where you are in completing the various challenges and other activities. Please make sure you keep up with your blogging. Timeliness is a very important part of being a good blogger.
HONOURABLE MENTIONS 1
Chelsea has completed Challenge 2 and has done a great job at each of the three post activities. She combined all three into one post, which is a great idea. You can also complete each post activity one at a time. Visit Chelea’s Blog to have a look at her responses.
Lauren also combined the 3 post activities into one post. She didn’t forget to include a link back to the Challenge site as well. Here’s Lauren’s Challenge 2 post.
Debra has added a lot to her blog already. As a new blogger, she is obviously getting the hang of blogging. She’s already added lots of posts to her blog. Here’s an extra post Debra wrote that you should have a look at. It’s always great to add your own posts to your blog, besides the assignments and challenge posts I ask you to add. The more you add to your blog, the more readers you’ll attract and keep coming back.
Dylan has also added a lot to his blog as well. He has already uploaded his Biography and Podcast Interview on Keith Urban to his blog. Here is a link to Dylan’s podcast.
Emma posted her podcast interview. I like how she added a brief introduction about who her interview is with, as well as giving credit to who the other person was in her interview. Here’s Emma’s interview (with Jared).
Hannah uploaded her Biography and included her Podcast interview in the same post. She did a wonderful job! Click here to read her biography and listen to her interview.
Have a look at Jared‘s post on Challenge 2. He begins by explaining the activities he had to do, and embedded a link right to the Challenge on the Challenge Site. This way, Ms. Wyatt knows right away when he’s posted his activity. It’s very important that you do this for every post you do (even if there’s more than one post per challenge. Here is Jared’s latest post.
Laura did a great job at including a link at the end of one of the activities for Challenge 2. She had a well written, well organized post as well. Here’s a post Laura wrote on Attractions in different U.S. States.
Jeremy has done an amazing job desinging his blog background. We’re going to have to have him teach the class how to do what he did. Jeremy writes extra posts on his blog. Here’s a post he wrote called “Why I Love Star Wars.”
Matthew has written a very informative Biography on Steve Jobs. He included his podcast interview at the end of his post. Click here to read his biography and listen to the interview.
Simone‘s post on Challenge 2, Activity 3 was outstanding. She added LOTS of detail to her post, and included pictures as well. It’s always great to add relevant pictures to your posts because it makes the reading exprience more enjoyable for your readers. Simone also embedded the link to the image source in her picture. Here’s Simone’s post.
Keep up the great work, everyone!
