Do you have a favorite blog? One that’s safe for kids and school appropriate? In your comment, offer a link to your favorite blog and explain why you like it.
To do this assignment, you may need to know the difference between a blog and other kinds of websites. Here’s a link to Wikipedia’s page about blogs and blogging. Read up on blogs before you make your comment.
Here’s a sample comment for this journal question. Yours should look something like this:
Now and then, I like to visit a blog called The Story Siren. The author of this blog is a teenage girl who reads a lot of YA books and then gives her opinion of them. She tells you what she likes about good books and what she doesn’t like about the books she disses. Here’s a link to her blog: http://www.thestorysiren.com/
Now, can you write a review of your favorite blog, along those same lines? Remember to explain what you like about the blog. Every sentence you write is worth one point, and your link is worth a point too (if it works). If you offer a link to a website that’s not school-appropriate, your comment will be deleted, and you won’t receive credit. Only offer one link per entry please.
