Description

Tips and tricks for appropriate blogging.

 

Use only your first name in your posts—we want to be Internet safe and not give any identifying information about ourselves. Use standard American English---someone besides Mrs. Nayman is your audience! Use appropriate language; avoid slang or web jargon, such as “BFF” or “TTYL.”

Writing is a great way to “think aloud” on paper. Blogs allow us to see what our peers are thinking and writing---blogs are great for giving us insights or helping see a topic in a new light. Blogs encourage critical thinking. Blogs encourage everyone to have a voice in class discussions.

Enter your first name only. Enter your email. If you do not have one, use this one: [email_address] Do not fill in the third box “website.” Copy and paste your text from your Word document.

Copy and paste your text from your Word document.

Paste your text. Wait at least one minute---sometimes if you click on “submit” too quickly after text is entered, Wordpress thinks you are just typing “garbage.” Once you have pasted your text and waited 1 minute, click submit. Your post will not appear to the world right away—Mrs. Nayman moderates this blog and must approve your comment.
