A new year’s resolution I can keep, B³ : Be a Better Blogger 🙂
While catching up on some of my rss reads, I happened across a post, Life is One Big Top Ten, on Sue Water’s TAFE site . In it she mentioned Steve Dembo’s 30 Days to Be a Better Blogger. Ok I must admit I am a total geek, but it runs in my genes. How many people have a 88 year old grandfather that blogs? I have been totally ecstatic that our parish finally opened up a blog site! I have been waiting for years to have an interactive site for my students.
Since the unblocking (November ’08) of Edublogs, I have been focused on the integration aspect of blogging:
- Organization of blog pages
- Steps for students to earn blogs
- Trial runs with students
- Finding great widgets
- Daily Journal dilemma (keep old, use edublogs, revamp)
- and so on..
I hadn’t really focused on how my blog looks to the rest of the world. My students love it, so it has to be great, right? LOL Ok, maybe not:)
I am officially making a New Year’s Resolution to complete Steve Dembo‘s 30 Days to Be a Better Blogger. Wow! a resolution I can actually keep:) I didn’t even take a sneak peak at what was going to happen over the next 30 days of this journey. I have already completed day one which involved revamping my about page.
UPDATE: Great suggestion @suewaters, I am going to also work through the original challenge, 31 day challenge. From what I can tell, it won’t be too time consuming to complete both. It is also broken into two categories, so challenges are different for beginners vs. intermediate. Pretty cool!
