If you look on the right sidebar, you will see a map of the world with lots of red dots on it. This is called a Clustrmap and shows us where people live who are coming to our blog to read our posts. So far we have people from USA, Canada, Australia, Italy, England and Portugal. I wonder if any of these people have also been to your blog?
Do you want to add one of these to your sidebar in a text box?
Well follow the instructions at Sue Waters very helpful blog called “The Edublogger.” If you get stuck, there are some students in my class who have added one to their blog or come to the grade 6/7 computer lab on the days Miss Wyatt is running lunchtime blogging sessions and she will help you.
Every year, a new map is started, but your old map will be archived. Here is the archive map for Miss Wyatt’s class blog from last year. Notice they had over 19,000 visitors. How can you get more people to visit your blog?
One way to start is to have a blogroll on your sidebar with the links to your favourite blogs. Include more than just the people in our grade 6/7 classes. If you have had visitors from other schools leave comments on your blog, add a link to their blog on your blogroll.
