Let’s look at creating a link.
You recently visited another blog such as “The Blogger’s Cafe” , “Student Blogging Challenge” or “Travelling with Mr Davo Devil“. While you were there you got a great idea for a post you could write about on your blog eg the parks we have in our local area.
When you write your post about the parks, it is polite to acknowledge that you got the idea from another blog. To do this, you include a link back to the post where you got the idea.
So how do you add a link? Sue Waters, from Edublogs, does this very well, so I am going to have you visit her post about linking.
To prove to your ICT teachers that you can add links in your posts (this is part of your checklist activities), write a post about linking and why it is important. Add links in the post to both this Kids in the Mid post and also to Sue Water’s post.
Also write a post about visiting three of your school friends’ blogs. Write about a post you enjoyed reading in their blogs and create a link back to that post.
This might start like this:
Looking at Isabella’s blog, did she link correctly in her posts? How can you tell if she did or not?
Or maybe you could write a post about joining the student blogging challenge. Make sure you include a link to the post about registering and also a link to the page with the student participants (Check in header area). Mention some activities you think we should do in the challenge. Maybe you have started visiting other student blogs from overseas. What did you enjoy about their blog posts?
