Blogging About Book Clubs

We’re going to create our blogs today.  we’ll create them, choosing our themes, etc.  Then, you’ll create a page.  Pages are different than posts (this is a post).  You should title your page, “About Me.”  In two to three well-written and well-organized paragraphs, tell your audience about yourself.  Follow ERMS Writing Expectations.  

Let’s get started! Follow the directions on the page provided until you get to entering your username and password.    Your username should be your block #firstnamelastinitial.  Create a password that you can easily remember.  Record it somewhere easy to find.

Leave the blog domain the same as your username.  Title your blog to reflect either your personality or the type of blogs you’ll write, but add your block # to the beginning of your title.  Ex. 1 EagleWordsmiths  I need you to do this so I can find your blog when it’s time to grade.  

When it’s time to write posts, keep in mind that anyone can see your posts.  Use your best and most mature judgment in your content as well as comments on your peers’ blog posts. Also, don’t embarrass yourself by including glaring grammatical and usage errors.  Follow ERMS Writing Expectations!
