Our time spent practicing Internet “savviness” and our unwavering attempts to write thoughtful and meaningful comments on blogs around the world have paid off! Our student blogs are emerging. Just like a pilot makes necessary adjustments while taxiing towards the beginning of the runway, you are fine tuning and adjusting the look and feel of your newly earned blogs before your first solo flight into the blogosphere.
These past few days you have been focusing on the appearance of your blog and while it is important that this reflects what you are all about, sharing a little bit about who you are goes a long way with readers. It’s an important step towards connecting with others. This is where your “About Page” fits in.
When you create this new PAGE, ask yourself “What would others like to know about me?“
Remember to keep your personal information as well as friends and family members’ personal information private. Make responsible decisions about what you choose to share.
Need a hand getting started? Try visiting Mrs. Wyatt’s Blogging Challenge instructions or looking at the “About” pages of other bloggers on our Blogroll. Some great examples can be found on Daniel’s blog, or neighbouring Huzzahnians! Savannah’s and Eric’s . You can explore these to see how some have already been done. How were they able to help us understand who they were without giving away too much?
