Welcome to Blogging!

Dear GLPS 21 Writing Students,
Welcome to KMLA! The winter camp has commenced and we are going to be busy preparing for the first week and setting up our own personal blogspot. 
The first step in our writing adventure is to set up your very own blogspot.  Your blog is an effective tool to share your writing with your teacher, other students as well as your parents and friends. Anyone can read your blog and also leave comments for you which will, in turn, help improve your writing skills and give you feedback along the way.
Here are some tips to help you on your way to becoming a "Blogging Idol":

  • Your parents are going to see it. Keep this in mind when you are writing and take pride in your work.
  • Blog anytime, anywhere. You can write anything you want when you have a chance. This is a great opportunity to practice your writing so use your skills to share your experiences at camp, tell people about yourself, keep your parents in the loop about what you are learning or anything else you can think of.
  • Think about presentation! You want your blog to be interesting for people to see and read. Experiment with fonts, pictures, videos and your layout. Remember to keep your blog neat and clean and try to avoid cluttering it with too many distracting gadgets.
  • GLPS will award the "Blogging Idol" for the best bloggers at the end of camp. Strive for the best! It is wonderful to get recognition for a job well-done so try to do your best and good luck. I will be doing "Shoutouts" each week to the best bloggers.
    The blog you create here will be a network connecting you to your classmates here at GLPS 21. Through our blogs we can get to know each other and share our thoughts and creativity with each other. And the best thing is that you can continue to blog even after we say goodbye to each other at the end of camp, and I hope you do!

    From now on, use this blog as often as you can. Write about your experiences and share ideas and thoughts with myself and your fellow classmates. Read each other's work and give feedback through comments. I look forward to reading all of your work throughout the camp.

    After you have setup your blog, please leave a comment under this post. I will add a link to your blog on my page so you will be able to visit other students blogs and make comments.

    Your comment should look like this:
