**This penultimate challenge (second last) is an audit of your blog since the beginning of March 2011.**

- How many posts did you write?
- How many were school based, your own interests or set by the challenge?
- How many comments did you receive from classmates, teachers or overseas students?
- Which post received the most comments? Why do you think that happened?
- Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why?
- Did you change blog themes at all and why?
- How many widgets do you have? Do you think this is too many or not enough?
- How many overseas students do you have on your blogroll?

**Now ask another student and teacher/parent from your school who might not have read your blog to do an audit.** Sit beside them while they navigate around your blog, record what you observe as they interact with your blog. When finished, ask them the following questions:

- What were your first impressions of this blog?
- What captured your attention?
- What distracted you on the blog?
- What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog?

**Some other thoughts for blog posts this week**

**Activity 1****.**

Will you continue blogging over your summer holidays (Northern hemisphere) or during the winter term (Southern Hemisphere)? Why or why not?

**Activity 2.**

If you didn’t get many visitors to your blog (other than your classmates), what do you think you need to do to get them to visit? Write a post about this.

**Activity 3.**

Do you think it would be handy to have a blogging glossary on your blog? If yes, create one as a page so it is always available to your readers.

**Activity 4.**

If you could nominate **only one student blog**** and one class blog** for an Edublogs award later in the year, whose blog would you nominate and why? Make sure you put a link to their blog on your post, then come to this challenge post and leave a comment saying who you would nominate. You cannot nominate your own blog.

These are some examples of nomination posts from last year: Becky, Dominique, Olivia,

**Activity 5.**

Check out the Google calendar on the Kids in the Mid blog and write a post about one of the celebrations for this week.

**Next week,** I will be asking you about the challenge itself . So please think about the good and bad things, the interesting and boring etc. Your opinion will help organize the next set of challenges in September when I will be travelling USA and Canada. Hopefully I will be visiting some of your schools.

I have a question. Why is it the year that i leave Elementary school, you decide to go to The U.S.A? It seems kind of ironic!

~Shea

I am only going for a ten week holiday and I will still be running the blogging challenge while I am away. Hopefully I will be visiting some of the schools which take part in the challenges.
