Yet more blogs to check out

I hadn’t checked the comments on the blogging challenge for a couple of days, but this morning there were 90 comments to check and approve. Many of the posts are included on this visit post, but a lot were from Mr Miller’s AVID students writing about their families and the forest – check them out in the sidebar of their class blog.

When reading posts, I have noticed that the students from Tunisia are responding well to their mentor and are asking questions about how to do things on their blogs. They are also helping each other to solve those questions. Remember you can always check out the ‘Get Help’ section on my sidebar to find information from your blogging platform.

If you are into anime especially Homestruck, Naruto or Ouran, then this blog is a must visit, another anime lover here,

Have you visited these blogs?

Thank youI would like to say a big thank you to those people who have taken on the role of mentor throughout this challenge. I have noticed lots of comments from them when reading posts for this visit post.  We have quite a few student mentors this year – they are students who have taken part in at least three blogging challenges – so they have been blogging for nearly two years or more. We also have some adults who have offered to be mentors on more than one occasion. In their bio on the mentors page they have left a link to a personal blog, so I could check them out before allocating them some students.

If your mentor or another student or class leave you a comment, make sure you reply to their comment – this is where the conversations will happen.

If you find a great post when visiting student or class blogs, leave me the URL in a comment on this post and I will add them for the next visit post.

Some students are leaving links to their posts in Twitter. They are using the hashtag #13stubc which is for the 2013 student blogging challenge. This makes it easy for me to visit their posts from the link in their tweet. I have linked to their main blog rather than each separate post, so they wont receive a pingback in their comments.
