    1. G’day Chloe,
      Thanks for the compliment. I have been blogging for 4 years now and the thing I find most important is to write regularly – at least once a week. This is easy when the challenge is on, but on my other blogs, I often forget. It is also important to visit other blogs leaving comments so the owner of that blog will visit mine as well.

  1. Hi Miss W,
    When are the blogging awards from the start of this year going to be held?

    1. G’day Amy,
      The blogging awards are usually around November time. Keep checking this blog as one of the posts will be about nominating blogs for the awards during this set of challenges.

  2. I am looking forward to the challenges this year and plan to help as a mentor. These are great ways to connect and learn how to blog at the same time!

  3. I would like to create a blogging challenge for all of my ICT students in my school. I teach Year 7 through 11. In the UK ICT is a separate subject and is studied at GCSE level as well. We are in the process of redesigning the curriculum and I would like to get as much input from students towards what we currently study and I think a blog would be an ideal venue for this data collection.
