As this week’s challenge is all about commenting, it would be a great time to have some visitor widgets on your blog sidebar.

Sue Waters, from Edublogs, has a demo blog for widgets you can use. Check out her post but don’t go overboard putting hundreds of widgets on your blog. To get a widget, click on the widget or the link underneath it in Sue’s sidebars.

  • Perhaps choose a revolver map, clustr map or flag counter.
  • Maybe include a weather widget for the area where you live and a clock widget.

If using blogger, here is a post about adding gadgets to the sidebar in general. Here are specific posts for adding a site counter and revolver map and adding a clock.

Visiting a few blogs over the weekend I have noticed some fantastic conversations starting particularly with the students from Louisianna who are mentoring groups of 5 younger students. Keep up the great work!

  1. Mrs. W,

    The students I am assigned have made their welcome post showing their artistic & technological powers. There is no other posts on ant of the blogs. Is there anyway I or member of Edublogs team can get in touch with them?

    I have linked their blogs on my blog.
