advice: top 10 list

Posted on: April 28, 2010

First time blogging is not a piece of cake. I am the first to admit that I had my ups and downs while keeping up and managing my blog this semester. Here are some tips that I hope will help!

1. Don’t want until the last-minute! Be sure to keep up with your blogs on a weekly basis. It wont be fun at the end when you have to crank out 50 different ones

2. Visit your teachers blogs regularly. There are often tips and assignments on there that will make the process easier.

3. Play with your blog site for a while before you begin. It’s hard to work on blogs when you don’t know how to manage the site. It will be way easier to move around and use the tools that are offered to make your blog better.

4. Look at your classmates blogs. You will often get ideas or see things that you have missed that need to be done.

5. Do more than is required. Your teacher will probably give you a list of required blogs that need to be done. But use your blog to the fullest and take the time to write personal blogs. People will enjoy reading them!

6.Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you don’t understand how to do something or if something is messed up on your blog, ask your teacher or a classmate for help. You don’t want to go through the entire semester doing it wrong.

7. Label your blogs. After you’ve been blogging all semester it is hard to tell them apart. Make sure you have a unique title along with the what number the assignment is.

8. Use the spell check! Even though it is okay to use slang sometimes when appropriate when blogging, you don’t want to spell things wrong. It will make your blog look sloppy and as if you don’t really care about it.

9. Read you’re blog before publishing. Spell checking isn’t enough. While blogging it is common that you will get a role and sometimes slip up and the things you write won’t make sense. Make sure you go over it again and that someone who isn’t you will be able to follow it.

10. Have fun with it! Blogging is a lot more fun than submitting regular papers. You can add pictures, links and videos. Blogs are meant to be visually inviting so make sure and spice it up!
