Blog Rules

Hand Stop Sign_1724Creative Commons License James Emery via Compfight

Our class blog is place for us to share all sorts of ideas, opinions, and other information with people not only in the United States but throughout the rest of world. Writing posts and commenting on other people’s blog posts is a great way for us to improve our writing skills. It’s important to follow a few simple rules when we blog so that we can make the most of our blog experience and be safe using the Internet.

Here are the rules:

1. Student work, including comments, should be identified by first name only.

2. Never share personal information like your address, last name, or phone number.

3. All photos of students on the blog are posted as anonymous and should never have names attached to them.

4. When a parent comments on the blog, I ask that he/she DOES NOT use his/her last name either. You may post it as Jack’s mom or Jack’s dad.

5. All posts and comments are approved by Mrs. McKelvey before they appear on the blog. Inappropriate comments will not be approved and anyone who does write inappropriate comments will be held responsible and will likely lose his/her blogging privileges. Remember, if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.

6. Be sure to remember the Tips for Great Blog Comments before commenting on a post. Remember, we want to make a good impression and we can do that by leaving quality comments.

7. Always proof your posts and comments before submitting them. Students should have a classmate check their writing for spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and grammar mistakes before submitting.

So, just remember these simple rules and everything will run smoothly and safely. Have fun bloggin’!

    G’day Mrs McKelvey, I have checked out whether your pingbacks are working or not and found you have made correct links back to the challenge in your posts.

    So maybe it is in your settings of your blog where you are not allowing search engines to pick up the links you have made. Check what you have ticked for settings>discussion and settings>privacy These may be the problems.
