Student Blog Challenge!

Share your blogging experience and win BIG!

All of you have done an amazing job so far with your blogs and now you have a chance to win something no other student of mine has had the chance to win... a real "badge of honor."  

This is a contest run by "The Edublogger"   Sue Waters, and will have many students entering from around the world.  This can benefit you in so many ways.  If you win, you earn a badge and some great additional honors.  If you do not win,  you still have the chance to gain followers on your blog from around the world!  How awesome is that!

When you go onto the website you will have to read the directions on how to enter AND what you will have to blog about.  In the end however all you have to do is blog about one of the topics they list on the site.  Once you blog, you simply add your blog as an entry by making a comment in the comment section.  So easy! So fun! So AWESOME!

I am so excited to see all the great things all of you will come up with... Below are some screen shots to help you find what you need to look for on the site.  Take a look at them before "Wandering" around "The Edublogger" website.  Have fun!

Screen Shot One/Step One: 

Find the "How to Enter" section and read what it says there. (Since we were not a part of the "Blogger Challenge for September" I recommend you choose topics 1, 2, or 5)

Screen Shot Two/Step Two:

Once you write your post follow the directions found under the "Once you have written your post" section. (Don't forget to follow the "example" at the end of this section in YOUR post) REMEMBER... Your Entry must be posted on YOUR blog and then entered in the comment section HERE.  Follow directions and you will do great.

Screen Shot Three/Step Three:

Lastly, you must read the "What you could win" section to see what you could win.  I think the coolest prize is the badge that will be placed on your blog.  If you earn that badge then you can honestly say you are one of the best "Student Bloggers" in the WORLD!  WOW!  (The badge that will be displayed on your blog is pictured below)

Have you ever wanted to email someone and really get the point across?  Sometimes the only way for someone to see what you mean is for them to actually "SEE" what you are talking about!  Now you can!

With this website you now have the opportunity to send a "video email" if you have a question or comment!  It is easy and fun.  For the weekend wanderer (since we are off school) I figured why not give you a tool that could be fun.

I would recommend when using this site to click on the "Self Destruct" option when sending.  This way, the video can only be viewed once and then it will delete itself.  You can also decide how long you want the video to be viewable.  Make sure you only use this site to send email videos to family or a teacher for a question.  Be very careful with it and make sure you are responsible with how you use it.  Have fun...
