Hello fellow bloggers, today I will auditing my blog as well as the student blogging challenge blog. I will be looking for things like:
- How many posts did I write?
- How many of the posts were school based, my own personal posts, or for the student blogging challenge?
- How many comments did I receive from classmates, teachers, or oversea bloggers?
- Which of my posts received the most comments, why do I think it got so many?
- Which post did I enjoy writing the most, why?
- Did you change blog themes, if I did, why?
- How many widgets do I have, do I think that I have too many, not enough, or a perfect amount?
- How many overseas bloggers do I have in my blogroll?
- What web tools did I use on my blog?
As you know already, this is week #10 of the student blogging challenge. This means that this post is the last posts for this years student blogging challenge. I have learnt lot’s about proper writing skills and learnt many things I didn’t know. I overall think that the student blogging challenge is a fun way to learn and a way for students to explore other peoples blogs. I highly encourage all student in all age groups to try the student blogging challenge.
Throughout the 2016 school year I have written 23 posts. 15 posts were for the student blogging challenge, 8 posts were assignments for schools, and none of my posts were personal posts. I received 16 comments from my classmates, 2 from oversea bloggers, and I received 0 comments from teachers. The post that received the most comments was my post on impressionist art. I think that it got the most comments because it was my first post I made on my new blog. The posts that I enjoyed writing the most was about maple syrup. I liked it the most because I was personally interested in learning about maple syrup and also because I love maple syrup. I have 8 widgets and I think that it is a good amount. The only widget That I would like to add is one that would have all of the names of my posts listed so instead of having to scroll down all the way to the post that you wanted to read you could just click on it and you would be brought right to it. I have 5 oversea bloggers on my blogroll. The web tools that I used on my blog include: Flag Counter, Prezi, and Bitstrips.
I was also asked to get a teacher/parent or another classmate to audit my blog. I asked my auditor the following questions:
- What was your first impression of my blog?
- What captured your attention?
- What distracted you on my blog?
- What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog?
My auditor said that their first impression of my blog was that it was very informative. The auditor said that what captured their attention was the amount of detail included. The auditor said that what distracted her the most was my widgets. And last my not least my auditor said that the one improvement that I could make on my blog would have to be to condense some of my posts.
We were also asked to audit the student blogging challenge blog. We were told to ask ourselves question like:
- what was the most interesting challenge for me?
- how often did I visit other blogs and leave a comment?
- did I read the student blogging challenge magazine?
- An interesting point about the challenge?
- and last but not least the most important thing that I learnt during the challenge?
I think that the most interesting challenge for me this year would have to be the one where we had to research a food that is popular in my country. I ended up choosing maple syrup even though it’s not technically a food but it is definitely a popular topping in my country which is Canada. I tried to visit many other blogs and leave comments on them as often as I could. Probably every week I would leave at least one comment. I tried to read the student blogging challenge magazine as much as I could because I enjoyed reading all of the posts that people have written who are from all over the world. I think that the most interesting point about this challenge would have to be the magazine. I think it’s the most interesting because it gives the students a goal to try to reach and it inspires the students to improve their blogging in order to reach that goal. I think that the most important thing that I learnt throughout this challenge would have to be that the more that you write is not all wise better than less. This post is a bad example of this but that is definitely the most important thing that I learnt throughout the challenge.
To end this post and the last post of the 2016 student blogging challenge I would like to thank all of my readers for spending the time to read my posts throughout the 10 weeks. I would also like to thank Miss W and all of her helpers on a wonderful challenge and I can’t wait for next year. But look on the bright side, even though the student blogging challenge is done that doesn’t mean that the posts are stopping so make sure that you keep a look out for those. I highly encourage you to leave a like and a comment and maybe even a subscribe to keep the posts coming.
