  • Having a purpose is important to help you concentrate on why you are running a blog.
    Why do you have a blog? What do you want to do with it?
  • Different purposes... Don’t just have a blog because it’s the new big thing. Why do you want one - what will you use it for?
  • There are millions of blogs out there - what sets yours as different?
    How are you catering to your purpose and your audience?
    Spend time looking and commenting at other blogs for ideas.

    53. 53. Students Online * Be safe Work Agreement * Be mindful of what you say * Be respectful to others * Be informative * Be interesting When we write on the web the whole world can see it. What we say, the pictures we post, or the videos we share give anyone who reads it a good or bad view of me. Anything we share can be saved and viewed by others forever. Because of all of this, we need to make sure that the impression we give to others who read our work is a good one, and we promise that: * Our writing will be a true description of places, events, people, or our thoughts or feelings. * We will treat people who read and reply to our work kindly, even if we disagree with what they write. * We will never share personal information about ourselves, such as our name, photo, age, address, my parents’ names, etc. *We will not use bad language, pictures, or videos. We know that we are the only people who is responsible for the things written or included in our online work. We will do our best to make sure it is all correct and appropriate, including keeping track of the comments we receive. If anything is posted that is inappropriate, offensive, or dangerous, we will notify our teacher as quickly as possible. We will also take full responsibility for any good or bad consequences.
