Excellent post on Sue Waters’ Edublogger with tips for writing good blog posts.
Not to spoil the surprise (I encourage you to go and read the full post), but her first ‘top 5’ tips are:
- Use short paragraphs
- Use headings (and bullet points etc.)
- Remember to hyperlink
- Always comment back to readers on your own posts (eek! I haven’t replied to one of mine yet, and it was a great comment from Forth!)
- Subscribe to your own blog feed.
I’m going to use Sue’s post as a resource with my Year 9 students when they begin making their own blogs. Anyone have any other tips or hints?
