Before and After the Spring Cleaning in the Middle of Winter

I was doing a bit of spring cleaning, rather a bit of winter cleaning and made a few changes to my about page.  I took out a few sentences that didn’t seem to make sense and changed a spelling mistake.  When students are first building their blog they might include everything under the sun, or not enough.  So here are some tip and possible things to include:

Tips for students writing an About Me page

  • Include a sketched picture or avatar of themselves that is G rated
  • Include just enough of information about themselves to keep readers interested
  • Stay away from TMI (Too Much Information)
  • Only use information they want the rest of the world to know
  • Use creativity or write the page in a unique way

Possible things to include in the blog

  • Why they are writing the blog
  • Goals
  • Hobbies
  • Family

As always, if a student is creating a blog for a class, obtain parent permission first and encourage parents or guardians to frequently look at their son or daughter’s blog.
