Blog-gone it – that’s a Great Idea! The “About” Page

I’ve decided to introduce another series of blog posts that feature unique ideas designed to add new content (and maybe a little “spice”) to your blogs! The ideas shared here are taken from blogs in AMDSB, and I would encourage you to reach out to your colleagues to learn more.

This week’s great idea . . . Add an About page!

When you visit most websites there is a page that explains the purpose of the site. Sometimes included on the About page is the organization’s mission statement, values, and goals. You may also learn about the author of the site which is important if you are validating the credibility of the information you are reading.

These are some examples of About pages on a variety of AMDSB Class Blogs:

Laurel Carroll-Walls – Mrs. Carroll-Walls’ Blog

Lauralee McCormack – Grade One McCormack

Becky Versteeg – Team2Eagles

Sarah (in Becky Versteeg’s Class) – Sarah’s Blog

Heather Echert – Mrs. Eckert’s Blog

Andrew Weber – The 4/5 Explorers (Andrew added a page title Listowel Central which links to the school website – love this idea!)

Jody Horne – Mrs. Horne’s Grade 6 Bloggers

Danielle Mascolo – Grade 6 is Awesome

Lucas Shepherd – Grade 8 with Mr. Shepherd


If you decide to create an “About” page for your blog, please share the link to your page by leaving a comment below!


One thought on “Blog-gone it – that’s a Great Idea! The “About” Page”

  1. I forgot about my All About Me page! I marked it private because it was a little informal (I did it to kill three birds with one stone: teach my Grade 2 class how to make a page, introduce Bitstrios, and to help my co-op student with an assignment). Can anyone see my page besides you and I, Leigh?
    Sarah was absolutely thrilled to see her name and her Grade 2 page published here. I was thrilled to see my own Grade 2 teacher also featured on your list! I continue to read and enjoy everything you write. Keep it up!
