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!
