Blog Audit

SBC Badge

It’s the end my friends…of the Student Blogging Challenge! I’m still going to keep blogging. This is called an audit for my blog. An audit is a review to see how I’ve been doing and things to improve on. There will be a few questions I’m answering in this post and I encourage you to evaluate your own and make an audit.

  • How many posts did you write? I wrote 6 posts for the SBC

I’m very proud of my writing for the Student Blogging Challenge. I’m least proud of The Little Things I Notice because it was not an original idea and I believe that those who own the right to the topic should’ve been put in the Flipboard Magazine, not me.

  • Did you change blog themes at all and why? I did!

I’ve always had fun with the blog options and wanted to change my theme to an airy color scheme, as I expected many more readers than my small class.

  • Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why?

Probably this post about money. It inspired a more NY Times newspaper style of writing, which I’m loving but don’t want to overload.

  • Which web tools did you use to show creativity on your blog?

I added a variety of widgets. My favorite is the quote of the day, of which Claire is convinced I stole from her. I love the little quotes and even send them to friends sometimes.

  • What was my favorite part of this challenge?

I’ve added this question to the audit myself. I was so amazed by the variety of blogs I explored. It was wonderful meeting others who had similar thoughts as me on post subjects.

Time for a parent audit. My mother has volunteered to answer a few questions for this post, her answers down below.

  • What were your first impressions of this blog?
    • I was impressed by the topic choices. They seemed somewhat sophisticated for a 6th grader.
  • What captured your attention?
    • I liked the pictures that went along well with the titles.
  • What distracted you on the blog?
    • Honestly, today’s quote of the day is really distracting because I can’t think of any reason for you to have a quote from The Pope.
  • What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog?
    • I kept scrolling, looking for your comments but I can’t….oh! Right under the title…yeah I would change that.

Thank you so much to Ms. Mack for giving us the opportunity to join this challenge!

Extra, Extra….Money-SBC

Ahh, lovely viewers, I am sad to say that the Student Blogging Challenge is coming soon to a close. I have chosen out of three topics, to discuss money. Though just green paper, these little slips are the most valued paper in the US. Anyways, let’s talk spending extra. Are you mad that you had to pay extra to see Avengers: Infinity Wars in 3-D? I want to know why you have to pay extra!

My experience with 3-D: I rarely see these eye-aching movies, just for the reason that they are eye-aching. I’ve seen a few and there are many reasons to see them. I don’t find them super cool, but, again, I don’t see them often. My parents believe that is a waste of money. Me? No! It isn’t in my opinion.

About 3-D: It takes a lot of extra money to produce 3-D films. Also, a lot of extra time. For some reason, 3-D versions of movies always come out about 2 or 3 days before the normal is introduced.

What other students think: So, there’s a lot of different opinions. Let’s look. Allyse says, “I’d pay $3 to NOT see a movie in 3D. I hate the strain of your eyes watching 2+ hours of a 3D movie.”. While others say that they would pay the extra, only if the movie has stronger effects.

There ya go. I know I promised a HP post, trust me, it’ll come soon. What’s your stance? Let me know down below. If you enjoyed this, please check out the article that inspired the post here. Want to learn more about 3D? Check this out!
