Well, this one won't.
At least for a week anyhow.
A friend recently sent me a message asking about how to increase blog readership. One way is to participate in Linky Parties. It's a great method of driving traffic to your site and a nice way for readers to know more about you. It's also a nice way to put together a blog post when your mind is mush and you don't have a clue what to write about otherwise.
Perhaps it is just me, but I sometimes find myself not participating because:
a-I don't have time to do so when I come across it...and then forget to go back.
b-I don't have the necessary pictures handy at the time...and then forget to go back.
c-It doesn't pertain to me.
So taking those things into consideration, and having been inspired by the bulletin boards that I posted yesterday as part of my Setting Up a Writing Center entry, I have come up with an idea.
I'm going to host a weeklong party.
Well, more like a party a day.
But there will be one everyday for a week.
Come to one if you want.
Or be a real Party Animal and come to them all.
In order to make this easier for you...because it's summer and nothing should be hard....I have brainstormed some "Journal Prompts" and writing assignments that should be:
a) easy to complete on the spot (or even in advance and set to autopost)
b) easy to include pictures with (you should have them already on your harddrive or can obtain them with a few clicks and help from my BFF Google)
c)applicable to all teachers (new/old/classroom/specialist/student teachers/etc)
Hopefully, they will bring lots of new readers to your blogs and the blogs of others.
Because I'm a planner, I've created a syllabus for you. That way you can get a head start.
Please take a minute to read Jenn's Linky Tutorial and Etiquette Guidelines. She explains things very nicely.
Then read through the syllabus and start planning your blog entries. I'll post the daily prompt and the linky link at midnight each day.
