Week 10: Survey

Finally it is the last week of the blogging challenge. I am here to tell you about my experience with the blogging challenge. I answered a survey to tell you this information.
  • How many posts did you write?

I wrote a total of 16 posts and most of them were about baseball.

  • How many were school based, your own interests or set by the challenge?
              All of my  posts were set by the challenge and only 3 to 4 are about issues at our
              school and the rest are about my favorite things to do and other things too.
  • How many comments did you receive from classmates, teachers or overseas students?
             I recieved a total of 10 comments and about half of them were from classmates                  and teachers at our school.
  • Which post received the most comments? Why do you think that happened?
              I recieved 2 comments on my post about Wisconsin Tourist Attractions. This                    was popular because I talked a lot about sports and fun things to do.

              I enjoyed creating the story about baseball while only using pictures. I liked this               because I love baseball and also found the pictures interesting.

             No, I never changed my theme once. I enjoyed my theme and found it cool!

              I had 3 to 5 people from overseas on my blogroll and the rest are from the US or                 in my class.

Week 9: Game


This week I played the blogging challenge game. I found blogs with pictures to be interesting. I like to have a visual to help explain the post or their page. I really liked a picture of a turtle I found on Jared’s Blog. In my comments I tried to say lot of positive things. Some kids focused their blogs on one thing and those were the blogs I found least interesting. I visited countries from Canada to Australia and Vietnam in between. I learned a lot about others countries. Most students had classmates on their blogrolls. Some also had blogrolls with kids they didn’t know, which made the game helpful.

I visited Mary from Vietnam-

I visited Shyanne from Australia-

I visited Abby from New Zealand-

I visited Max from Canada-

I visited Jake from Australia-

I visited Harry from Australia- 

I visited Kaylee from Canada-

I visited Jared from Canada- 

I visited Jan from Canada-

Week 8: My Digital Footprint


I joined many sites including gamechanger, bidding sites, and many other sites. I am also included in a lot of new articles like honor rolls and sports news. I have used my email a lot and some other information like names and ages. Sometimes I answer more than needed questions, but sometimes I don’t. When I googled myself I found accounts for stats websites and pictures of my family. I also found news articles about sports and school. After doing this activity I have found out how many footprints I have left. Now I will try to sign up for things I really need and things I don’t need. I now know how serious things can be on the internet.

Week 8: How I Learned to Play Baseball


I learned to play my favorite sport from my grandpa. He taught me the game of  baseball and helped me to create my very own baseball card collection. He also took me to batting cages and taught me how to swing a bat. I dedicate this post to my grandpa. Baseball is important to me because it is my favorite sport and I play it a lot. Through baseball I have learned a lot of life skills. I have learned to work as a team and work hard to accomplish my goals. My baseball skills are all because of hard work and family!

Week 8: Baseball is the Best Sport


I am here to tell you why baseball is the best sport. Baseball is a sport anyone can play and have fun while playing. I enjoy baseball and it is my favorite sport. I play on an AAU team called Team Heat Baseball. I play shortstop and pitcher. We are pretty good and we have already started playing. Baseball is a sport where I can work hard and have fun.

Baseball is played with 9 players and it is played with a ball. During a game players will field balls, hit balls, and throw balls. All are important parts of baseball. The pitcher throws the ball to the hitter. The hitter then hits the ball the other team is required to field the ball and try to get the runner out. You play 9 innings and there are 3 outs. Baseball is a fun game and it is the sport I love!

Week 7: Creative Sites


I used Miss W. links to visit different sites. I visited some very creative sites like Toy Theater, Getty Games, and Kerpoof. Each site helped me to create my own song, picture, or puzzle. I really enjoyed the Kepoof the best because I got to create my own picture. I made a picture of a baseball field. You could choose you scene and then it would give you characters to create your picture.

 Next I visited Toy Theater. There I used piano notes to create a song. They gave me notes and then let me choose how long the notes are. Then you could place them where ever you want and then once you were done you could listen to the song. My song has a “creative” beat.

Toy Theater Music

Then I visited the Getty Images site. I chose to do a jigsaw puzzle of a picture. You could choose how many pieces you want and then it would create the puzzle for you. I visited those three sites and had a great time at each.

Week 6: Volunteer Work


I would enjoy volunteering to help make baseball parks better in the United States. I would also like to help make basketball courts and football fields better. I would clean up the parks and rake the field. I would also make improvements to the dugouts and other things the field needs. I would love to do anything with sports and helping kids. I would also help donate money to help get better equipment. I love sports and that is where I would spend my time volunteering. Sports is my life and I would also enjoy volunteering more in the community.
