Blog Assessment!

How can you mark a blog? What do you look for?

I think my blog should be marked by the following things:

 

·        Updating posts all the time.

·        Interesting post with right information.

·        Uses different web 2.0 tools like poll daddy, animoto, slideshare

·        Putting tags onto your posts.

·        Using widgets and having things like an avatar, image chef, flag counter.

·        Categorising your posts.

·        Using blog in the right way.

Blogging comp.

First i visited Chelsea’s blog. then i went to her blogroll and went to Hayley’s blog which then i went to her blogroll and went to Sophie’s blog. She had a post on soccer and about soccer like where the positions are. 

I visted these blogs because they were at the top of the blogrolls.

She also had an about me page. There were a lot of comments on that page.
