Raise Awareness!

One wonderful thing about blogs is that they are for everyone to see! Our class blog is private but in a real blogging scenario you would be writing for other people to view. I spend a lot of time on the internet as I am sure many of you have as well. One major blogging topic is to raise awareness about a certain topic that you feel needs to see a change! The greatest thing about doing this is that you can state your opinions on something that you want everyone to know about and then it can be view-able for many people around the world. In today’s class I want you to write two paragraphs about a topic you feel needs to be changed! This can be a small issue such as school uniforms or it can be a large issue such as animal cruelty! You choose! You must say why this is important to you, why it needs to be changed and why others can benefit from the change! You must be convincing and persuasive! As always, you must comment on three other students blogs! …

Let Us Review…

Let Us Review…

Blogs are especially known for reviews on works of art or literature. Write a review on something you recently experienced. Was it a great book? A terrible book? Was it a great movie? Or a terrible one? A new song? A new TV show? Tell us! You are the reviewer! Write 3 paragraphs on something you recently watched, read listened too, a game you played or something else that you want to right a review about! Then as always, comment on at least three other blogs!

Intro to Blogging, Intro to you

Welcome to our first blog post! Here is where I will introduce you to blogging, introduce you to me and allow you to introduce yourself! Blogging is casual writing that should be fun! Allow yourself to have fun while blogging while you allow others to get to know you! I am going to introduce myself to you and below I would like you to introduce yourself to me!

Hello everyone!! My name is Ashley and I am 25 years old! I am a computer science teacher in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. I have lived here for two years and I absolutely love it! Honduras is a beautiful country and I have been able to travel to many new places. I am from Colorado and I love to go home and see the mountains!! Some of my favorite hobbies are hiking, skiing, snowboarding, scuba diving, camping, mountain biking, yoga and traveling! I have a younger brother who goes to the University of Colorado, he is 22. I have a puppy named Chiqui and he is a rottweiler. I love him so much! I love to take him on hikes in Hatilo! After working in Honduras I would love to work in Europe…especially Italy! However, I would really like to live anywhere because I love seeing new places, trying new foods and learning about other cultures! This summer I am traveling to Peru to hike the Inca trails! After Peru I will be going to Roatan to scuba dive for a week and then I will go back to Colorado for about 4 weeks! I have a very busy summer planned but I am very excited!

Now it’s your turn! Write 2 paragraphs about yourself below!
