Hello readers! This post is to inform you who I am nominating for an Edublogs Award later this year. Anyways, my nomination is… The Angel’s Cafe!

I have nominated this blog because I like how Yana is such an amazing writer. Her posts about video games include a lot of information and interesting things about the game she is talking about. I’ve learned many new things about a wide variety of video games from reading Yana’s blog, from things like special codes that give you stuff in the game, and how to style your characters to be ready for performing!

All in all, Angel’s Cafe definitely deserves a nomination for all the hard work that has been put into it.

Hello readers! This post is part of challenge 8.

So, as challenge 8, we had to do an activity called “Count 3 out”. First, you click on a blog on your blogroll, and then, click on a blog on their blog role, and finally, click on a blog on that blog roll and leave a comment on one of their posts. You should try this out if you haven’t; it’s quite fun!

Here are the blogs that I ended up commenting on:

  1. Earth Poem – Priya’s Purple Blob: I commented on this post because it reminded me of when my class did the same activity last year. I had a lot of fun doing it, and this post reminded me of it. :)
  2. Book Review – Izzy’s Nature Blog: I commented on this post because I like reading, and the book that Izzy was reviewing sounded pretty interesting to me. You should definitely go and check it out!
  3. My Kinda Music… – Cassidy’s Blog: I commented on this post because I like listening to music. I also like some of the songs that were listed on her post, but not all of them. If you like music, you should read this post and see if you like any of the same songs!

So, did you do the activity Count 3 out? What blogs did you end up commenting on?

 Earth Day - Trees by morgantjHello readers! This post is written as Challenge 7 of the 2010 Blogging Challenge.

So, Earth Day recently passed by, and our class did something really cool. We went paperless for the day, so we used absolutely no paper! You may ask how we continued to learn without paper? Well, we wrote on our desks!

For math (which is basically the only work we did that day), we had a set of dry erase markers (dry erase is this kind of ink that you can just wipe off without water). We did some work with number lines and timezones, so it was actually pretty fun. We learned some strategies how to calculate the (correct) time of another place in the world with a simple set of integers going to negative twelve and positive twelve. The reason why timezones go negative and positive is because of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), which is where the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) is 0. It goes down from 0 to -12, and up from 0 to +12. Our teacher said that if we flipped that number line so that it is going up and down, we would have a thermometer!

So, what did you do or your class/school do for Earth Day? Did you also go paperless? I’d love to hear from you!

Hello readers! This post is part of the Student Blogging Challenge, where you can visit and find more information about it!

Our blogs can be seen by anybody in the world, and so can all of the content we put onto them. That is why we can’t put copyright images onto our blog without the permission of the owner. But, there is also something called Creative Commons, which is basically work that anybody can access and use for free, but with some conditions.

The question that the student challenge is asking us is whether or not our blogs should have a Creative Commons license. I believe that it would be a great idea for blogs to have Creative Commons licenses so that our readers can share our work with others. Of course, they would have to give attribution to the creator of the work.

I know that I have a lot of readers, not just including my friends, family and classmates, so an idea like this will help keep us connected easier. I’m not sure if it will ever happen, though… but if it does, I would certainly want my blog to have a Creative Commons license!

Because… you can get info and news on the latest video games!

But, my blog isn’t only about video games. You can also see what I like to write about! Obviously, I like to write about and review video games, but I also like to write previews of video games and video game consoles too.

If you don’t want to read about video games, there are a lot of other things that I have written about on my blog, so I’m sure you will be able to find something that interests you.

Another reason you should visit my blog is that I regularly update it with new content, so there will almost always be something new for you to read. sometimes, it gets hard to find a video game to write about, but once I have found an interesting game I have no trouble writing it. It’s like the words just flow from my head to my fingers!

When you visit my blog, you can feel free to leave a comment and I will try to reply to you as soon as I can, so if you have any questions about a game I that I have reviewed I will reply to it the next time I check my comments.

This post was inspired by the Student Blogging Challenge, where you can go and register your own blog for it.
