bye bye blogging?

I have written a total of thirty two blog posts within the past year, this will be my thirty third post. But since March of 2010, I've written ten blogs. None of my posts have more than one or two comments, and I don't think that is very good. There wasn't really any post that got a lot of comments. Like I said, the most comments on one post were probably one or two comments. Most of the comments were from classmates or my teacher. I don't remember getting any comments from overseas. Mainly all of my blog is based on school assignments for class. I hardly ever, if not never, use it for personal writing. I enjoyed writing about where I wanted to travel because I got to think about everywhere in the world that i wanted to go and find out really cool things about it. My blog doesn't really have a theme, unless the theme is class assignments. Over the year I have not changed that at all though. I only have six widgets on my blog. I don't think that is nearly enough. I want more so that my blog stands out, but I don't want so many that it looks too cluttered. Even though school is pretty much over and the blogging challenges are over, I might start to use my blog during the summer for personal use.

Ellen Hopkins
ISBN: 1416950052
Cost: $17.99 Hardcover, $7.41 Paperback

Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical twins, yet completely different. Daughters of a judge and Congress candidate, everything seems perfect and happy. On the inside, both are struggling for attention and answers that they so desperately need. Raeanne turns to drugs and sex for a substitute of the love her father doesn’t show her, while Kaeleigh just wants to be noticed by her mother who is never home. Even their dad, feeling lonely and rejected by his wife, seeks attention for Kaeleigh instead. Damaging secrets lie within the Gardella household, along with jealousy, rivalry, and possibly even sympathy. As these secrets are revealed, Kaeleigh and Raeanne need each other to get through it, and end up helping each other without even realizing it.
“I wish I could help Kaeleigh work her way past all the major crap so she could accept the good things waiting for her, almost within reach.”
“Love, I know, isn’t something to second-guess, but in my world love is always defined by ulterior motive. To say yes, give my whole heart away, simply terrifies me.”

blogging challenge 5

This is this week's blogging challenge. I think that if some people want a creative commons license then they should get it so that nobody can use their work without either giving them credit for it or paying them. I'm not sure what my audience of this blog is, but I'm sure that it's mostly students and maybe a couple of teachers.

This is our classroom that we wish we had.

For our claymation project we went through a long process. First everyone was assigned characters to create out of clay. Once that was finished, we started writing the script and working on the actual video. Everyone was assigned a job for the video. My role in the video was to be one of the benders of the clay people. I think i was pretty successful with this role, since it was one of the easiest. Teamwork was really important in making this project. I've learned that with teamwork, if one person doesn't cooperate then the whole project gets harder than it should be. In my opinion, I would gladly do these kind of projects instead of taking tests. I like projects because they're more hands on and not so boring. If we could do this project over differently, I think that we should take our time and not be rushed. Maybe we should take more pictures to explain what's going on a little better. But overall I think the project turned out quite well.
