I spent the week at a technology conference. What did I do there? I made my own wiki, 1001 Kids Books. I discovered how to increase my personal learning network with Twitter4Teachers. And I learned how to bling my blog. I found out about book screenings. I was told about blog giveaways. It was suggested that we add polls. Bling bling bling bling.
Mind you, the Bling Your Blog session was designed for (mostly) junior high and high school teachers. But here's what I came away with:
(1) Beware too much text
(2) Add polls
(3) Add buttons, menus, text boxes
(4) Images and videos
So, I ask you: How are you blinging your blog? How should I bling my blog? Must I? Or is my blog about as bling-y as a book blog should be?
To start the blinging process and to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day, here's my first book screening:
Lots of little reads this week....
