[Edit: I’ve found a couple more blogs definitely worth mentioning. See below!]
Continuing with our recent push to expand your community, read others’ blogs and thereby develop an audience for your OWN blog, in this post I’m going to point out a few more blogs that deserve some attention. Maybe you’d like to read a few and connect with the writers?
- Mr. Pepper has a class of students in grades 7 and 8 who are blogging. Recent “Honourable Mentions” worth visiting:
- Austin’s blog: Austin posts an interesting questionnaire — feel free to answer it.
- Bailey is writing lots of interesting poetry and some very introspective and thoughtful posts.
- Morgan is blogging about rather inspring topics like what she is grateful for and how to look forward to the future — very positive if you’re having a rough day!
- Melanie is also writing very thought-provoking poetry and posts.
- Over at Eight is Great I found these student bloggers:
- Thinwalls / Upload way up in northern Canada has a stack of busy student bloggers, too:
- Tyler has been blogging about the book The Wave and about Venice, Italy.
- Zelnaga blogs a lot about South Africa
- Skyler – “Random words from a Random kid” – blogs about Australia, bionic eyes, and music. Yep, random!
- Logyn shares her history of blogging and RSS. She also writes about Cairo.
- Devon likes to tell you about his latest World of Warcraft adventures, the World Wildlife Fund, and his project city – one you all know quite well – Bangkok!
- Clarisse has been blogging about some very interesting current events, including things happening in Tibet, Africa (with the Pope’s visit) and recent studies about red meat. She also uses her blog for vocabulary words.
- Do you love the Twilight books by Stephanie Meyer and the film, too? Check out this Twilight fan-blog, created by a fan, Stephie, aged 14. She also runs a joint blog with another friend with different content, called Taking It Further.
- MeghnaK in India is 13 years old and writes about all sorts of things — school, ugly cats, poetry, SMS from her best friends, and more. She has a very big fan base, with lots of comments. Check her out!
Hopefully you’ve found a few places to sit, read, and comment. And if you come across any other really cool blogs — they don’t have to be student blogs, by the way — then please leave the URL in the comments below this post! Or, even better — blog about it yourself!
Happy reading! I look forward to seeing your blogs grow!
