We are a group of 7th graders from Colorado who want to practice our writing and communication skills. We are excited to expand the walls of our classroom and collaborate with other classes! Please leave us comments and your blog URL, so we can respond back to you!
I have mixed thoughts about blogging. I dislike writing and I dislike blogging. I dislike both because it is hard for me to come up with ideas to write about. I don't like how it's usually a certain set topic. Personally, l like to write what I want to write, instead of having a prompt. Writing is not my idea of fun, and if I have to write, I like free writing. People also have trouble reading my handwriting, and I have to rewrite things, so they can read it. It is basically such a big, boring chore.
On the other hand, I would rather blog than write. It is quicker to type and it is easier to correct. I like using a computer for my homework. It looks neater and I like being up to date with technology.
Blogging for Language Arts has gone pretty smoothly. I think my blogging has improved. I hope it will also improve my writing. My next goal is to improve my writing buy working harder on it. Another goal is to look at what others are blogging. I think this will give me ideas for writing. It might also be a good way to learn what others are thinking. So, I conclude that there are more pros than cons. I vote that we keep blogging.
