Just a few days ago, I decided to sign up for the student blogging challenge of March 2010. So today, other than being the last day of February and end of the Olympics, it’s also the start of my first Challenge – let’s BRING IT! 😀
Challenge #1: Write a post about why students and classes should visit your blog. Why is your blog going to be interesting? What will you be posting about? What could they learn from reading your blog?
First off, welcome to my blog, it’s titled: who says penguins can’t fly. It makes me think about challenging ideas and thinking differently. Penguins are one of the only birds that can’t achieve true flight, but that doesn’t stop them because they fly through water and over snow by sliding on their stomachs. Yes, penguins are awesome and they can kick some serious butt!
My name is Clare and besides a minor obsession with penguins and frogs, I spend my time running around or swimming or burning endorphins like that and hanging out with my friends. The rest of it, you’re welcome to check out my About Me page.
I first started blogging the start of this school year because of my Humanities teacher, but it ninja sneaked onto me. Now, I not only blog about my school assignments like the novel study happening in my class, but about things on my mind. I find blogging a very casual, almost chill sort of writing. It’s a little like journaling, but public and with none of the frustrations about daily entries; I can write whenever I feel like it. I blog about adventures that have happened to me and what I think about those things occurring. I guess blogging is my way of thinking aloud.
I’m really excited about the possibilities of meeting other people who blog and all the opportunities for sharing. I hope you’ll visit again,
