Oct 21

All students should have their blogs set up with at least one piece of writing posted by Friday Oct 23. This is for your grade so make sure you do it by the due date. You should also be actively reading and commenting on your partner's blog as well.

On a side note - I have relinked twice to all students and half the time the link is fine while the other half of the time it links to the feeds. I do apologize for the issue but my suggestion is to follow or link directly to your partner. That way you can avoid unnecessary steps. (But I'm pretty sure I fixed it!)

Good luck and keep up the good work.

We're working on getting all the students posted to this blog. Our school system has not helped us out very much. Hopefully, by next week, we'll have everyone up and running. Thanks for your patience. We can't wait to read all the writing we'll have access to. :)
