After teaching a class on blogging, my students and I came up with some blogging ceation rules. Here is what we discussed:
1. Consider colours that provoke certain feelings for your blog e.g. red for excitement or green for calm
2. Add graphics or pictures to break up long blocks of text
3. Try to add links to reputable websites that support your ideas or topics e.g. NHL.com
4. Take the time to plan, write and edit your posts so they are easy to read
Please feel free to add some other tips to this list on creating blogs.
