Create a blog

This assignment will familiarize you with blog creation using Blogger.

Go to www.blogger.com and create a blog. (You will need to create a Google account if you don't already have one).

Pick the blue and white Simple template so all of our blogs will have the same look and feel.

When you create your blog, it will have "about me" and "useful links" in the right hand column. Delete them for now. (We will add some back later).

Also set the blog title to your name and give it the description line "This is my class blog."

When you have it set up, add your first post.

Your first post should give our definition of digital literacy: "Digital literacy consists of the skills and concepts a student needs for success in school and after graduation as a professional and citizen."

When you are finished, it should look like this, but with your name, not mine. If it does not look exactly like mine, fix it.

When your blog is completed, add a link to it in your record in our class roster database. (Test the link to be sure it is correct).

Print and turn in a screen shot showing your blog. Also print out and turn in a listing of the class roster, highlighting the link to your blog. (It should just say "My blog").
