Blog Round up 2.0

A writer, like an athlete, must ‘train’ every day. What did I (you) do today to keep in ‘form’?

-Susan Sontag (7/5/72)

Another week has come and gone and I hope everyone had a great weekend.  (I spent mine stand up paddle boarding at ECP! And well, reading your blogs and writing my own posts. Win!)  How did you spend your weekend?  

Anyway, last week, we spent a lot of time wrapping up some things, or finalizing assessments and in the middle of that, we had some opportunities to write entries, read each other's blogs , clear our  RSS feeds and comment or respond to bits that struck us.

I am happy to say that many of you took full advantage of those opportunities and this just makes my heart fat.  Here is this week's round up of blogs to visit, read, respond to. :)   Brava, loves! 

  1. Hazel - an insightful view on blogging.  and storms.
  2. Gianluca - a sport lover's look at spending on sports.
  3. Jack - his poetic take on beaches   and books
  4. Jimin - a lovely post on blogging. 
  5. Mahpara - if you love music, you'll love this post
  6. Toby - you will never look at drum kits the same way. 
  7. Denivy - a shot in the dark, a post on inspiration.
  8. Rebecca - a look at her Inner compass.
  9. Rosie - thought provoking post on Palm oil plantations.  
  10. Aisha - Book review on Suzanne Collin's Mockingjay 
  11. Emily - make sure you read and comment on her first chapter.
  12.  Rosalie - more thoughts on beaches. Make sure you check her earlier posts too.
  13. Annabelle - Dream exercise resulted in this.
  14. Cian - check out this eerie account of his dream about The Man.
  15. Michelle - Help her decode her random dream.
  16. Victoria - Check out her super post on mooncakes.

  19. Lucy - on books and well, real life. 
  20. Ella - Check out her newest post on blogging.
  21. Caleb - a short post on his definition of music

So? What will you share this week?  How will you keep the conversation going? What can we all do to stay 'in form.'?

Finally, just a quick reminder:  don't forget to look at the tab on commenting. Helpful hints to make sure you are commenting with meat and grit and not fluff.  We also have new classroom signs hanging above the table for you to refer to, in case you need  immediate references while writing in the classroom. (Posters courtesy of Mr. R. next door. Thank you. They are lovely and useful!) Check them out.

Am waiting...
