Blogging Ideas

A Week's Worth of Blogging

A week of blogging…

Monday Mashup

Using a photo from a friend or a photo with the right CC license, make a mashup using a cool editing program. Then publish it on your blog. Don’t forget to share with the original owner what you did and properly attribute the photo to the original owner too. Licenses to look for:

Tuesday Listicle

A listicle is a portmandeau (two words combined to make a new word) from “list article.” Listicles are written all over the blogosphere, magazines and newspapers. “Ten Random Things About Me” is an idea for a listicle, for instance. (Or “Ten Things I Wish I Never Would Have Lost” or “Ten New Year’s Resolutions I Could Never Keep”) What ideas do you have for Listicles?

Wordless Wednesday

Get out your camera or use a photo you have already taken. Choose a picture that tells a story. Post it, letting it speak for itself.

Off-the-Cuff Thursday

What’s on your mind today? Write a blog post about what interests you today.

Freelance Friday

Publish something you love that you have already written — a poem, a short story, a novel excerpt, or a book review. Be sure it is in excellent shape — check conventions.

Serendipitous Saturday and Sunday

Use the weekend to do any of the above that you want more of!

What other ideas do you and your classmates have for blogging?
