I love blogs.

This little blog is in it's third year of existence. Before it came two other... "training blogs" we'll call them. What you'll find here are assignments, links to helpful sites and sources, ramblings, and other entertaining-to-quite-entertaining things. I will post and I will expect you to read. Sometimes those posts will be assignments, but not always. I frequently post links and videos to things I think are interesting (and think you should read or view). I will be clear about what is and is not an assignment but you need to be aware of what is here regularly and what is new and also (wait for it) what I said in class.

Take a tour around. Notice there is a glossary page, links to grammar stuff, news feeds, and a place where your blogs will all be linked. You will create your own blog using blogger, tublr, wordpress, or whatever you prefer and you will e-mail me your blog's URL so I can link to it.

If you browse the archives you'll see all sorts of things that may or may not be relevant to us this semester. Assignments and courses evolve, so some of the things that past AP Compers have done may or may not show up during your stay here.

I would recommend that you subscribe to my blog so that you automatically get updates when I post, but at the very least link back to my blog from yours and/or bookmark my blog so you can easily find it.

Happy blogging!

  7. Hey Mrs. Cardona,
    Just wanted to ask, will you notify us in class of any assignments that we will find on your blog? Or would you rather us just check frequently?

  8. I have a blog, but it's on a different blogging site. I'd like to see how this site works though!

  9. Hey Mrs Cardona,
    I read through the post and I'm excited to start blogging! Am I supposed to check your blog on a daily basis or will we be notified in class when we need to read/comment on a post?

  10. I have a "training" blog, too! Well, it isn't really training...more like "unpolished, completely full of ups and downs, personal and not fit for AP Comp" blog. So, here's to starting anew and trying out more of the cool gadgets Blogger has to offer! :)

  30. @ Max and Jenny: Both! I will usually direct you to my blog if there's something you need to see (like an assignment or something) but I also expect that everyone will be checking it/reading it regularly.

  31. Ok, I am really late on this post but the day that we were in the computer lab setting up our blogs, my computer didn't work for a good portion of the time so this completely slipped my mind. I'm sorry. But after having perused your blog, I really enjoy the pictures you have scattered around it. I found the website list to be informative, interesting and funny!

  32. This comment is long overdue, to be sure, but I felt that it should be made. Playing catch-up is somewhat difficult.
