Spam!

I can’t figure out why, but in the past month, my Edublog has been getting spammed.  It’s easy to recognize which comments are spam, and which comments are not, though.  Some of the spam comments are ridiculous.  I’m learning to keep up, though! (:

New Beginnings

Now that I am starting high school soon and I haven’t blogged in a while, I am going to re-design my blog and start blogging again.  I can’t wait to continue my blogging.  Keep tuning in for updates! Thanks!

Swim Divisionals

Every year, swimmers from all around the state of Indiana have a chance to qualify for a divisional cut.  If you qualify, you get to go to the Divisional competition, which is held in March.  Divisionals start today, and go all the way to Sunday.  I am very excited to be participating in this meet, alongside my teammates.  We all hope to come home with some accomplishments, PR times, and ribbons. :)  Good luck swimmers!

Slide

Slide is a new website that I found and I really am impressed with the media and the cool features that they have on there.  One of the features is the ability to make awesome frames for Youtube videos.  I hope that you get the opportunity to check this out! Well, that’s it for today!
Happy Blogging!

Colorado

My family just got back from a vacation to Colorado on Saturday.  We got to do lots of fun things such as biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, alpine sliding, and fly fishing.  I really loved the amazing scenery and weather in Colorado, and I would definitely go back and recommend it to a friend.  Have you taken any fun or exciting vacations this summer?  Leave a comment and tell me all about them!

Happy Blogging!

Have you ever…

Lately, I have been a fairly busy person, and the amount of News feeds of my Google Reader seem to add up to about 175 a day.  I just don’t have time to read all of these News.  As weird as it may seem, I actually feel guilty about the fact that I just don’t have the time to read all 175 of these feeds, so I constantly find myself guilty of pressing the “Mark All As Read” button. . .

I just feel like, in some way, that is kind of cheating.  Oh well.  I must move on.

Happy Blogging!

Laptop Education

Thinking about the past two years of my education, I have had a laptop by my side.  When used correctly, laptops can be an amazing tool for education, but when used incorrectly, laptops can become a distraction.  That is why I feel that it is important to help your kids know how to use those extra educational uses, which becomes an alternative to video games.  This is why I felt that it was important to put something else that is a bit more descriptive in the way that it helps teachers, educators, and students to use technology for education.  Laptop Education is a wiki that is very helpful to educators.  Feel free to visit, look around, leave a comment, or request membership and add your own insights.  Thanks!
