Bradical (this is very exceptional!)

The Trench (good job giving your opinion!)

There are others that could be added to this list (hey I’ll get you next time). However, unfortunately, there are too many that cannot be added to this list. Too many of the other posts are very short (remember you are in an Advanced, AP or Honors level class), far too short to contain enough evidence of thought for your class level.

I encourage you to spend a bit of time looking at these great examples.

Weekly Reader Posts

Boys and girls…YOUR WEEKLY READER MUST BE PUT ON YOUR HOME PAGE AS POSTS. IF YOU DO IT ANY OTHER WAY IT WILL NOT GET FED TO MY RSS READER AND YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT FOR DOING IT!!

THIS IS VERY, VERY SERIOUS. I AM NOT KIDDING. YOU WILL SIMPLY GET A ZERO IF YOU DON’T DO THIS RIGHT.

Weekly Reader Posting Checklist

Some things to look at before you post your weekly reader:

1. Make sure your weekly reader is in a post, not a page.

2. Make sure you have either tagged, or categorized your post with “weekly reader”.

3. Make sure you have actually published the post and it isn’t sitting as a draft.

4. Add a photo to your post. That always makes things more interesting. :)

Weekly Reader Tag or Category

In order for me to differentiate your weekly reader posts I need you to to either tag your post as “weekly reader” or categorize your post as “weekly reader”. You can do either or both, it is your choice.

Also, I would appreciate it if you would add a widget to your sidebar showing your tags or categories (depending on which you use to identify the weekly reader).

Tomorrow I am going to do a video showing you how to do all of this. However, if you can figure it out now, go for it.

I have some examples on what I am calling my example site.
