This battle is designed to improve your blogging expertise, challenge your writing skills, while constructing connections and community amongst CDNIS bloggers and Teacher Advisors. Through this process we will learn about each other, learn from each other and open doors to a broader community, making new friends and acquiring readers from around the world.

WHAT IS THE BETTER BLOGGING BATTLE (BBB)?

  • A series of weekly challenges designed to improve student blogging skills
  • A super cool and fun competition to get involved in and learn new things
  • A way of making connections between local and global communities

The Better Blogging Battle is open to any CDNIS student. Weekly challenges could involve things like embedding widgets or videos, writing creative posts, taking action online, responding to discussions, sharing your blog with people around the world, comment etiquette, and more.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

It’s easy to sign up for the Better Blogging Challenge. Simply go to the Sign-Up Page and leave a comment with your information (name, class, blog URL). Your blog will be posted as a link in the right side bar and you will offficially become a participant in the Better Blogging Battle.

WHAT IS A TEACHER ADVISOR?

When you sign up for the Better Blogging Battle you will also be assigned a Teacher Advisor. This is a CDNIS teacher or staff member who will check in on your blog often, read your posts, comment in order to give you advice + feedback and be available to answer questions about the Battle. This may or may not be someone you know.
