    • This is important because your post will not be graded unless it has the right tag.
  • If you’re having trouble with any of the steps, ask me immediately so we can sort it out.
  • If you feel more artistic, you can log in here and create a more formatted blog post (with bold, italic and stuff).
  • But if you know html, you can use html tags. They work!


Writing guidelines:

  • There’s no required length for your posts, so you can write as short/long as you want
  • You can use any style — paragraph, bullet, poem, etc. — that matches how you want to convey your thoughts
  • You can write in any (mixture of) languages you’re comfortable with, as long as they can be understood by everyone else
  • You can also add pictures, link videos, and other multimedia elements to your post; just search for Wordpress guidelines regarding this
  • Also, there’s an upload limit to this blog, so avoid uploading heavy files; I might have to delete it afterwards
  • Lastly, be honest when writing. If there are ideas that you got from somewhere else, make sure that you give them the proper citations



  • I will decide whether a blog post/comment is acceptable
  • If there’s something incorrect or inappropriate in your post/comment, I’ll discuss it with you so that you can make the necessary changes
  • I will like your post/comment to indicate that it is accepted
  • You can edit your posts/comments as many times as you want until you get the credit
