It's the end of the March 2013 Blog Challenge!   I can't believe the time has come!  Now for the hardest part: to evaluate my blog!  I'm required to evaluate my blog at the last week of the Blog Challenge, and the best blog nomination is near.  I will give you the questions for my audit and my classmate's, a teacher's and my parent's audits:

1. How many posts did you write (different post on weebly and kidblog)?
2. How many were school based (assigned by Mrs. Vilas NOT Miss W), your own interests or set by the challenge (one of Miss W challenges)?
3. How many comments did you receive from classmates, teachers or overseas students?
4. Which post received the most comments?  Why do you think that happened?
5. Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why?
6. Did you change blog themes at all and why (on kidblog)?
7. How many widgets do you have on weebly?  Do you think this is to many or not enough?
8. How many overseas students do you have on your blogroll on weebly?

Questions for my audits:
1. What were your first impressions of this blog?
2. What captured your attention?
3. What distracted you on the blog?
4. What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog?


     My answers were:
1. 27 posts on kidblog and 22 posts on weebly (including this one).
2. Kidblog: 8 were school based, 17 were my own interests, and 15 were set up by the challenge.  Weebly: 11 were school based,  were my own interests, and  were set up by the challenge.
3. 36 comments on kidblog and sadly, 3 comment on weebly.

4. On kidblog, I got the most comments on The Similarities and Differences Between Earth and Mars, which got 8 comments.  I think that has the most comments because that was my first blog post on kidblog and that my teacher, Mrs. Vilas, encouraged me to write more blog posts.  On weebly, I got the most comments from Should I..., which got 1 comment.  I think that has the most comments because 1) first blog post on weebly 2) that person  doesn't have much time to view all my posts, so I'm guessing he or she scrolled down to the first.
5. I enjoyed writing the series "Tammy's Poems" because when the day after I wrote the first part of it came, I got so much encouragement from my classmates to write more that I was going to cry!  My writing is finally appreciated by my classmates!  And I got the same kind of encouragement today!  That's why I enjoyed writing that post!
6. I changed blog themes on kidblog because I liked the theme because it made my blog get taken more seriously by people all over the world!  Also, when I did the teacher audit, she said that it looked drastic and professional.
7. I have 7 widgets.  I think that is a good number of widgets on the sidebar.
8. I have 6 overseas students on my blogroll.  They were either my quad blog pals or students that wanted to check out my blog.

     Now I will post my audits from other people.  I did an audit from Saddat, my classmate, Mrs. Gioia, a teacher from my school, and my Dad.  Here are my audits from Saddat for kidblog and weebly:
     Kidblog audit: When I was observing Saddat, he had an "okay" expression, telling me that my blog was okay from his point of view.  One time in the audit, he said that it was nice.  His answer to the first question: "I'm impressed.  I was getting into what you were saying.  Also, I was persuaded to check out the links from your blog posts.  I liked the way you explained your topic in some posts."  His answer to the second question: "It's the link you provided because they took me exactly where I want to go.  Also, it's how you explained things."  His answer to the third question: "Paragraphs with decent amount of sentences.  Didn't explain thoroughly in a paragraph."  His answer to the last question: "You should ask more interesting questions at the end of your posts, put more pictures, have longer posts, end in an interesting way, and respond to others.
     Weebly audit: When I was observing Saddat, he was satisfied, or at least he looked like it.  He said "The font was good, and it was really tempting and interesting."  His answer to the first question: "It's really interesting and awesome.  I liked the introduction; it was intriguing."  His answer to the second question: "What captured my attention were all the blog posts you did and you put on the blogroll.  The blogroll shows me how many blogs you visited."  His answer to the third question: "Some stuff were blank, the cursive font style was confusing, there's too many paragraphs, the placing of the citations for pictures and the links to the websites in the citations."  His answer to the last question: "Ask more questions for more comments.  Too much exclamation marks.  Too many paragraphs."
     Here are my audits from Mrs. Gioia for kidblog and weebly:
     Kidblog audit: When I was observing Mrs. Gioia, she was smiling, and she said "It's fabulous!"  She was clicking on the links and even viewed my prezi!  Her answer to the first question: "The colors of the theme were dramatic and professional.  It was very creative and interesting."  Her answer to the second question: "I like the notebook style.  There were pictures that were uploaded.  Also, there were web 2.0 tools that were interesting."  Her answer to the third question: "There wasn't anything that distracted me."  Her answer to the last question: "When you are tagging, please be more specific."
     Weebly audit: When I was observing Mrs. Gioia, she said that it was fabulous and very nice and that I should be her blogging mentor.  Her answer to the first question: "It's very lovely.  I like the 'I love Blogging' picture because it's very tender.  By this alone, I can tell you are hard-working and dedicated."  Her answer to the second question: "It's the coloring.  It's different and imaginative. I enjoy the inner view.  The widgets and categories are interesting."  Her answer to the third question: "Nothing was distracting."  Her answer to the last question: " I couldn't give you any suggestions.  I really think it's fabulous.
     Here are my audits from Dad for kidblog ad weebly:
     Kidblog audit: When I was observing Dad, he was skimming though many of the posts, and he looked a little confused.  His answer to the first question: "Very good. I liked it.  It's awesome.  Used different images and web 2.0 tools in the blog."  His answer to the second question: "List of games. Prezis."  His answer to the third question: "Flag counters were distracting."  His answer to the last question: "Remove some flag counters."
     Weebly audit:  When I was observing Dad, he looked confused, scratched his head, and said "Isn't it the same as kidblog?"  His answer to the first question: "Very good. I liked it.  It's awesome.  Used different images and web 2.0 tools in the blog."  His answer to the second question: "List of games. Prezis."  His answer to the third question: "Nothing."  His answer to the last question: "No suggestions."
     As you can see, I have posted my audits.  Do you have a blog?  If so, what do you think of your blog?  Why do you think that?

What if someone doesn't have a blog Isabelle? Not everyone who reads blog posts has a blog.
