2009 Blogging competition!!

Hi There!

I have just been here and seen the new challenge.
I know I am not Edublogger but anyway I wanted to do this post.
I had to choose one out of these three :

  1. Your own choice of topic but must include embedded media, created by the student or class, such as a SlideShare, video, comic strip, podcast, quiz, poll. Here’s the chance to demonstrate how creative you can be!
  2. Your story of how blogging has helped you connect to a global audience and what this connection has meant to you. e.g. the friends you have made, what you have learnt about other cultures, how you are able to share your passions with others, how you are able to use blogging to share your views on topics
  3. What difference has blogging made to your life at school and home e.g. how has it changed how you learn, the challenges of blogging and how teachers might make the process easier
and the one I have chosen is number 2 :) Enjoy!

Blogging , what keeps me going ...

I know it is hard to explain , but blogging is one of the things that keeps me going.
I do not know what I would do if I didn not have this blog , if I could not share what I feel with all those great friends that visit it , because they are always there to help me , they are always there to talk with me.
The blog has helped me a lot with English because it is hard if your main language is not English , as everybody knows I talk Spanish here , but to be honest now English is my first language too.
I love it and I can not decide if I love Spanish or English the most. They are both my FIRST LANGUAGE.
Now I talk English everyday , so , I am very happy to learn it.
Of course I would not be able to be posting here if Gabriela had not shown me this. I have to say thanks to her.It is really nice to continue talking to her , she is so sweet and I want to say her... Thanks , I am so happy to have takingitfurther!!!!
The blogging competition is a great opportunitie to meet new people and learn!
About my friends , they are great! I can not believe I can chat with them , through this blog I chat with people all over the world , at anytime!
And I would like to say thanks to one person.Because she was ne of the first ones that told me about the blogging competition , and I know how much effort she did last year.

Priscila, I'm so moved that I even clicked on the wrong place to write this comment!
I've been watching you improving your English, improving your communication skills, taking risks, having fun, making friends, pulling down space limitations... and I have to say I'm really grateful to you to.
Now I can confess that when I introduced your class to blogging I had less experience than the experience I have now (of course) and I really couldn't assess what the result might be. I would never, even in my wildest dreams imagine that three out of a group of 9 would continue blogging on their own.
It's great that you are learning, but it's even greater that it makes you happy.
A big kiss and a big hug.

Excellent post, Priscilla.

To be honest my words can't describe how amazing both your post and story are... and Gabriela must be so pleased to watch your blogging expand over the years.

Thanks for taking the time to enter the competition and if you do win you can always use it as a prize on your blog for a reader.
