Challenge 10 – Evaluate

There will be two evaluations:

1. Survey of the actual student blogging challenge – Most questions are tick a box on THIS LINK.

2. Survey of your blog

This is an audit of your blog since the beginning of September 2012.

  • How many posts did you write?
  • How many were school based, your own interests or set by the challenge?
  • How many comments did you receive from classmates, teachers or overseas students?
  • Which post received the most comments? Why do you think that happened?
  • Which post did you enjoy writing the most and why?
  • Did you change blog themes at all and why?
  • How many widgets do you have? Do you think this is too many or not enough?
  • How many overseas students do you have on your blogroll?

Now ask another student and teacher/parent from your school who might not have read your blog to do an audit.

Write a short answer in comments. ūüôā

Book review: For Whom The Bell Tolls

For Whom the Bell Tolls is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published in 1940.

It tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the¬†International Brigades¬†attached to arepublican¬†guerrilla¬†unit during the¬†Spanish Civil War. As a dynamiter, he is assigned to blow up a bridge during an attack on the city of¬†Segovia. Hemingway biographer Jeffrey Meyers writes that the novel is regarded as one of Hemingway’s best works, along withThe Sun Also Rises,¬†The Old Man and the Sea, and¬†A Farewell to Arms.


Ernest Hemingway wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls in Cuba, Key West, and Sun Valley, Idaho in 1939.In Cuba, he lived in the Hotel Ambos-Mundos where he worked on the manuscript.The novel was finished in July 1940, and published in October.The novel is based on his experiences during the Spanish Civil War, with an American protagonist named Robert Jordan who fights with Spanish soldiers for the Republicans. The novel has three types of characters: those who are purely fictional; those based on real people but fictionalized; and those who were actual figures in the war. Set in the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range between Madrid and Segovia, the action takes place during four days and three nights.

“No man is an¬†Island, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the¬†Continent, a part of the¬†maine; if a¬†Clod¬†bee washed away by theSea,¬†Europe¬†is the lesse, as well as if a¬†Promontorie¬†were, as well as if a¬†Mannor¬†of thy¬†friends¬†or of¬†thine owne¬†were; any mansdeath¬†diminishes¬†me, because I am involved in¬†Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the¬†bell¬†tolls; It tolls for¬†thee.”

SP Studio – Make your own avatar

SP Studio is an interesting web tool in which you can make your own avatar. ¬†It has many possibilities to adjust the character that you’re creating on the way you want. There are many different clothing and hair styles, many acessories, details and background scenes, so it gives you the posibillity to design the avatar in many unique styles. ¬†The tool is simple to use, because you just pick the prepared elements and change their details. When you finish everything you want to do, you just have to save the picture on your computer by clicking on the save logo, and then place it on some desired place.

Here’s a avatar which I’ve made. It reminds me a little bit of me.

Simple and funny, isn’t it? ūüôā
