The first thing I noticed when looking at the Russell Street School Blog was the layout and presentation. My eye was instantly drawn to how it looked so inviting. I liked the fact that it almost looked like a website layout. I imagine that keeping up a school blog is so much user friendlier than a website. As I scrolled through the posts I also noticed that posts were not confined to just text, but including video clips of the students and their projects. I also noticed the tool Scribd used which I have used in another class. Being able to see the full document like that is nice and easy to see. I also noticed that some of the posts had smaller pictures, almost in the form of an article. I liked that and would like to adapt that to my blog as well. I also liked that the header had many options and functions and was very easy to use. For example, finding an assembly calendar was easy and was connected to Google calendars which is very easy to update. The header also changed as a went to different topics, which I thought was neat.
Although, I don't need quite this much information on my school blog, I saw how it could be easily organized, even when I have tons of information to present.
