What is a blog?
Blog is short for weblog. A blog is a website that’s an online journal that is frequently updated and published chronologically. Entries, or posts, include thoughts, commentary and resources such as tips and weblinks by and for general consumption. Anyone can comment—that’s called blogging; administrators and authors receive permission to post new entries.
Why a blog for CASL?
CASL’s blog is intended for participatory comments. A blog allows us to collaborate and share information such as timely news, lesson plans and links. District 20 Media Services Specialist Nancy White notes, “It’s a great place to share resources and issues relevant to school libraries. The blog provides a way to interact online.”
Rules for using the blog:
· Bloggers are expected to check facts, spelling and grammar; cite sources; and correct errors.
· Commentary, opinion, and reaction to posts are welcome; Comments should be relevant to the post to which they are attached.
· Spam, personal attacks, and off-topic comments are not permitted.
· CASL reserves the right to delete or edit any comment.
Violating these etiquette principles may cause removal from the blog.
