EduBlogs Challange #2 - Should you upload photos of yourself to your blog?

In this challenge, I was asked to answer the following question:

When do you think it is appropriate for students to use real photos of themselves on their blogs and why?

I think you should always be careful when uploading photos the Internet. I don't think you ever should upload photos of yourself to blogs or online, because they may not be safe. For example, the photo could have been taken outside your house, and could show your street address, so someone could easily come to your street and recognize your house from the photo. And then what would happen? Theft is just one possibility.

If you want to use photo's from the Internet on your blog, you still have to be careful. Most photos on the net are owned, and it is actually illegal to use them, so I recommend using websites like Getty Images Royalty Free. They are free to use and there is plenty to choose from.

EduBlogs Challenge #1 - Choosing a Theme

In this challenge, I had to choose a theme for my blog and explain why I chose that theme.

When I am choosing a theme for my blog, I look for a simple design with not too much colour to distract the viewer from the text of the blog. I like this theme (autumn leaves) because it just shows a simple design in the corner and is nice to look at but isn't very distractive.

Happy Fathers Day Daddy!

To a father as loving,
 as a father could be,
To the one that I love,
 to call 'Daddy!'

I have a message,
 thats come from the heart.
Saying I love you!
 is a start.

Finding the right time,
 to say this to you,
The right place, at the right time,
 has been difficult to do.

Right now, you may,
 have some things to persue,
But please just listen,
 as I say 'Thankyou!'

Thanks for the laughter,
 the good times we share,
Thanks for always listening,
 and always being there.

Thanks for the hugs,
 the kisses too.
I guess what I am trying to say is,
 Daddy, I love you!

Happy Fathers Day Daddy!
