Try to see blogging as the beginning of a conversation. Write encouraging comments on the blogs of others, and then try responding to comments that others make on your blog.
The task today relates to embedding content.
There is all sorts of content apart from images that you might want to embed in your blog.
In general embedded content pulls in data from another place of the internet into your blog. If the content disappears from the external site then it will not show up on yours.
For example, the map below shows countries that I have visited. It is generated by a really simple piece of code that pulls the data in from an external site called World66.
You might like to try your hand at embedding a YouTube video. Once again it is just a matter of inserting the html code. Make sure though that you copy the code into the html screen of your post.
There are all sorts of things to embed: a Prezi, a Google Doc, the Mr Linky that I use, even a Frappr Guest Map.
Your task is to write a new post that
- displays at least one bit of embedded content
- contains a BlogFest logo (either mine or yours)
- links back to this Task #3 post.
- Visit the posts of others to see what they have done.
