Hello everyone – I just wanted to put up a quick blog post to get things rolling. I’m super excited about this run of #DigPINS as it will be my first time facilitating #DigPINS at University of Michigan – Dearborn and we have three other awesome schools who will be joining us for the journey – Kenyon College, St. Norbert College, and University of Southern Maine.
Blogging is one of the activities in #DigPINS and we have a blogging prompt every week. You can blog about whatever you would like either going off the prompt or going off something in the week that inspired or influenced you. Of course posting is just one part of the blogging experience. Reading what others have posted and commenting and connecting is the other part. This run of #DigPINS we are trying something new! We have established a blog aggregator at discuss.digpins.org that pulls in all of the blog posts from each of the public hubs into one place!
One last tidbit that I will add is that I love to add a “featured image” to my blog post as something visual gives it a little more pizazz! You of course want to be careful using what might be copyrighted images from the internet so I use Pixabay as they have a ton of copyright free images that you can use for free. I’ve used an image from Pixabay in this post and linked to the author and the site below. Check it out if you would like to think about using images in your own posts.
