Report Time

There is a fifth season that occurs bi annually for teachers-
it occurs mid year and again just before Summer hits.
Report season.
With it's monsoonal lows and high pressure systems - it's a beautiful, wild beast!

I'm loathe to admit that I don't loathe writing reports.
Hey- any opportunity to waffle on, express opinions and string words together is a bonus as far as I'm concerned.
The fact that the intended reporting audience virtually have to read what I write is an extra kick.

While I'm on a roll and in the mood I thought I'd write 'Mum on the Run' a little interim report on her time out here in the blogosphere.

I considered writing a report for Hubby, but reconsidered for fear of retribution.
I considered writing a report for Magoo, but being an only child, we know his social skills are seriously lacking and that his parents will be far too precious to appreciate any constructive feedback to that effect.

Mum On The Run  - Semester 1, 2011

She is a witty, popular, high achieving blogger with a vast audience...

- Oh wait - that's the report for Mrs Woog.

Here we go.

Mum On The Run  - Semester 1, 2011

Mum on the Run has settled into our community with relative ease. She's an enthusiastic contributor, although rather self obsessed and fixated upon particular themes such as marathons and toddlers.

Mum on the Run is gaining confidence in her ability to express herself, however, is easily rattled by the loss of a follower or a 'crickets' response to a post. She has a sound grasp of writing conventions but tends to overuse certain punctuation, alliteration and repetitive sentence starters.

Mum on the Run reads prolificly but sometimes at the peril of much needed sleep and even more direly needed housework. She is beinning to collaborate effectively with her peers, participating in initiatives such as Sunny + Scout's 'Point + Shoot' and Maxabella's 'Grateful for...'

Mum on the Run would benefit from researching the content she posts or even writing about phenomena that actually interests others. She is consolidating her understanding of what an audience appreciate.

Congratulations on your results this semester, Mum on the Run. You have obviously enjoyed your time amongst bloggers far superior to you. I look forward to seeing your continued progress - and inane drivel.

Shar :-)

Haha! I haven't quite completed my first semester of blogging but you've inspired me to give a 'report' when I do ...
