-click on your link
-choose four to six of the most important facts or ideas related to your topic
-rephrase or retype those facts into a blog post
-find a photo, drawing, or art piece related to your topic and upload it into your blog post
-make the title of your blog post the same as your topic
-write a sentence or two about one or two of the facts you've located (is this similar to today or different from today?)
