Slice of Life Story Challenge

Day 24 of the March SOLSC #SOL16

Welcome to Day 24 of the 9th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!  

If you’re sharing your students’ slice of life stories, please head over to the Classroom Challenge.

 Please Help! 

Some of the co-authors and I have received questions about comments. It seems, for some bloggers, that posting comments on a Blogger post or a WordPress post present problems for those wishing to comment. Does anyone have experience or advice for bloggers wishing to comment who are receiving errors? If you have any ideas or solutions, this seems to come up every year and we have never been able to get a good answer. Please email me, Betsy, betsymhubbard[@]gmail[dot]com if you have any suggestions. Should I get a response that sounds like a feasible solution I will post it at the top of the Call for Slices tomorrow or Saturday. Thank you!
