Dean's Blog

I’m new to blogging. So let me explain this to you so I can understand it! This is like an interactive computer diary. (I read the Diary of Anne Frank fourteen times when I was a kid.) Below are “posts” (diary entries) with the date of the post to the left of the title. See something that interests you? Click on it and read it! And then let everybody know what you think by leaving a “comment.”

So why blog?

To get connected, to keep connected and to share ideas. I want to hear from you! Did you just see a show that you loved? Did you just listen to an amazing song that you want to tell the world about?

To read my blog:
1. Click on the title of an entry below to read my thoughts (“posts”)

To add your own thoughts (“comments”):
1. Type your comment in the white box under my post
2. Fill out your email address (your email address will not be shown on the website)
3. Click “submit”

Want to know when I update my blog? You can “subscribe” to it! If you subscribe, you will get an email when I update my blog. It’s a quick and easy way to stay connected!

How to subscribe (please subscribe!):
1. On the right of this page, it says “Join Dean’s Blog”
2. Under that, it says, “Subscribe for Dean’s Blog”
3. Under that, there is a box that says “enter email address”
4. Enter your email address :)
5. Click the “SUBSCRIBE ME” button

And that’s all there is to that, folks!
