The ‘ WHY ‘ behind my blog

Hey guys!!! It’s KK! In this post I will be talking about the ‘WHY’ behind my blog. I will be answering a question that I have been actually asking myself lately. So let’s get started!

It was actually my mum that gave me the idea of starting a blog. She showed me a girl that was roughly my age, who had a blog and she really seemed to enjoy what she did.( I don’t actually rember who the girl was!) Ever since I was 3, I loved telling stories. Funny enough, I learnt to read much later than others, but that because I used to look at the pictures in the book and make my own story up. After, I would decide that my story was definitely way better! Hey, that proves I have always been stubborn! 🙂 My mum hoped that if I saw her read often , I would read myself- clever mum – it worked.

When I was in Year 1, I wrote a story that was 2 pages long. I spoke to my teacher a few years later and she told me it was amazing for a 6 year old child. When I was 6, I didn’t think it was a big deal, but now I am very proud of my 6 year old self.

Anyway, back to the point. I wanted to improve my writing skills even more, therefore I agreed to having a blog. I started my blog when I was in Year 4. I wanted to reach at least 300 hits by 2018. It is now 2019 and and I have nearly reached 1000 hits!!!! I am SO happy that I can’t even explain. I just wanted to thank all of the people that take a few minutes out of their day to read my posts. As I have mentioned before, I am now in Year 6. I am hoping that my writing skills have improved, but I suppose that is up to you! Feel free to contact me or comment what you think about my blog. I would really appreciate it!!!

I’m sorry that this post is so short however, the reason that I wanted to start a blog is pretty clear to me: I wanted to improve my writing skills. I did not expect so many people to visit my blog.

So that’s it for today!! AU REVOIR

P.S. Today it was National Lash Day. This time I did know about a day!

My day at bett (met someone special)

Hey guys!! It’s KK! I can’t believe that it is already February. Today, I am going to talk about an event I went to in January. On 26th January, my mum and I went to bett. Bett is a tech event that is held annually.This year, it was held at Excel. I suppose it is a kind of technology VidCon(without the you tubers). Bett is an event about tech in EDUCATION. Anyway, my mum and I went as she knew someone that had a stall there. She also booked us a coding masterclass. I definitely had a lot of fun and I did learn quite a few things.

 I think my favourite stall in bett was the Microsoft AI juice bar. How it worked was that there was a screen with a camera on top and images would come up onto the screen. I think it would monitor your facial expressions and see what juice you were. I was a visionary so I got the visionary juice. The scariest thing it that it was apple, mint and elderflower which is my favourite drink!!! My mum was a creator and she got a mango drink which she loves as well!

 To put the cherry on top of the cake, I met Ruth Peacey, who is a wildlife and conservative producer, director and filmmaker that loves penguins. She has worked with David Attenborough before!!! 😯 I asked her a few questions and she told me she was going to Antarctica and South Georgia to look at penguins. The reason Ruth was there, is because her and many other awesome people are on a website called Liketobe. To summarise things, I had a great time at bett and will certainly try to get tickets again next year. 

 

 I would also like to add that I am on half term and I am SO happy I don’t have to go to school.

 So that’s it for today! AU REVOIR 

P.S. Yesterday it was random act of kindness day and I had no idea! Did you?
