Family Blogging Month

When Mr. Avery told us that we would be having a Family Blogging Month I was ready to start commenting right that instant. How it worked was whoever got the most comments from family members & friends would get their own blog. That day when I got home from school I was ready to start getting comments. By the end of the month I had about 47 comments. When I found out I had a blog I immediately started thinking of blog names. Then I thought of Kidding with Kirstyn, and the rest they say is history.

Above is a photo of Mr. Avery’s Family Blogging Month Post.

When receiving comments I always made sure to reply to whoever wrote the comment.

So now that you know how I got my blog, Welcome to Kidding with Kirstyn!

I hope you like my blog and check back soon because I’ll be adding posts frequently!

  5. Hi Kirstyn

    Dropping in from Tasmania, Australia to take a look at your blog. Your teacher put out a tweet inviting us to come and see some new bloggers at work. Your blog looks great and I loved the way you used Animoto to advertise not just your own blog but others as well.

    Was this your first Animoto? How did you create the images you used?

    • Dear Mrs S,
      WOW! It’s so cool to see somebody from Australia on my blog! I’m very happy that Mr. Avery generously gave me a blog! This was my first time using Animoto and I really like using it! All you have to do is add in some nice music, put in the photos and videos, and add text and then snap you’ve made a unique display of photos and videos! It was very easy making the photos because I used paint. First I took a screenshot of the photo I wanted. Then I copied it into paint and cropped it to the size I wanted it to be. Then I copied the part I wanted into another paint window and deleted the part I didn’t want. Then I just doodled on it and changed it to a JPEG photo file and then I had a photo from the blog or of Mr. Avery rapping! Thanks for commenting on my blog!

  6. Dear Kirstyn,

    Welcome to the world of blogging! I am a teacher in California, and we have our own class blog. In addition, we have a few students who have earned their own blogs. The entire class loves to blog!

    You asked what is my favorite part about blogging. I love meeting new bloggers from all over the world. It is fun to study the ClustrMap and learn about the world.

    You had a wonderful video featuring all your friends. Very nice, Kirstyn. 🙂

    Happy Blogging!

    • Dear Mrs. Morris,
      Thanks for commenting on my blog! It’s great to have more people commenting on my blog since I don’t have many visitors on it yet. I really like using Animoto because it makes video-making fun, easy, and fast! It’s a great tool for making fun educational videos! I always try to keep on top of replying to my commenters so they don’t think I’m neglecting my blog! Thanks for putting a link to my blog on your site!

  9. Hey Kirstyn,

    I like the name of your blog and the subtitle. It is cool how you used the Animoto website to make the awesome video. It was funny how you drew on Mr. Avery’s face. 🙂 Keep up the good work!

    Your Friend,

    • Dear Frankie,
      Thanks for commenting on my blog! It took me exactly FOREVER to think of the name, but the subtitle came naturally. I love to use Animoto to make videos because it makes video-making quick, easy, and fun! Keep checking on my blog!
      Kirstyn M.

  10. Hi Kirstyn,
    We like your video because it had good music.How long have you had Animoto? Did you make this by yourself.We like the funny man with the moustache.

    Keep up the nice work!

    • Dear Amelia & Valerie,
      It’s great that you liked my video! I’ll probably use Animoto for more videos in the future! Animoto is a great blogging tool and it really makes video-making quick and easy! It took me a while to find the perfect music for this video but I think I selected just the right music for this video! I’ve had Animoto for probably two or three weeks now. Yes, I did make this video myself! Matter of fact, I made this whole post by myself! By the way the funny man with the mustache is my teacher, Mr. Avery who generously gave me this blog! You can check out his blog here: I think you will really like his blog! Do you have a blog of your own? What’s your favorite part of blogging? Thanks for commenting on my blog!

  11. I loved the video! It was amazing! I still can’t believe you got 47 COMMENTS. It’s impossible for me to write one comment! Well, unless I started a conversation with a few people. I can’t wait to read your next post!
    P.S I loved EVERYTHING about it!

    • Dear Aliyah,
      I’m glad to hear you liked my animoto video! 47 comments was a lot to get,but with the help of family members and friends, I made it! Also replies count too! Thanks for writing a comment! I’ll be sure to make a new post soon! Do you have your own blog? If so I’ll make sure to check it out!

  13. Dear Kirstyn,
    My name is Cassie. I am also a student. I am a student in Dr. Strange’s EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. This is my first time blogging. My first blog post was January 18, 2012. I think it was pretty awesome of Mr. Avery to let you guys compete for your own blog. Congratulations on getting your own blog. I would have never guessed this was your first blog. By looking at your blog, you would think you were an expert. The alliteration you used in naming your blog was very creative and I think it is super kool! I enjoyed reading your first blog post and your video.


    • Dear Cassie,
      I checked out your blog and it was very interesting. I was very excited when I got my new blog also! Thanks, but I’m not an expert. But Mr. Avery is. You can check out his blog here: It’s really awesome and you should defiantly check it out!

    I really enjoyed the video on your blog! I think that it is awesome that you were so excited to create your blog and start receiving feedback from people.

Your blog has given me a lot of neat ideas for changes to make to my blog!
