A blog is a website containing information articles (posts )about a specific subject.

We  have been looking at different styles of information texts about the    lives of the  infamous  Scottish criminals, Burke  and Hare .

Have look at this  blog post online that  has been written about  the places  in  Scotland  that  are associated  with   Burke  and   Hare  and their  crimes 

 As  you read, think about these questions  ?

  • How does a blog post layout differ  from  information texts in a book ?
  • Is it written in  a formal or informal style  ?
  • Why are  images  ( photos )  important  in  a  blog post ?
  • How does a  blog post use  headings and sub headings   ?


Can you find these elements in this blog post ?

  • Hyperlink   
  • Caption     
  • Social media  share
  • comments  section


 Could you write a guide to a place that you know  well, (such as your local area , your school or even your home ) as a blog article ? 

Think   about

  • how  you  might  layout your post
  • what relevant information  you might include  (including images )
  • how you  would make your post  an article that people might enjoy and learn from .
