Earn Your Blogging Badge

Magic Macguffin campers are going to be posting a lot of content to their blog, sharing the things they create at camp, photos and videos and camp activities, writing letters home, etc. While would never suggest that there is one best way to write to your site (for that is what you are to learn as you go, to develop a style), below we outline some guidelines for being Blogging Champs based on our experiences.
