The next speaker was Mb Ajeng who known by her blog www.muslimah.web.id. She told about the ethic for blog. He said because blog is on online media, we have to pay attention about the contents.
Next, we had practice session. It was guided by Mr. Irfan. We practiced how to make a blog in wordpress.com. He guided us patiently. The first step was, we created a new email in gmail.com. This step was for who haven’t had any email. Then, we went to wordpress.com to create a new blog. Now, we know how to make a new post in our blog and how to insert picture on our blog. We had free access Internet im2 from Indosat.
