Help a U.S. teacher teach her students about Canada

This is such a fantastic idea!

A Seattle area teacher is preparing a lesson plan for a unit about Canada, and she wants you to tell her about your community. More information in the link above. Found via Saskboy.

  1. KD, do you know about Trackbacks and how to use them? It lets you post a link and segment of your blog entry on my blog if you ping my trackback URI for the entry you've linked to.

    If that doesn't make sense, and you've never trackbacked before, let me know, and I'll explain how to do it using one of the free trackback pingers on the web.

  2. I've never used trackbacks before. Want to give me a tutorial? :) I've had a website for years, but I'm pretty new to this blogging thing.

    You can email me through my website.


  3. I'll post it here so the world can learn.
    If you write something that is about another blog entry, you can ofen trackback to it, so that visitors to the original blog also see your site wrote about it.
    Using this entry of yours as an example of the steps:
    1. Find a Trackback URI on the post you want to have your article's link appear on. It might be in a link called Trackback, and it will be a URL that isn't the permalink URL of the origional blog.
    2. Copy that Trackback URI
    3. After posting your story with a link to my blog entry included somewhere in the post, go to Wizbang or another trackback pinger [there's one built into Wordpress if you ever move from Blogger], and paste the Trackback URI into the Ping spot.
    that's the Wizbang site.

    4. Paste the URL of your blog entry into the right spot, in the form.
    Paste an excerpt too. Submit the Trackback and it will give a status in XML code.

    In a few minutes, or whenever I moderate my trackback pings, your link will appear on my blog [in the comment section on Wordpress, but for some blogs right on the main page].

  4. Your trackback worked, it's just that in WordPress the Trackbacks are lumped in with the comments, although other systems show them seperately. If I ever switch systems, then it'll put your trackback in the seperate space.
