Skype is an instant messenger service like Google Talk, or MSN. With it you can type messages to your friends who have Skype, or chat with them. When chatting you have two options. You can choose to just talk to them, or you can choose video chat, where you can chat and see each other provided that you have a webcam. Aside from doing all the normal things you can also do a few different things. You can buy Skype credit, and using it, you can text or call mobile or land line phones. You can also share your screen with your friends, so if you need to show them a document then all you need to do is click a button. You can also play games like checkers or chess. If you wish to download Skype then go to: I would rate Skype at 8 out of 10. This is also my 4 post of my summer challenge.

Wordpress is a free website for making blogs. Just like blogger, you can do all your normal things such as making posts, and adding categories. It can also so things quite different from blogger though. It can also do things like have multiple pages, choose from over 100 themes, help you make a great design, and have multiple editors. Having multiple editors can be a great thing when you have more than one person who needs to edit the blog. All you have to do is write their email, add some personal information, and then they can edit your blog. You can also set them to different ranks. For example: you might have a person who you want to publish and change posts, but not be able to change anything big. You would set this person as an editor. When you start your blog on, then you will be automatically be set as the administrator, who can do anything. You can also set people to contributor, but all they can do is write their own posts. Here are the links to some of the Wordpress blogs that I have made for my friends:, and: I would rate at 9 out of 10. This is also the 3 post of my summer challenge.

Fencing in the Summer

This summer I took part in the afternoon fencing course at the Doug Snooks Eagle Place community center in Brantford. It was my second time ever going to this camp, which means that I have been fencing for a total of 1 year now. I also take part in a fencing club that takes place from April to September from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. It is at the SC Johnson Costain Community center. If you want to know more about this club, then go to: This is also post number 2 in my blog challenge. Make sure to keep updated on my awesome blog!!

My Summer Challenge

This Summer my dad has given me a challenge to do over the summer. If I can manage to bike 700 km by September 5, then I will get a new computer with 2 monitors, Windows 7 and office 2007. I can also do another challenge. All I have to do is complete six of the challenges on this page on my website: So far I have already done the swimming challenge, the running challenge, the reading challenge and the web challenge which is what the link to my website is. I am also trying to do the blog challenge, which is what this is. I have to post an entry on my blog a minimum of 8 times every week. Each one also has to be 100 words or more long. So far this is my first one.
