Random Chance?

Leave nothing to chance!

Two years ago, a student in Division 16 looked up the meaning of random for us: it means lacking a plan or depending on chance. But in blogging, it’s not wise to rely on chance to keep your identity safe. Take a look at my random facts below. In combination, they tell a lot about my life, but those facts don’t identify who I am, precisely where I live, when and where I do activities, or give that information about my friends or family.

So here are my 7 Random Facts:

  1. I am the eldest daughter of an eldest daughter of an eldest daughter (and my only daughter is also the eldest!)
  2. I love to make quilts.
  3. I have sailed around the world in a tall ship.
  4. I didn’t have any pets as a child, but now we have two Golden Retrievers named Luke and Solo.
  5. My favourite place in the world is Fernando de Noronha, an island off Brazil.
  6. I repeated Grade One, and didn’t learn to read until Grade Three.
  7. I can say “Your baby is beautiful!” in Swahili.

Your task:

Look at the random facts of these students  Sophie, Daniel W., and Haley. They have used a numbered list to organize their posts.

Write your own Seven Random Facts. As you write your own, think about covering a broad range of facts that your close friends and family would know about, but that don’t give away too much about you.You are writing a quality post, so proofread and get a second pair of eyes to review your work.


After you have written and posted yours, visit and comment on the 7 Random Facts of other Division 4 bloggers: notice surprises and connections–I bet you’ll find other bloggers whose random facts are similar to your own!

  1. Hello Mrs.Smith:
    That must of been funny naming your two golden Retrievers Luke and Solo. That must be nice speaking in a different language isn’t it.

    1. Hi Gregory, yes, Luke and Solo are good dogs with names that actually suit them. Solo is a risk-taker like Hans Solo, and Luke, like the hero of Starwars, just wants to please. I wish I spoke more languages. Do you have any pets?
