  1. Dear Miss Scarrott,
    I really like how you decided to make a page of useful things others can put on their blogs. One of the things you put up is Animoto and I’ve actually tried to make one but I noticed that you have to sign up for it. Do you think I should and if yes how exactly do I it?
    From Claire.
