Hello! I am needing suggestions for which blogs to use for fifth grade blogging. My district prefers it to be private and secure. Any ideas? Have you used KidzBlog or ePals?

Indeed, it appears it was an error, I was very sure I read that, but in returning I see it was not there. I apologize. I must have been looking at another site.
I have been using Edmodo with 5th Grade. It's a micro blog so they don't have to type too much, and it is private. Students do not have to have an email account to sign up for it. We've only been using it for a little over a month but the students seem to enjoy the interaction and even access it outside school. The moderator can delete any irrelevant comments.
I'm using blogger.com and love it! My fifth graders are "Blogging Through History." it is easy and fun. Yes they need an email address but it it is easy to go to "Design" then "Setting" then "Permissions" and make it so that only invited people may view their blogs (parents in our class, me and other students). This is my second year using blogger - AKA blogspot.com.
I have been introduced to edublogs.org in a technology class for teachers. They are blogs and the students can add eachother to read eachothers posts and comment! It is for educational purposes only and has created a safe environment that doesnt expose adult content to students!
try edublogs.org. I really enjoyed using it. Its very simple and easy to use. hope this helps!
Edmodo is also a good place to look. It is free, secure, and the students do not have to enter an email address to gain access to group projects, they only have to enter a group code. It is also easy to use and has several other features for teachers.
One more: Kid Blog http://kidblog.org
You do not need to make student email addressess, very simple.
