I've never used a blog or any on-line kind of journal and have never really gotten what the point of them is. I'm testing this out just to see if it will give me any ideas for what I might actually use it for.

Says something about me that my first thought at seeing the photo was "American Idol."

A blog tends to be a conversation that centers around the original post, through comments. Because this network has both blogs and forums, they do become a little confused. I would think of using the blog when you are exploring thoughts and ideas that you want to keep all in place for yourself--all posts on your blog. Whereas, forum postings become part of a larger dialog and harder to look back on.

I tend to use blogs in two ways.

1. A place for me to reflect on things or post ideas I have and invite other people to take part. Other people often expand on my ideas in ways I never anticipated, or challenge them in ways that improve my own thinking.

2. A way to share projects and resources with the community at large, a way to give back something after all the great things and ideas I've found.

It's different with everyone but getting in the habit of writing and thinking about education and your practice is a powerful thing and blogs certainly make that easy.

Look at mine 7th grade Study Skills
I post homework, extra credit, daily scribes, and other weird things. The Hamster Dance is a must see. The YackPack speaks to me, as does the Meebo. This blog is our central communication hub.
