Thanks so much for the information, Gail.  I may start blogging in my computer 
lab next year.  You are always so gracious to share.  I love your website, too.
Thanks again,

        What a great question you have asked, Summer.
        Blogging is a term which started as "web log" and refers to an online 
        journal which is posted for others to read and usually respond to. It 
is kind of 
        like a personal online journal with room for others to read and respond.
        There are many sites which offer free hosting of blogs - some of these 
        full of ads or share server space between well-meaning blogs (like 
yours and 
        mine) and some questionable blogs (like "wild sex space"). So look for 
        education-specific blogs or host your own. Another thing to look at is 
the  ability
        to approve posts or comments prior to the comments actually being 
        online... if this is important to you.
        One of my favorite sites to learn more about ed-blogs and to actually  
        your ed-blog is Blogmeister
(http://www.landmark-project.com/blogmeister/index.php) )
        This video
(http://campus.belmont.edu/chenowit/dragonstale/WebLoggingSmall.mov) )  is
        about a high school class using a blog - they use it for more than just 
        One example from a first grade is at
(http://www.mpsomaha.org/willow/greenwald/)  though  this is more like a
        scrapbook than an interactive Blog.
        Here's another one (hosted at Blogmeister) which is much more complete 
        I hope this helps explain a new trend which is taking off like wildfire 
        many communities. I look forward to your experiences and thoughts.
