Blogging for everyone

As an English teacher, I have always wanted to have a blog, where I regularly write to model to students what it looks like to write on a regular basis. I have also wanted to get rid of traditional journals and do more on line types of journal work.
Some students love the process of creating a blog. WordPress allows me to create pages under a classroom blog and then update the typing that students send to me on a frequent basis. It is a great alternative to all of the paper assignments. Plus, this way, students can see what each other wrote. I finally feel like everything is organized. Now, I have all of the word press or blog links that my students are using for platforms linked to my overall Google docs website. It is just nice to have student work handy and be able to really get to know people by what their blogs say.
