Still, there's lots of posts on this blog, dating back several semesters. Feel free to brows. Check the labels for quick access to posts by topics.

Have You Tumbled Upon Tumblr?

Tumblr is an easy-to-use blogging site that is fast becoming popular among teens and pre-teens who are blogging on their own time. Check Tumblr's About page. Also, review the page, Why Everyone Loves Tumblr. Listen to David Karp, Tumblr's founder, talk about Tumblr:



Blogger is just as popular, if not more so, but it's the ease of use and many visual effects on Tumblr that make the site appealing to new bloggers.
 
If you are not blogging with one of these sites, what site do you use? If you are not blogging at all, what are you waiting for?
 
Here's a blog post by one educator,Kim Cofino, who sees blogging as way for students to showcase their accomplishments: Blogs as Showcase Portfolios. She includes in her post links to parts of her students' showcase portfolios. Do you agree with Kim that blogging is a way for students to showcase their self-reflection, accomplishment of goals, and progress? Would you consider using blogging with students,  or do you already? If so, do you recommend it to others?
